Leslie Mann, star of the upcoming comedy 17 Again, told reporters that she will appear in Robert Rodriguez' next movie, Shorts. "It's a kids' movie about this group of kids that find a magical rock," Mann explained during a news conference on Sunday in Beverly Hills, Calif. "Whoever holds the rock, whatever they wish for comes true."

In 17 Again, Mann plays the wife of Matthew Perry's Mike O'Donnell, a late-30s parent who gains a chance to rewrite his adolescence when he is magically transformed back into his teenage self.

Mann said that she plays another mom in Shorts. "I play a mother who wishes to be closer with her husband," she said. "We become one. Like, the same person. It's cool."
