Cameron Diaz is moving back to the world of comedy after spending her last couple of films doing more dramatic roles. Of course, I'm talking about MY SISTER'S KEEPER and THE BOX, both of which were met with mixed reviews.

Now the actress is headed back to comedy, the territory she knows best. She's already got three movies on her plate: SHREK FOREVER AFTER, GREEN HORNET, and KNIGHT AND DAY (the Tom Cruise spy comedy, previously titled WICHITA). Now Diaz is adding the "raunchy comedy" BAD TEACHER to her schedule.

The movie will center around Diaz, who plays a "foulmouthed, gold-digging middle-school teacher who, after getting dumped by her boyfriend, competes with a colleague for the affections of the school's model teacher." I'm all for actors stretching their acting muscles, but I'm glad to see Cameron Diaz doing comedy again. Her serious stuff just wasn't doing it for me.

BAD TEACHER is being written by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, who also write for "The Office" and have been linked to the upcoming GHOSTBUSTERS sequel.
