Anna Faris cast in 'Wedding Banned'

In talks to play Robin Williams daughter in romantic comedy

Anna Faris is in negotiations to star as Robin Williams' daughter in "Wedding Banned," a romantic comedy for Touchstone.

"Banned" revolves around a long-divorced couple who kidnap their daughter (Faris) on her wedding day to prevent her from making the same mistakes they did. The parents rekindle their relationship as they elude cops and the angry groom.

Williams is on board as the father; the mother has not been cast.

Jack Amiel and Michael Begler wrote the script.

The project, produced by Mandeville's David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman, has no director attached. Nicole Rocklin and Blye Faust also are producing. Kristin Burr is overseeing for Touchstone.

Faris, repped by Gersh and Raw Talent Entertainment, recently signed to star with Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake in "Yogi Bear" for Warner Bros. She can be heard in Sony's animated "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs."
