Marlon Wayans continues the Wayans family tradition of doing big things. He recently signed on to star and produce "The Year of Living Biblically" for Paramount Studios. Plan B picked up rights to A.J. Jacobs' best-selling nonfiction book in 2005, two years before it was published by Simon & Schuster.

For the book, subtitled "One Man's Humble Quest to Obey the Bible as Literally as Possible," Jacobs spent a year attempting to live by the rules of the Old and New Testaments, with comic and enlightening results.

Julian Farino (HBO's "Entourage") is attached to direct, and Jay Reiss wrote the script.

Also coming on board as producers are Rick Alvarez of Wayans Brothers Entertainment and Lisa Suzanne Blum.
