Jennifer Aniston: Marley & Me

Jennifer Aniston: Marley & Me

Jennifer Aniston has fetched herself a new role in Marley & Me, an adaptation of John Grogan‘s bestselling memoir about an incorrigible Labrador retriever.

David Frankel (The Devil Wears Prada) will direct, Owen Wilson will co-star and production will commence in 2008.

According to Variety, “Marley is the yellow lab adopted by Grogan, a columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer, and his wife. Their idea was to give them a taste of parenthood, but the dog proved to be a hyperactive handful. He wreaks havoc, gets kicked out of obedience school and gets even worse when the children begin to arrive, yet becomes an indispensable part of the family.”

Aniston, 38, also scored herself a small role in He’s Just Not That Into You, an ensemble comedy based on the best-selling book that is a social commentary about modern-day relationships and how men and women often misconstrue the intentions of the opposite sex.

Ken Kwapis (License to Wed) will direct, production will star early September in L.A. and Drew Barrymore is producing via her Flower Films production company.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Aniston will play a woman in a long-term relationship with a boyfriend who will not commit to marriage.”

The film also stars Jennifer Connelly, Kevin Connolly, Bradley Cooper, Justin Long, Ginnifer Goodwin and Barrymore.

    I think she’ll wait for Brad ’till the end. Hopefully he’ll go back to her and starts taking regular showers and dress nicely again.

  • hollyword

    Why does Jen get herself into all these crap comedies. She needs to do something like ‘the good girl’ again. I’m sorry been did anyone actually see ‘license to wed’ it sucked more balls than paris hilton.

  • Mmmmm

    Wow she is playing a role based on Angie’s life :

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Aniston will play a woman in a long-term relationship with a boyfriend who will not commit to marriage.”

    The dog movie will bring out all the dog comments from all the real woof woofs (hags).

  • Deb

    Way to go Jen!!! Thanks Jared – the Jen haters who don’t have a life and are stupid enough to believe that she is still waiting for Brad, will now go crazy and show just how immature they are by what they post. No matter how much you hate her it will not make you pretty or rich!!

  • Yo

    I don’t think Brad and Angelina will break up any time soon and even if they did, why would she want him back. He may be pretty to look at, but he seriously comes off as someone who follows the other person’s lead when he’s in a relationship. Blah! Boring. Maybe JA didn’t handle her break up the way some other people would have, but she’s always seemed fairly sweet and private. I just don’t think JA is a good judge when it comes to the projects she does.

  • Mmmmm

    Funny that Jen got a thread, there is so much talk of her and what she is doing on the JP thread .. blamo Jen got one. Thanks to the hags and their constant talk of her, she gets tons of PR. Who news havna (whatever that is) when she has the JP fans talking her up. LOL Classic.

  • [~Famous~]

    Jennifer Connelly – Mmmmmmmm, HOT!

    Sounds like an awful movie. I am sure she will then hookup with Owen Wilson and he will treat her like shit and she will be depressed, blah blah blah…

  • Dumdums

    I would like to see her play a self-absorbed wealthy, spoiled woman in a long term marriage that refuses to commit to motherhood and family relationship with her handsome, kind long suffering husband.. OH WAIT?!!

  • Loser Chin Forever

    another bomb for Maniston.

  • Hmmmm

    She has to be the most overrated actress ever!

    TALENTLESS UGLY OLD H.A.G

  • cookie

    jo yes i dont like your comment coz you are stupid!stupid!stupid!

  • [~Famous~]

    Someone should Sphinx this biish and remove her nose.

  • Just Me

    I hope this movie bombs. It seems dumb, and I do not care for Jennifer AT ALL.

  • jo

    well cookie, you don’t seems to be that intelligent yourself, don’t go and project onto others what you are.

  • LJ

    I love that book, hopefully movie is good too.

  • Hater

    Where does the statement ‘refusing to commit to motherhood and family relationship’ come from exactly? That sounds like a HUGE assumption on your part. If part of their marriage problems stemmed from having or not children, why is it okay that he thought he could call the shots? And maybe, just maybe, she wasn’t ABLE to have children??? What would that make you think of your precious, pretty, follower Brad? And what f*cking business is it of ours?

  • carrie nae

    I am a big Angelina fan but for Jen… good for her. I still think she is just so-so.

  • Jen Sucks

    she plays and looks like Rachel in damn near every movie. she’s not a movie star though.

  • Izzie

    yay for a new Jen movie!

  • No More JA

    Damn, she’s a ugly horse!!!!

    I have NEVER liked aniston. I find her acting to be medicre and pedantic.

  • Sue

    Good for her! Hope they do well.

  • Diana

    She should do more voice over *she was really good in that cartoon movie, the one with the Giant and she was the voice of the mother of Howarth.

    Other than that she always comes out as Rachel, which is boring.

    Quite disappointing that she is going to be in Marley and Me, boo hoo.

  • wrkoutgrl

    California classy – love her and her movies.

  • boring

    boring hag,damn this woman is really ugly,she is one of the worst actresses in hollywood,i hope you losers can stay on the thread,bye

  • uke-chan

    Great! A movie based in ‘marley and me’. Great! It will be a really good movie!

  • too bad

    its about dam time. now we can all move on. Who knows maybe she will have a fling withOwen.. he seems to fall for his costars.
    He is hilarious and she likes to laugh. Now if she could only get him to stop visitng the playboy mansion.

    Well now she can go back to her career and life will go on.. this girl is pretty boring and does not have anything else going on anyway.

    I dont know how she will do in Barrymores film. there are some real heavy hitters there and she might get lost in the background noise..youve got Jennifer Connelly.. Drew Barrymore..Gennifer Goodwin.. great actress..(seen her on Mona Lisa smile.. she was fantastic. and then there is Scarlett johnansen.

  • pokeman

    she is not a good movie actress, a tv actress maybe. she’ll always be rachel greene. all the characters that she had played in the movies she had the same rachel greene expression. she tries to be a serious actress in derailed and it bomb. the only one that’s not a box office but got some good review was the good girl and that’s one out of 10 movies that she did. movies that did well in box office were the ones with ben stiller, jim carrey and vince vaugh. jen can’t carry a movie alone she needs support. if she is such a good actress, how come her movies bomb?

  • uke-chan

    34 pokeman

    this is so unfair, she is very good on comedy ;_;

  • too bad

    I guess art imitates life
    Jen is playing the role in this movie.. will vince play her opposite or maybe Paul.. hmmmm.

    And the dog story well need I say Norman her dog got the role first. hehehe

  • mandy

    Looks like in the end Angelina continue to get trumped by Brad. Their fans continue to say that Jennifer would not give him a baby, you are darn right who will try to bring a baby into a relationship of a man who is a cheater. But, seems as though she is the one lucked out, because when you look at the pictures of Brangelina on that yacht with the kids, Brad ignored the hell out of ANgelina. At one point she kind of walked the baby over to him he did not even blink, he continued to not acknowledge either on of them. This man has clearly checked out of this relationship emotionally, and next step physically. He went there long enough to do the photo op and got the hell up out of there. Hands down, Jen won. To add insult to injury, Angelina is looking like an eighty year old grandmother, and Jen is gorgeous, That KARMA is a true mo-fo, don’t you think?

    always tha maniston fans speaking about JOLIE, I know that you are jalous maniston never will be beautiful, and never will win a oscar and never will be a world idol. BUT MANISTON FANS PLEASE MOVE ON, SPEAKS ONLY ABOUT THE ALONE AND BORING LOFE OF YOUR IDOL
    ANGELINA IS HAPPY WITH HER FAMILY AND HER MAN ( HE LEFT MANISTON AND GO TO JOLIE REMEMBER), HER OSCAR AND HER CHARITY WORK.
    and is maniston happy? and you?

  • peggy

    She’ll mess this one up, too and blame it on the director or the timing or the other actors or maybe Jo. I’m with cookie.

  • carrie nae

  • pokeman

    uke-chan

    That’s not unfair. that’s the truth. What other serious movies you saw jen in beside the good girl and derailed? she did more comedies than action, drama, thriller, suspense or romance. She needs to stay away from comedy for a while and do something else.

    Yeah – Karma is so real!!! It is such a shame that people really don’t realize that some day they have to “pay the piper” so to speak.
    Don’t wish anything bad on anyone but will not be suprized about anything regarding the JP’s. Jen is a surviver – she has already proved that – she has nothing else to prove.
