Ryan Reynolds and Anna Faris Sharing Too Much Information
by Ethan Anderton
November 16, 2009
If there's one thing that the internet has ruined (and believe me there's much more than one thing) it's the English language. It's absolutely maddening to hear people use phrases like BRB (be right back) and BTW (by the way) which have spawned from instant messaging and invaded everyday verbal conversations. Now we'll get a bigger dose of this abomination to language as Variety reports Ryan Reynolds and Anna Faris are set to star in TMI, a romantic comedy that will explore the premise that while honesty is the best policy for a relationship, "too much information" might not be the best thing. How exactly does that work?
Reynolds will also executive produce the script written by Kirsten "Kiwi" Smith (writer of The Ugly Truth and The House Bunny) and longtime Saturday Night Live producer Marc Klein. This project is the first purchase from Universal's new chairman and co-chair Adam Fogelson and Donna Langley, respectively so the hope is for this to be among a whole slew of new projects to help them bounce back from a devastating year at the box office in 2009. With a very vague plot description, it's difficult to see how this will turn out this early on, but as always we'll keep our ears to the ground for any updates. Now they just need a director.
