What is it about Berlin and Jennifer Aniston? This is the third project being sold here at the EFM that involves the actress (the other two are Convention and an untitled Elmore Leonard project that’s currently shooting.) Red Granite International is handling international sales on She’s Funny That Way which also stars Owen Wilson, Jason Schwartzman, Cybil Shepherd, Eugene Levy, Kathryn Hahn and Brie Larson. Peter Bogdanovich is directing from a screenplay he wrote with Louise Stratten. Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach are producing.
The film centers on a married Broadway director (Wilson) who falls for a prostitute-turned-actress and works to help her advance her career. Aniston will play a therapist whose mother is in rehab for alcoholism. Principal photography is set to start in June in New York City. Aniston is repped by CAA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
