Dodgeball‘s Rawson Thurber is directing. Aniston is in talks to play the fake wife, who’s actually a hooker. Her Horrible Bosses costar Jason Sudeikis is eying the role of the family patriarch (he’s the pot smuggler). The kids are juvenile delinquents. The raunchy comedy, described as a “warped Vacation,” has a script by Wedding Crashers scribes Bob Fisher & Steve Faber, and the film’s produced by David Heyman, Happy Walters, Vince Newman and Tucker Tooley, with Benderspink exec producing. Aniston is coming off Wanderlust, and she’s repped by CAA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
She is separately attached to star in an an untitled comic heist thriller written and to be directed by Justin Theroux. Aniston, Theroux and Jerry Weintraub are producers. Aniston and Theroux became a couple after they worked together on Wanderlust.
Rocker Steven Tyler gave Jennifer Aniston a belated birthday treat on Tuesday when he called in during a her radio chat with Los Angeles DJ Ryan Seacrest to sing to her.
Aniston, a lifelong Aerosmith fan, gasped and giggled as the singer crooned a birthday greeting to the actress to the tune of his band’s monster hit “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing.”
The actress was promoting new her movie “Wanderlust” on the show when Seacrest, the host of “American Idol,” introduced Tyler, a judge on the TV talent show.
He sang, “I could lie awake just to say happy birthday…”, prompting a thrilled Aniston to coo, “This is not happening… This is so great.”
She and Tyler then exchanged mutual adorations on air, with the superfan telling the rocker, “Oh my God, I’m so happy you’re on Idol. I’m obsessed.”
Tyler then revealed he was calling from a recording studio, where he and his Aerosmith bandmates are working on new material, prompting the actress to ask, “Will you throw the name Jennifer in any one of those songs – any one of ‘em?”
The two stars then talked about love, with newly engaged Tyler congratulating the birthday girl on her romance with actor/writer Justin Theroux and she responded, “It’s in the air… 2011 was a good year for love.”
As Seacrest wrapped up the birthday treat and Tyler headed back to work, Aniston said, “That will be my memory forever… That was a good one, you guys.”
Jennifer Aniston will play one of the leading roles in ‘Miss You Already’, the new dramedy film from fast rising British writer/director Paul Andrew Williams (London to Brighton, The Cottage, Cherry Tree Lane).
Set in London, the film follows two lifelong female friends whose friendship goes tits up when one gets pregnant and the other gets seriously ill. Williams has co-wrote the script with British actress-writer-producer Morwenna Banks.
The film has been compared to 1980s tearjerker Beaches.
EntertainmentOne has pre-bought the UK, Australian and Canadian rights to the movie out in Berlin and the film will be produced by Christopher Simon and Felix Vossen of Embargo Films. They are attempting to sell the U.S. rights now.
The Hollywood Reporter says filming will begin in the summer for a release in 2013 and casting for the other roles is already underway. Presumably the co-lead to Aniston will be British with the film being set in the UK.
Aniston can next be seen in the Judd Apatow produce comedy Wanderlust which opens next week in the U.S. but not until next month in the UK.

Jennifer Aniston is adopting a new dog.
The ‘Marley and Me’ actress – who was left devastated by the death of her beloved pet pooch Norman last year – has decided to start 2012 off in style by getting a new canine friend.
A source told America’s Star magazine: “Jennifer decided to give herself a New Year’s present to start the year off right – a new dog.
“She has been in mourning since Norman died.”
After visiting the Utah-based Best Friends Animal Society, Jennifer, 42, fell in love with a shepherd mix and wants to give the dog a loving family.
The source added: “Jen is ready to give another needy dog a home.”
Last year, Jennifer – who is dating actor Justin Theroux – got a tattoo in homage to Norman, by having his name tattooed on the inside of her right foot.
Explaining the inking she said: “That’s my dog. My baby who just passed away.
“I never thought that would ever happen. It’s just my way to pay homage to him – forever.”
Norman, a Welsh corgi-terrier mix, accompanied Jennifer – who also has a white German Shepherd named Dolly – everywhere, including on film location shoots, but he passed away last May due to complications from his old age.
Let’s hear if for fox-force Five!
The directors of the Lifetime tearjerker, including—maybe you’ve heard of them—Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore and Alicia Keys, are in the running for a Directors Guild of America Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Movies for Television and Miniseries for their work on the five-vignette drama about cancer patients and their families.
And they, along with codirectors Penelope Spheeris and Patty Jenkins, are the only women nominated in their category. (And all of the other TV categories in the DGA Awards field are mostly populated by men, as well.)
Well, Demi, turns out 2011 wasn’t all a bust!
Three years ago, Jennifer Aniston was crowned the most desired body in the annual Hollywood’s Hottest Looks survey, compiled by Beverly Hills plastic surgeons Richard W. Fleming M.D. and Toby G. Mayer, M.D.
Then … came the drought.
In 2010 singer Stacy “Fergie” Ferguson grabbed the top spot. Last year Aniston came in a close second to supermodel Gisele Bundchen.
But in 2012, it is again all about the “Friends” star, who topped the 15th annual Most Desired Female Body category at the age of 42, leaving 20-something stars Bar Rafaeli and Shakira in her dust.
Jennifer Aniston might be loved up with new man Justin Theroux, but that doesn’t mean that the actress has forgotten what heartache in the public eye feels like and that’s why she’s helping her pal Demi Moore get over her recent break-up.
The Friends star split up with Brad Pitt in 2005 amid rumours of a cheating scandal and now, she’s helping Demi get over her split with husband of six years Ashton Kutcher.
Jen has even offered the use of her yoga instructor Mandy Ingber and her private chefs Jewels and Jill Elmore, to help get her mind and body in top shape.
“Jen knows better than anyone what it’s like to have a break-up in the public eye,” a pal told Now magazine.
They also added: “Demi feels publicly humiliated and Jen can totally empathise. She’s read every self-help book out there and helped Demi compose the announcement of her split.”
Demi and Jen became friends as they co-directed Five, which was the series of short films about breast cancer that they had been promoting when Ashton allegedly cheated with 23-year-old Sara Leal.
This is an “in honour” holiday greeting card. A donation was made in the name of the recipient to St Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and Best Friends Animal Society.
And the sender(s)?
“Jen & Justin”. As in Aniston and Theroux. And if that’s not cosy enough for you, I’m told that there are two linked “Js” on the cover…
Like, when you link your twin initials, you know it’s Love For Life.
