Ricci, Cedric Are Faire in Love

Christina Ricci, Owen Benjamin, Nadine Velazquez, Bill Engvall and Cedric the Entertainer have joined the romantic comedy “All’s Faire in Love” for That’s Hollywood and Patriot Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

Previously titled “Ye Olde Times”, the story follows an eager drama school grad (Benjamin) whose new Renaissance Faire theater troupe makes him their fetch boy.

His hopes and libido rise when he spots a Faire virgin (Ricci), but swashbuckling colleagues threaten to thwart their budding romance.

Cedric replaces the once-attached Jack Black as Professor Shockworthy, whose appearances bookend the film he narrates in fairy-tale style.

Scott Marshall (“Keeping Up With the Steins”) directs from Robert A. White’s screenplay. Ann-Margret, Matthew Lillard and Louise Griffiths also star.

Shooting begins this month in Michigan.
