Zelniker's 'Vinyl' spins roles for Faris, Sokoloff

Anna Faris, who turned heads for her bubbly turn in Sofia Coppola's "Lost in Translation," will team with "The Practice" star Marla Sokoloff to star in Richard Zelniker's "Vinyl." Thora Birch and Jena Malone have already signed on to the project, which is due to start shooting in February in Los Angeles. Zelniker is directing from his own script. "Vinyl" centers on the women behind a male rock 'n' roll band that is on the verge of breakout success. Faris will play the live-in girlfriend of the band's bad-boy lead guitarist. Sokoloff will star as a bar waitress who wreaks havoc on the band when she comes between a band member and his girlfriend. Other casting is expected to be announced in January. Bill Bannerman and Tom Rooker are producing for Zelniker. Faris is repped by the Gersh Agency and Raw Talent. Her other credits include the "Scary Movie" franchise and "May." Sokoloff is repped by Endeavor and Myles Levy at James/Levy/Jacobson. She next stars in the 2004 Sundance Film Festival entry "Home of Phobia." (Chris Gardner)
