Amanda Bynes has joined the cast of the Farrelly Brothers comedy "Hall Pass" for Warner Bros. Pictures.

According to Variety: Amanda Bynes has joined the cast of the Farrelly brothers' comedy "Hall Pass" for New Line. Owen Wilson, Jenna Fischer and Jason Sudeikis have already boarded the project, which is being directed by Bobby Farrelly and Peter Farrelly.

The story revolves around two married couples who find themselves going through the motions and the wives give their husbands a "hall pass" to engage in extracurricular affairs. When the wives begin exercising the same privilege for themselves, things get complicated.

The Farrellys are producing through their Conundrum Entertainment banner with Conundrum's Bradley Thomas along with Charles B. Wessler. The brothers co-wrote the script with Kevin Barnett and Pete Jones.

Throughout her career, Bynes has showed that she is naturally funny and she should fit perfectly in the film. The actress, whose bigscreen credits include "She's the Man," most recently appeared in the musical "Hairspray" and used to star in her own Nickelodeon TV series.

I have high hopes for this film, so hopefully the Farrelly brothers will deliver another hilarious flick. I think “There’s Something About Mary” is one of the best comedies of all time, and their last film, “The Heartbreak Kid,” was underappreciated.

Bynes begins filming next week in Atlanta.
