Anna Faris - Anna Faris For The Dictator?

Anna Faris is being lined up for a role in 'The Dictator'.

The 'House Bunny' actress has entered negotiations to play the part of an organic food store owner in the project, which sees Sacha Baron Cohen play a dictator who heads to the United Nations only to find he has been replaced by a lookalike in his own country.

While roaming New York, he comes across Anna's character, who helps to change his dictatorial way of thinking.

Former 'Seinfeld' writers Alec Berg, Jeff Schafer and David Mandel have written the project, which is being produced by Sacha and Scott Rubin.

Larry Charles, who worked with Sacha on his movies 'Borat' and 'Bruno' is helming the movie, which is inspired by the novel Zabibah and The King, written by former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.

Anna recently featured as Rachel in animated movie 'Yogi Bear' and completed filming on comedy 'What's Your Number?' opposite Chris Evans.
