Jennifer Aniston is a Goree Girl

Jennifer Aniston is a Goree Girl

Jennifer Aniston will produce a period musical for DreamWorks titled Goree Girls, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which she may also star in.

Goree Girls is based on a true story about singing prisoners — eight women serving time at Texas’ Goree Prison during the 1940s who formed one of the first all-female country and western acts in the country and captured the hearts of millions of fans in the process.

Aniston, 38, is a former partner of ex-hubby Brad Pitt‘s production company Plan B. She has several producing projects in development via that relationship including the upcoming The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, which Brad stars in.

    Hopefully Jen has no monetary interest in Jesse James. Brad has screwed it up to the point that it may never open. Last I heard it COULD open in Deceber in LIMITED THEATERS. Seems it’s too long (4 hours) and very boring.

    Whatever happened to her other 3 forever work in progress, pending production mode movies WANTED, SENATOR WIFE & GAMBIT ?

    She never seems to be able to do anything on her own. She never accomplish anything without having an entourage. Even this is her bff producer friend project Kristen Hahn. gosh , she really is a failure.

    I didn't know she could sing... Says:

    Is she in fact going to be in this Country Western play?

    As far as Plan B, the couple of articles I’ve read from reliable sources state she took a handful of projects with her to produce under her own as of yet named production company, along with a monetary payout. She also stated in one of her post divorce interviews (I forget which)that Plan B had gotten too big and that was one of the reasons she was ok leaving it behind. She is not a part of the company anymore and the current projects have nothing to do with her. The last one she was associated with (or Kristin Hahn anyway) was The Departed. This blurb from Yahoo (original source of this particular news snippet) is incorrect as AOJJ is Brad’s and Plan B’s.

    NOW THE REAL REVIEWS ABOUT A MIGHTY HEART…..

    About Jolie’s performance – CANNES: Trumpet the cause, don’t dwarf it + models dissed at the Du Cap, a Rolls ride and Clooney in zoom
    By Liza Foreman

    “When I did make it into the cinema to see “A Mighty Heart,” “We Own the Night,” and “Ocean’s 13” frankly I asked myself why I’d bothered. The first featured Angelina in one of, I thought, the kitschy-est performances of her career. Following on from the work of Jennifer Lopez in “Bordertown,” which was laughed out of the cinema at the press screening in Berlin, it makes you wonder whether it’s not better for actors of a certain stature to trumpet these causes rather than dwarf such important political films.”

    PS…Ocean’s 13 BOMBED!!!! barely 33 million???!!

    Angelina Jolie ((((dwarfed such important political film)))))

    Jolie’s performance was (((kitschy)))))

    A Mighty Heart WILL BOMB!!!!!! It’s unfortunate because Marianne Pearl deserves better.

    For A Mighty Heart:

    (((A MIGHTY HEART WILL BOMB!!!))))

    A Mighty Heart, by Ed Gonzalez
    Posted: June 7, 2007

    Bad Michael Winterbottom movies are not uncommon, but none have been as useless as A Mighty Heart. The film’s only achievement may be what Premiere’s Glenn Kenny acknowledges as the director’s understanding that audiences are no longer able to look at Angelina Jolie onscreen without seeing Angelina Jolie. Winterbottom recognizes the actress’s iconicity as a force that must be reckoned with—which is to say, disguised. Except the tricks he employs to help the actress disappear into the film’s tapestry of uncertainty aren’t exactly new and reek of evasiveness. You could say they’re as transparent as this painstaking chronicle of a police investigation is gutless.

    Asking no questions, giving no insights, and demanding nothing of his audience, Winterbottom dramatizes the last days in the life of Daniel Pearl in his typically cold, hyperventilating fashion: cinematography that looks like the walls of the Lincoln Tunnel, shots that don’t last more than five seconds, and lazy cultural specificity. His faux sense of urgency attempts to keep the blood pumping, except all it does is camouflage this historical recreation’s almost disturbing lack of resonance. Getting at nothing about Daniel’s wife Mariane (Jolie) as a woman or a journalist, or the ethical conundrum of Americans living in foreign lands, Winterbottom settles for a cliché portrait of a wife waiting for her husband to come home

    Esquire Magazine does an in depth fluff piece on Angelina Jolie this month that is celeb worship beyond its finest. But it may not hold up well for Brangelina fans that have always claimed that Jolie didn’t split Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. The article comes straight out and says that Brad left Jennifer for Angelina. Jolie has always maintained that wasn’t the case.

    It first notes that Brad Pitt bought ‘A Mighty Heart’ for Jennifer Aniston as soon as he read the manuscript, with the idea in mid that he would give her the lead role in the film. Of course jolie gets the lead now as she is with brad. Then the article flatly states that Brad left Jen for Angelina.

    ***

    “When Brad Pitt left Jennifer for the Angelina after the filming of Mr. and Mrs. Smith…” the article notes in one area. In another area it talks of the Us Weekly Magazine cover that speaks of Jolie’s “Twisted Double Life” and notes that one part of that is “because she wrested Brad Pitt away from Jennifer Aniston.” Did Angelina steal Brad away from Jennifer during the filming of Mr. and Mrs. Smith?

    Were they going at it during the filming as all the rumors speculated at the time? And the real question did she hint to the author Tom Junod and come clean that she is a home wrecker as many have called her since the split of the golden couple? Or was it just the author’s opinion?

    Did Loonies praise Esquire magazine????

    Angelina goes after what she wants and whenever she wants with everything she has.

    She wanted Brad . She went after him. And she got him. Good for her. She saw a good thing, and she didn’t care about what anybody would thing or say.

    Once Angie sets her eyes on something or somebody, there’s no stopping her.

    I would have gone after Brad, too. I wish I was more like her. She is my hero. Life is too short. No excuses!
