'Ex' Marks the Spot for Faris, Izzard
LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com)- Eddie Izzard and Anna Faris are joining Regency Enterprises' comedy "Super Ex."
The Ivan Reitman-directed project stars Uma Thurman and Owen Wilson.
Wilson stars as a normal guy who breaks up with his girlfriend (Thurman) after he discovers that she's really a superhero, or perhaps after she becomes too controlling and neurotic. She decides to use her powers for evil and not for good, at least so far as it involves getting revenge on him.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Faris ("Scary Movie") will play a love interest for Wilson's character, while Izzard will play the film's main villain, a baddie named Professor Bedlam. Don Payne ("The Simpsons") is writing the script.
In addition to her lead roles in the "Scary Movie" films, Faris' credits include a supporting part in the indie hit "Lost in Translation" and an guest starring arc in the final season of NBC's "Friends."
Izzard won two Emmys for his 1999 television special "Eddie Izzard: Dress to Kill." He's been seen on the big screen in films like "The Cat's Meow," "Ocean's Twelve" and the upcoming "Romance & Cigarettes."
