Jennifer Aniston: 'Switch' with Dennis Quaid?

Jennifer Aniston and Dennis Quaid are in talks to star in Switch, an adaptation of the Elmore Leonard novel.

Aniston is in talks to play Mickey Dawson, and Quaid to play her crooked real estate developer husband. She’s kidnapped and ransomed by two ex-cons (John Hawkes and Yaslin Bey) and when the lowlife husband sees this as a way to get rid of his wife and refuses to pay the ransom, the kidnappers embrace a new opportunity: teaming with a pissed off bombshell housewife to get all of her husband’s money,” Deadline notes.

No deal is finalized yet, but Deadline reports that things look good for Jen and Dennis.

    Men love her.
    Lezzzies that shave?
    nope

  • LindaD

    Yay sounds good!

  • Manny

    How annoying and unoriginal of Maniston to remake Ruthless People. Maniston isn’t Bette Midler, not even close. Why won’t this worthless wacktress retire? Her movies are bad and she can’t act. Ugh…

  • Angelina

    I want to junglenuzzleJen myself.

  • Manny

    @AmberWaves:
    .
    LMAO… we said the same thing. Danny and Bette were fantastic in Ruthless People. Why does HW do this???

  • Guest

    Well Manny and AmberWaves, since the NOVEL this film is based on predates Ruthless People, this is most certainly not a retelling of that film.

  • me

    It sounds like Ruthless People

  • Sara

    Sounds like all her other bad films. Wanderlust’s tracking is so poor, flop ahead.
    Guess her fans will have to put their hopes for a big chinned baby on hold!
    It won’t be happening anytime soon and then she will be too old in her late 40s. So no baby ever!

  • Butch

    - HATE healthy pretty girls like Jen.
    I like scheming needy women with body dysmorphia.

  • Lisa

    Flop. This time the male lead isn’t Stiller, Wilson, or Rudd – someone who’s name alone can carry a rom-com movie.

  • Another Dud

    I’d rather watch Angie’s new rapemovie.

  • http://justjarde tota

    sound great
    good luck for jen

  • http://justjarde tota

    great news

  • http://justjarde mike

    she will take OSCAR for this role

  • jentheho

    @AmberWaves:

    Yup. At least Bette and Danny are two talented and funny people.

  • jentheho

    @mike:

    Yes she will. Oscar Mayer weiner. She sucked one in HB. Guess Jen Jen loves Oscar Mayer weiners.

  • http://justjarde mike

    jentheho
    please go away

    good luck for jenny

  • GRANMA IS SO OLG AND UGLY

    Wh0relina faggs GTFO! Just go and watch that awful Anti-Semitis movie Wh0relina just tried to make…

  • http://www.nationwidelawcenter.com/prweb.php Micael

    Good for her, bad for him. Her movies are no good.

  • Ron

    Bad casting if they pick Quaid. He hasn’t made a decent movie in years.

    Besides, he just cheated on his wife…..AGAIN! http://besabella.com/2012/02/14/serena-williams-hitting-partner-sascha-bajin-gets-the-dennis-quaid-treatment/

  • toria

    Didn’t she already do this plot in the Bounty Hunter?

  • jentheho

    @mike:

    I don’t think Jentheho will be going away any time soon. I would love if she does. This ho is making another bomb. So, you will be seeying Jentheho.

  • LOL

    straight to rental. Jen really needs an agent to help her get good movie roles not tabloid mag covers.

  • Interesting

    I think this has potential, especially for Dennis.

  • Tommy Boy

    @Lisa:
    When was the last time Wilson and Rudd, who’s name alone can carry a rom-com movie, carried a film with their name alone? Same thing with Vince Vaughn! Wilson, Rudd and Vaughn and often times Stiller need a name female star or a name male co-star for a film to be successful. Case in point: Along Came Polly, The Break Up and Marley and Me.

  • Tommy Boy

    @toria:

    No. Completely different. Her ex husband was a bounty hunter trying to bring her in after she skipped bail. She wasn’t kidnapped/

  • sorella

    It does sound similar to the Bounty Hunter (insert “kidnapped” for “on the run” and presto!), but without the bounty and without Gerard Butler.

    She certainly doesn’t get offered the best and quality roles does she.

  • dd

    @Interesting: yeah potential to fail

  • Bobjustbob

    Another hohum movie from a hohum actress. Her career is inching closer and closer to making a Friends movie. She is forever Rachel.

  • frisbee

    Holy eff, Denis! What the h happened to your face?! Mate, don’t even try to call it aging!

  • So boring and predictable

    Yes so boring and predictable!
    I guest, thin lips Manni fans have to put the pregnancy rumors aside, for a few more decade?

  • GRANMA IS SO OLG AND UGLY

    anistonWHORE IS A DIRTY HYPOCRITE.
    anistonWHORE’S FANS ARE STUPID WHO*RES.
    THAT’S IT.

  • Moira

    I hope someone is having a laugh at our expense. No way is Aniston a “bombshell” and her acting is so limited it is excruciating. Tarantino and Leonard must be screaming over this rumor.

  • *FILTY_ANISTON_WHORE_PANTIES*

    Aniston biggest whore ever
    JA toxic waste
    use gas mask
    use thickest rubber
    biohazzard
    filth
    all disease

  • Leathery orange granie Manni

    Manni and Dennis… Oh my gosh… My eyes … My eyes!!!

  • Sugar

    Sounds great, but who is going to play the bombshell housewife?

  • T Pain

    Wasn’t she just in a flop called “The Switch” about some guy switching her sperm?? So tacky..I think Hollywood is messing with Aniston for sh!ts and giggles.

  • alw

    where are the pictures from wanderlust premiere in los angeles today

  • ellie’

    Jen & Dennis I think I like that lots…

  • iris

    good see next movie

  • Brendan

    Thanks Ron for posting this link. http://besabella.com/2012/02/14/serena-williams-hitting-partner-sascha-bajin-gets-the-dennis-quaid-treatment/
    A friend thought I was lying when I said I saw Quaid with some broad other than his wife checking into a hotel room in Vegas a couple of years ago. Knew I should have taken a picture with my camera phone and sold it to the tabloids.

  • JL

    She looks on 30-32 here.
