Jennifer Aniston To Star In New Comedy For STXfilms

Looks like Jennifer Aniston has a friend in STXfilms. 

Per The Hollywood Reporter, Aniston is in negotiations to lead a currently untitled comedy in development at STXfilms. The project, which is set in suburban America, is written and directed by Sophie Goodhart. Goodhart is known for her work on the Adam Scott and Nick Kroll-led comedy flick My Blind Brother.

Though the upcoming film doesn't yet have a title, we do know that it will center around an "over-scheduled and over-burdened suburban couple who go to great lengths to try to recapture the fun of their youth" and is expected to be R-rated. 

STXfilms has found past success with Bad Moms, which featured a stellar ensemble cast including Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn, Jay Hernandez, Annie Mumolo, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Christina Applegate. The film earned a cool $113 million USD in the domestic box office, and it looks like the studio is aiming for the same kind of financial pull. Additionally, it appears that Bad Moms and this project are similar in narrative and tone, as both deal with adults behaving quite badly. 

Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell are set to produce, with Matt Schwartz and Douglas Banker sitting in the executive producers' chairs. 

This will be Aniston's second comedy pic with STXfilms, as she's currently developing Significant Other with the studio. That project is set to feature Aniston and Jason Bateman in the lead roles. 

Aniston last popped up on the silver screen in Office Christmas Party, and is best known for her work as Rachel Green on the well-loved comedy series Friends
