Faris is back for latest Dimension 'Movie''

Returning for her fourth installment as the comic screen queen, Anna Faris will get paid $2 million upfront to reprise her role as virginal and slightly dimwitted heroine Cindy Campbell in “Scary Movie 4.”

With performance bonuses, her payday could exceed $3 million.

Dimension Films is mounting the fourth installment to shoot in July. David Zucker will be back as the director, using the creative team from “Scary Movie 3.”

Faris, who next stars in Lions Gate’s “Waiting,” just wrapped the New Line romantic comedy “Just Friends” and has committed to play the lead in the NBC pilot “Blue Skies.” She will film the pilot and then start work on “Scary Movie 4.”
