Jennifer Garner Wants to Be WB

Jennifer Garner has teamed up with her producing partner Juliana Janes to sign a first-look deal with Warner Bros. for their Vandalia Films banner, Variety reports.

One project in development is 3 Days in Europe, a romantic adventure following a couple as they face danger and excitement on what was supposed to be the perfect Valentine’s Day vacation.

Vandalia Films has partnered with Hugh Jackman and John Palermo of Seed Prods. to bring the graphic novel to the bigscreen. Jackman and Garner are attached to star.

“To start with, we’ll develop material as potential starring vehicles for me,” Jennifer said. “I’d have to be pretty passionate about something to commit to the project if I wasn’t intending to be in it.”

    check jen-fans for the interview

  • BETSY SMITH

    WONDER WHAT BEN IS GOING TO BE DOING??? ARE THEY
    DIVORCED ALREADY AND SHE IS FINALLY GOING AHEAD
    WITH HER OWN PRODUCTION COMPANY PROJECTS…
    MOVING ALONG AND WORKING HARD BACK IN THE BUSINESS…

    JENNIFER AND HUGH JACKMAN CO PRODUCING A MOVIE TOGETHER THAT IS A FIRST..

    IT IS GREAT THAT SHE IS GETTING INTO BUSINESS WITH WARNER BROTHERS..

    ABOUT TIME THAT SHE DID SOMETHING ON HER OWN!

  • anonymous

    Guess she’s definitely not on the “mommy” track anymore..Sounds like family is taking a back seat to business now for her.Where is Violet and Ben-are they still around?

  • monrose15

    I haven’t seen Violet in a long time

  • get a clue

    Projects in development sometime never come to fuition, so it may seem like a lot on her plate but it is does not mean she will be filming any or all of these films in the near future. Many actors have production companies, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Reese Witherspoon, hell even Jessica Alba has one. It assures them of potential good roles for the future that they control.
    The Hugh Jackman film will probably happen sooner rather than later, apparently Hugh was on board first and got Jen to sign up after working out a deal with her as also a producer.
    Jen career is as hot as ever. Good for her.

  • CherieB

    Hey Jennifer, just because you have a “vanity” company doesn’t change the fact that you just don’t have it. Get ready for your projects to languish in developmental hell.

  • t-cup

    Well Jen went into hiding after the oscar fiasco, where she was so uppity that all the blogs were thrashing her. This woman is so full of crap finally her publicist told her that it’s not cool to have so many photo ops with Violet. Do you think for a moment that these celebs are going to stop working for their kid then you are in lala land they love the money the idolizing like her fans and the life style. This woman is so average looking and has done botox that it’s not funny, she is still fugly looking and can’t act her way out of a wet paper bag like her small penis hubby.

  • BETSY SMITH

    WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY SMALL HUSBAND..ACTING WISE OR
    SIZE..WHY NOT HAVE A PHOTO OP WITH VIOLET…WHEN NO ONE
    HAS SEEN JEN SINCE THAT OBAMA FIASCO FUNDRAISER…

    GETTING A PRODUCER CREDIT MEANS YOU TAKE A CUT IN PAY..

    INTERESTING TO SEE IF ANY OF THESE PROJECTS GET GOING..

  • American

    Sounds a lot like Six Days, Seven Nights

  • Adoring Fan

    Happy belated birthday Jen. I am so missing you and Violet since you have been away filming your movie in Boston. I know Violet is happy away from the paps as is Ben. Good luck to you and your family. Love always.

  • Ha!

    I think you’re delusional, t-cup.

  • mina

    Crapola is back, does she really think that people want to see her in movies…I don’t think so.

  • t-cup

    Your delusional.

  • Katie

    Some of you people are truly pathetic! Who cares if Garner is this or that..or Affleck is a small whatever(t-cup).. who cares if they hold a fundraiser for Obama or support him(Betsy)? Despite your wishes, they aren’t divorced yet either not yet anyhow .. get over it.

    If her production company goes to hell than so be it.. a lot of others do. the fact that she got a first look from WB is quite something.

    If people do not like her than fine stay away don’t start posting horrible comments or spam the discussion thread with rumours, rude comments or conjectures about Garner, her husband, or child.

    Let her fans enjoy her message boards withouth having to get deal with all the pettiness.

    And yes, happy birthday Jennifer Garner!

  • I agree Katie

    I agree Katie! These pathetic people are so torn up with jealousy they are the ultimate pathetic creeps.

  • disgusting

    I think her fans are pathetic, the woman needs to get over herself, she thinks she got a prize when she hooked Ben. Just because a person is in a couple of movies don’t make her career hot, she still cannot act. Her husband cannot act nor direct, his brother cannot act either. How can anyone think that family has any talent. People get angry when they hear other people’s opinions. JG always has the same look on her face when she acts she has no range, Ben’s gone baby gone was so bad I can’t believe that he won an award for that crap. It was an awful awful movie…it was so unrealistic. Casey talks like he has s#it in his mouth or marbles…he also is boring actor….ewwwwwwww fans keep your A#sflecks…put em on a pedestal and I bring them down…lol!!!

  • Katie

    disgusting…Jennifer Garner has made a name for herself, her husband Ben has made a name for himself, as has Casey Affleck.

    You my friend, are jealous your life probably isn’t worth anything compared to hers.

    Why are you full of jealousy and hate for someone you don’t know a thing about????

    Experience(thanks to 6 years of dealing with low income citizens on social assistance) tells me somoene like you has just gone througfh a major loss…let me guess ..you lost your home during the sub-prime disaster?

    Get over it!

  • buckeyegurl

    Yes, #26, appropriate name ‘DISGUSTING’. Don’t you know negativity is bad for your health? It spreads like cancer and eventually takes you down one way or another. It’s so obvious you are a petty and vindictive person and have a very unhappy life. I feel sorry for you. You too mina (same person)!

    As for Jen, you don’t have to like her, but like it or not, her career is HOT. Get over it haters!

    I do miss pics of this family though. I’m sure being away from the paps has been wonderful for them.

  • remember da truth

    I think it’s great that she’s been able to hide from the paps. Everytime she took Violet outdoors she was photographed — and haters rushed to the threads to look, and then to tear their hearts out over it, calling it a photo op. They HATE a happy, attractive mother on her rise up in her career,

    I always say the posts reveal so much about the people posting… Katie #27 is SO RIGHT. These people are upset that now that she has a child she is WORKING like most other mothers in the world. How dare she! Well, why not? Are you having trouble working? Paying your bills? Does your husband ignore you? Aww, poor you.

    Jen is doing great, and I’m glad to see her so happy and taking control of her movies.

  • http://365daysofmovies.blogspot.com/ MovieWatcher

    I am glad to see her moving ahead and this in no way means that motherhood is taking a back seat. Why does people try to fit others in little boxes

  • Love her

    Where is she?????????????????

  • summerbaby

    How come we didn’t see any b-day pics of Jen? There is usually something somewhere when one of them has a birthday, maybe I just haven’t been looking on the right sites. Good luck on the film development, but I would rather see her starring with Michael Vartan than Hugh Jackman….now THAT I would pay huge bucks to see!!!!!!!

  • Pretty

    To # 31

    Jennifer Garner is in Boston and is filming the following movies:

    1) “The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past” with Matthew McConaughey and
    Michael Douglas, which she already finished.

    2) “This Side of the Truth” with Ricky Gervais, Rob Lowe, Tina Fey and
    Jason Bateman. Now she is working on it.

    I think she is very happy now that she is enjoying her privacy in Boston
    for this much of time. In Boston, no crazy paparazzi following her compared to L.A.

  • Love her

    thanks
    But I really don’t get why the pap agencies have pics of Matthew McConaughey, sandra bullock and ryan reynolds who are also in Boston but not of Jen???

  • Adoring Fan

    To #34, there were at least two photos of her on the set of Ghost of Girlfriends. One in a wedding gown and another one with Matt M. wearing coats and caps. I am glad they are able to elude the paps but at the same time, I really miss Violet. Can’t wait to see her again.

  • Amber

    Some of these comments are such b*llshit. Why is it that when a man has a successful career, he’s providing for his family, but when a woman does, she must be neglecting her family? What a double standard, especially today when a dual income family is expected. Every week there are pap pictures of her at a park or the farmer’s market with her daughter. Some of you people are such assh*les.
