After working together in 1998’s “The Object of My Affection,” Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston will reunite onscreen for “WanderLust.” The film will be produced by Judd Apatow, and Rudd will also be onboard as writer and producer.
David Wain, who worked with Rudd on “Role Models,” will direct the movie, which centers on a couple who take refuge at a commune after they lose all their money, according to Variety. Rudd will help with the script, which will be penned by Wain and Ken Marino.
Apatow recently told MTV News about the project, saying, “I’m producing a movie that Paul Rudd’s in that’s shooting in the fall, which David Wain wrote with Ken Marino, and they’re going to announce that soon.”
In other Aniston movie news, she will re-team with her “The Switch” co-star Jason Bateman for the movie “Horrible Bosses.” Also onboard for the film are Colin Farrell and Charlie Day. The film centers on “three friends who team up to murder their overbearing bosses with disastrous results.” Seth Gordon, who directed “Four Christmases,” will direct the movie.
But that’s not all for the very busy Aniston. Next up, the actress, who appeared in “The Bounty Hunter” earlier this year and who is set to release the aforementioned “Switch” later this year, will stretch her singing muscles in the flick “Goree Girls.”
“We’re still doing it, it’s going through a rewrite and it should be happening sometime next year,” Aniston told MTV News recently about the movie. Based on a true story, the film is about a group of 1940s female prison inmates who start a country-western band. “I’m still trying to figure out where in my schedule to find its little spot.”
