Jennifer Aniston: Adam Sandler's 'Pretend Wife'?

Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler may be working together on Pretend Wife, a romantic comedy due out near Valentine’s Day of 2011, THR reports.

The film, originally called Holiday in Hawaii in the script, will be shot early next year through Columbia Pictures.

Jen already has The Baster and The Bounty lined up for release next year; Adam has Grown Ups and The Zookeeper ready to hit the big screen in 2010.

  • Perry Ferrett

    I would much rather see Jennifer than some other overexposed actresses.

  • ManLESSton, I likely

    Pretend certainly fits Nippy. Pretend wife. Pretend A-Lister. Pretend fab at 40. Pretend woman. Pretend actor. Pretend personality. Pretend care for others. Pretend boyfriends. And the list just keeps on coming.
    .
    perry ferrett – Nippy is one of the MOST overexposed actresses and she can’t even act. good point.

  • spongebob :P

    ANOTHER FLOP MOVIE, poor Adam has to experienced this for the first time. Admit it , she’s not funny…when she tried to talk and smile, her botox face don’t move at all. All he rmovie SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • JA-the jealous hag

    As usual Maniston has to latch to a big comedy star coz it has been proven she can’t open a movie on her own. Management & Love happens anyone? She figured Goree girls was going to be a huge flop and so had to find a big name comedy star to “help” her out. That and the fact that financing was pulled off the Goree movie due to her 2 back to back flops. We are no fools Manny. We know your tricks.

  • the bitch

    management FLOP , love happens FLOP …….

    Expect her to have a fake boyfriend for the promotion of BASTER and BOUNTY …..

    this is the best… super!!!

  • Cath

    another winner for Jen? R U crazy?
    her last few films are mega FLOPS.
    as this one will be too.
    Sandler is a has been & his last films didn’t even bring in the budget.
    Woman tries too hard.

    Another examply of JJ shilling for Huvane and spinning the factr to try to make it appear she still has a viable career.

    Here is what the Hollywood Reporter ACTUALLY said:

    ****************************************************
    “Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston MIGHT be playing pretend.

    Columbia is developing “Pretend Wife,” a romantic comedy that would serve as a Sandler vehicle and is in the process of gathering the wedding party.

    Aniston is IN TALKS to star opposite Sandler, with Sandler mainstay Dennis Dugan the leading contender to direct the project, though NO DEALS HAVE BEEN MADE as the studio is figuring out the seating arrangement.”

    **********************************************************
    She is merely IN TALKS, but knowing how desperate Huvane is now that he has been FIRED from PMK/HBH, I question whether even THAT is true. My guess is Kevin managed to get her a reading, and Stephen is now feverishly sending out press releases falsely indicating she has the role. SHE DOESN’T.

  • aha

    They both are no longer big drawn movie stars. Their recent movies are all flops.

    I hope they invest their money well.

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    ..`adam might be nice and all but he makes some crappp ass movies. doesn’t he get tired of making unfunny trash comedies?! and will [x] ever make a film that’s not a romantic comedy that stars someone funnier and more talented than she is to carry the film?!? ahahahaha..

  • No Longer A-List

    A reminder to Columbia of just how much of a financial risk she is:

    Management:
    Domestic: $934,658 64.9%
    + Foreign: $504,795 35.1%
    ————————————-
    = Worldwide: $1,439,453

    It made LESS THAN ONE MILLION DOLLARS IN THE US!!!.

    My guess is Coluimbia will insist on someoen like Sandy Bullock, a PROVEN BOX OFFICE SUCCESS!

  • sugarsugar

    OMFG!!!
    LOLLLLL please God, let this be true, it’ll make my life.
    what’s next?
    The desperate ex-housewive?
    The spinter?
    The lonely bones?
    oh and we’ve already got…. THE BASTER!!!!!!!

    hahahahahaha
    I love this woman. She’s so entertaining.

  • rocky

    @spongebob :P:

    It’s not his first flop. He’s had a few that have only gotten 1 and a half stars. His last movie was a total disaster! I just can’t see Jennifer with him — YUCK!!!

    Marley & Me was a great movie, but not for Jennifer or ‘what’s his name’ — the kids and the dogs WERE the movie. As WC Fields once said, “Never make a movie with kids or animals”. Jennifer is the next Meg Ryan — and what has she done lately?

  • rocky

    @I n F a m o u s l y C o o l:

    OMG!!! ITA!!!!!

  • rocky

    @No Longer A-List:

    Sandy ROCKS in ‘Blind Side’. Great movie and she’s WONDERFUL in it. A MUST SEE!

  • Angia+Jamie

    Alright! Another Jen movie that is sure to be a riot. I bet she sure is glad she doesn’t have to bother with people talking about how she likes the sexy times with her brother!

  • Dawn9476

    @No Longer A-List:

    Management was a low budget movie that that Jennifer made with her good friend Steve Zahn. It wasn’t expected to make a lot of money.

    As far as Sandra is concerned, she is not a guaranteed box office success. All about Steve was a big failure though I am sure in her case, its the writing and other factors that are to blame for its failure while with Jennifer, it is all on her.

  • Jen

    that’s great! Love them both. Any Adam Sandler movie is extremely funny!

  • amy

    Fake comes easy for whinny after all she herself said her work is going parallel with her life.

  • Angie+Jamie

    Hey…maybe Angie should try doing a romantic comedy about marrying her brother…and they try not to let anybody know they are siblings…but then they keep having these messed up kids…and people start to wonder what’s up…and then they see some pictures of them when they were kids and they find out they are brother and sister…and then…no…nevermind…it’s not funny…IT’S DISGSUTING!

    YOU LOONS WORSHIP A PERVERT! LOL! FREAKS!

  • sway

    she is a bad actress!!!

  • Angie+Jamie

    But IF somebody was going to do the movie, what would it be called? “Family Family”? “Oh Brother”? “The Wifester”? I am open to suggestions.

  • addds

    she is bad actrees, and i hate her films

  • angel

    @Angie+Jamie:
    i think you’re missing the point… jennifer will always go for this sh*t types of films and with stories and titles that as herself said, are a refelction of her life. That’s why she’s such an easy target and quite frankly a laughing stock. I wish she would challenge herself more, I don’t think she’s got much to loose at this point. I can’t have much artistic respect for someone who’ll just go for the same roles over and over again, always with the same looks.
    As Johnny Depp once said:
    I think it’s an actor’s responsibility to change every time. Not only for themselves and the people they’re working with, but for the audience. If you just go out and deliver the same dish every time . . . it’s meat loaf again . . . you’d get bored.

    I really do hope Goree Girls turn out to be good. You never know with these things and I don’t like to make any pre-judgments. Just say what I’m seeing now.

  • besane

    How about “Pretend pregnancy” since her fans are so delusional trying to believe Aniston had miscarriages?

  • Shar

    “pretend Wife” is “Picture Perfect” all over again. This poor chick is officially irrelevant.

    ************************************************

    BULL! Kimmell Entertainment financed Management and they are not a charitable organizartion. They invest in films for the express purpose of MAKING A PROFIT!!! Insteasd, becuase of Aniston, they last EVERYTHING!!!

    What kind of idiot thinks a company invests $20 mil because they WANT to lose it? I suggest you tell Huvane to provide you with a new script, because you sound moronic.

    As for “low budget”, Management cost $20 mil. Paranormal Activity, by comparison, cost only $15 THOUSAND, and was initially released in only 12 theatres. But it has made $107,401,194 to date and hasnt even hit the foreign market yet.

    I repeat, a new script is sorely needed if you want to convince anyone that a woman who can’t even sell a million dollars in tickets is still a “star” LOL!!!!!

  • dawne

    As her film titles reflect her sorry life; why shouldn’t this? Pretend is possibly the closest adjective to her personality type and life as any of the other titles.

    So keep on keepin’ on JA, you’ll trip over your phoney azz act anytime soon cuz you aren’t reading the signs of the universe that are telling you to move the eff on.

  • Angie+Jamie

    @Besane…funny coming from a fan of someone who faked a twins pregnancy to make money.

  • Jane

    Aniston always does movies that co-relates her life. She was Brad Pit’s pretend wife for 4 years.

    Even Brad describes his marriage to Aniston as a business merger.

  • Denise

    Jennifer looks just like a man.

  • Angie+Jamie

    Do you think James Haven was sad when Angelina told him they had to stop making out in public if she was ever going to get another movie role again?

    ************************************************

    BULL! Kimmel Entertainment financed “Management” and they are not a charitable organization. They invest in films for the express purpose of MAKING A PROFIT!!! Instead, because of Aniston, they lost EVERYTHING!!! EVERY DIME OF THEIR INVESTMENT IS GONE because she is box office poison.

    What kind of idiot thinks a company invests $20 mil because they WANT to lose it? I suggest you tell Huvane to provide you with a new script, because you sound moronic. It’s clear you have never set foot in an office nor read a balance sheet in your life.

    That’s what I mean, YOU LOL The example of a delusional Jen fan.

  • ManLESSton, I likely

    @angel: didn’t the financing for Boring Girls fall through? Last I heard it was not even on the preproduction list because of no financing.

  • angel

    @ManLESSton, I likely:
    oooohh… oh dear. I’m not surprised though.

    quietly giggling….

  • Joy

    hey where’s bet and ellie? thought they slept on the job.

  • Angie+Jamie

    When I heard you guys were “retarded” over here, I didn’t know they meant literally. (Yikes.) I’ll try and keep it simple from now on. Honest.

  • T pain

    MANISTON ONLY WISHES SHE HAD THE BEAUTY ,BRAINS ,TALENT , SUCCESS AND MASS APPEAL AS SANDRA BULLOCK!!!

    SANDRA IS OLDER THAN JEN AND LOOKS BETTER TOO! YOU NEVER HEAR SANDY CRYING OVER A GREY HAIR AS MANISTON DID ON ELLEN!!

  • ronda

    both very funnyyyyyyy , i cant wait see movie better top movie…

  • Excuse me?

    ManLESSton, I likely @ 12/09/2009 at 3:51 pm @angel: didn’t the financing for Boring Girls fall through? Last I heard it was not even on the preproduction list because of no financing.

    ______________________________________________________

    As I posted months ago, Alan Bernon (Mr. Money Bags at Overnight Productions) became every nervous after Management’s earth-shattering failure. He was not reassured by the performance of Love Happens. Small, independent investors cant afford to take risks in this economy.

    We now have the problematic situation of Paltrow’s sh!tty country music fiilm siphoning off whatever audience the Hag might have been able to drum up for HER sh!tty country music film.

    So the answer to your query is YES, the financing was pulled. That’s why K. Huvane is frantically trying to find her another project and S. Huvane is frantically trying to attach her name to something, anything, so he can create the illusion that she is now “too busy” to do Goree. In fact, she is not likely to get another project until investors see what happens with Bounty and Baster. If both flop, you can stick a fork in her stubby little legs because she’s “done.”
