Movie news: Jennifer Aniston, James Cameron, and Sarah Jessica Parker
08.03.07 by REELZ
Jennifer Aniston has signed to star in a new romantic comedy opposite one of our favorites, Steve Zahn (Reality Bites, Rescue Dawn).
Management, written and directed by Stephen Belber (The Laramie Project), is about a traveling saleswoman (Aniston) who has a fling with a hotel manager (Zahn) who then decides to follow her around the country trying to win her love. Sounds like a pretty high-profile gig. We hope this means Zahn's star is rising!
More news on James Cameron's long-awaited follow-up to Titanic. The live-action digital 3-D Avatar has added two new cast members: Michelle Rodriguez (Girlfight, Lost) and Stephen Lang (Gods and Generals, Niagara Niagara).
Rodriguez will play an ex-Marine pilot and Lang a Marine colonel who must oversee the troops on planet Pandora.
Finally, Sarah Jessica Parker has an indie flick coming out in advance of the Sex and the City movie we are all so eagerly anticipating. SJP stars as a dean at a New England college at the center of a racial hate crime investigation in Spinning Into Butter, adapted from Rebecca Gilman's play of the same name. It will premiere at next month's National Conference on Race, Reparation and Reconciliation in Atlanta.
