Indie youth-culture director Gregg Araki has cast Anna Faris in his upcoming stoner comedy, "Smiley Face," says the Hollywood Reporter.

Faris, who became known to audiences in the Wayans brothers’ "Scary Movie" spoofs, will play an aspiring actress/slacker in the Araki flick who accidentally eats some weed brownies; hilarity ensues. The story is penned by first time writer Dylan Haggerty and is being co-produced by Anonymous Content and First Look Studios, whose upcoming slate includes much heavier pics like Nick Cave’s "The Proposition," Larry Clark‘s "Wassup Rockers," and Wes Craven‘s "The Breed."

Faris next appears in "Scary Movie 4" this April, and will play alongside Uma Thurman and Luke Wilson in this summer’s "My Super Ex-Girlfriend."
