Jennifer Aniston tunes up Goree Girls

Producing and possibly starring in a period musical

Ever since starting up Production Company Plan B with former hubby Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston has had her name attached to several projects. But while there are still a few projects she’s overseeing despite leaving the company, she’s now also out on her own as a producer and has snapped up her first project.

Aniston will produce – and maybe co-star – in Goree Girls for DreamWorks. It’ll unspool the true story of eight women locked up in Goree Prison, Texas in the ’40a who banded together to form one of the first all-female country and western acts in the US and found a huge following.

Margaret Nagle’s script is based on a Texas Monthly articled called O Sister Where Art Thou, which followed the girls’ progress to their eventual pardon. There’s no word on when it’ll start shooting, but DreamWorks is currently angling to hook a director.
