Jennifer Aniston, of course best known for her role as Rachel in Friends, has been doing brilliantly with her movie career in the years since the end of that iconic TV show, taking roles in much-talked about films Marley & Me, The Break-Up, Horrible Bosses, and the upcoming Wanderlust, opposite her Friends co-star, Paul Rudd.

THR report that she’s now boarded her next project, the dramedy Miss You Already, and as if that wasn’t good news enough, Entertainment One has already pre-bought the UK, Australian, and Canadian rights to the film at the European Film Market this past weekend.

The film follows,

“two lifelong friends whose friendship falls apart when one gets pregnant and the other becomes ill.”

Paul Andrew Williams will be directing from a script he co-wrote with British actress-writer-producer Morwenna Banks. Williams is best known for feature debut with London to Brighton, and who moves into the drama-comedy drama with his next film, Song for Marion, due out this year, which will star Gemma Arterton, Vanessa Redgrave, and Christopher Eccleston. Clearly a director to be keeping an eye on.

The film is set to go before cameras this summer, so hopefully we’ll have more news to bring you soon about the project, including who’ll be cast opposite Aniston as the co-lead. With Aniston now attached, the project should be able to secure US distribution too, so if you’re reading this in the US, you can no doubt rest fairly soundly in the assurance that you’ll be seeing this film on the big screen as well, hopefully around this time next year.
