08.16.07 by REELZ
Jennifer Aniston is about to be the next cast member to join in Ken Kwapis's (License to Wed, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) adaptation of He's Just Not That Into You. The former Friends star is in negotiations to play a woman in a long-term relationship with a marriage-phobic boyfriend, says The Hollywood Reporter. Filming is scheduled to start next month in LA.
Jeremy Piven (Entourage, Smokin' Aces) let slip to MTV on the Common music video shoot that he is about to star in a comedy called Don Ready. He wouldn't reveal anymore details other than that it is being produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay--which are obviously pretty juicy details.
And finally, former Nicholl fellowship winner James Mottern will make his feature directing debut with his script Trucker, about a female truck driver who has to start to take care of her estranged 11-year-old son after his father is hospitalized. The indie drama will star Michelle Monaghan (North Country, Mr. & Mrs. Smith), Nathan Fillion (Waitress, Firefly), Benjamin Bratt (Miss Congeniality, Traffic), Joey Lauren Adams (Chasing Amy, Big Daddy), and Jimmy Bennett (Evan Almighty, Poseidon), says Variety.
