Aniston will play one half of an over-scheduled, over-burdened suburban couple who go to great lengths to try to recapture the fun of their youth.
Sophie Goodhart wrote the script and is attached to direct the untitled project, which is aiming for an R-rating. It comes in the wake of STX’s biggest hit, Bad Moms, which has a holiday-themed sequel coming to theaters this November.
Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell will produce the movie via their Safehouse Pictures banner (which produced My Blind Brother), while Matt Schwartz and Douglas Banker will serve as executive producers. Sam Brown will oversee the project for STX along with the company’s Drew Simon and Jeannette Francis.
STX is already in business with Aniston, who is attached to star opposite Jason Bateman in the comedy Significant Other, which is in development at the studio. The duo previously worked together on Horrible Bosses and last year’s Office Christmas Party.
