Wolf pledges to direct Faris' sorority project


Fred Wolf has signed on to direct the untitled Anna Faris project for Columbia Pictures and Happy Madison.

The one-time "Saturday Night Live" writer will helm the comedy from a screenplay written by "Legally Blonde" scribes Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith.

The project, which had been in development at Paramount Pictures before it was put in turnaround, centers on a Playboy bunny (Faris) who gets kicked out of the Playboy mansion and becomes the house mother to the lamest sorority on campus.

Sony's Sam Dickerman and Adam Milano are overseeing for the studio, which is eyeing a late-summer start date.

Heather Parry brought the project into Happy Madison and will shepherd for the Sony-based shingle.

Wolf, who most recently helmed Happy Madison's "Strange Wilderness," is repped by UTA, Brillstein-Grey and attorney Jared Levine.
