It's been a while since Sony picked up the rights to Judi and Rob Barrett's 1982 book called Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs back in 2006. Now, in a conversation with MTV, Anna Faris has revealed that she and Andy Samberg are doing the lead voices in the film (perfect!), along with a bunch of undisclosed comedians. Faris will play a weather girl, and she says that the character will look like a tweaked version of her. Man, imagine those little weather maps in a sea of burgers, ice cream, and more, rather than clouds and lightning bolts.

As Erik described when the book got picked up, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs stems from "a scientist who tries to solve world hunger only to see things go awry as food falls from the sky in abundance." Instead of raining men like The Weather Girls sing, this town gets a meteorological wonderland of snowy mashed potatoes, juice rain, and more.

However, Faris says the film is only "very, very loosely -- based on the book. But it's a small town that rains food, basically. So hamburgers come down, and ice cream, and [the residents] have to figure out a way [to stop it]. Eventually, it gets more and more dangerous, and they have to figure out a way to stop the satellite machine that's raining food."

Now I'm hungry.
