Anna Faris is starring in Smiley Face, a stoner comedy being directed by Gregg Araki.

The film, which, according to The Hollywood Reporter, begins production this week, is being produced by First Look Studios' Henry Winterstern and Kevin Turen along with Anonymous Content's Steve Golin and Alix Madigan.

The story, penned by first-timer Dylan Haggerty, centers on a young actress and hopeless slacker (Faris) who, after she inadvertently ingests her roommate's pot-laced brownies, attempts to manage her day as it goes awry through a series of misadventures. Also cast in the film are John Krasinski (The Office), John Cho (Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle) and Jane Lynch (The 40 Year Old Virgin).
