Actresses Julia Roberts and Jennifer Aniston have signed on to star in a body-swap comedy feature at Amazon, from Palm Springs filmmaker Max Barbakow. Amazon landed the film after a bidding war between several studios and streamers. Barbakow will write and direct the movie, which is backed by Margot Robbie’s production company LuckyChap Entertainment.
While the stars and filmmaker are set, the title and description of the film are remaining under wraps. Roberts and Aniston previously co-starred in the 2016 comedy Mother’s Day.
Star-driven comedies like Roberts’ Ticket to Paradise and Sandra Bullock’s The Lost City have been huge hits with the fans, so this movie is a shoe-in. I know I am excited to see these two funny women bring this movie to the screen. We will let you know as the project develops.
