Branching into such an unusual area for her in genre filmmaking, Jennifer Aniston is about to produce a period musical feature for DreamWorks Pictures entitled "Goree Girls" which she is also eyeing as a potential starring vehicle.
Project is based on a true life account of a group of eight women who served jail time in Texas' Goree Prison during the 1940s. The troupe became one of the first all-female country and western acts in the States who successfully made their way to capture the hearts of million people in their musical journey.
Producing alongside her partner Kristin Hahn, Aniston is likely to develop the movie based on "O Sister Where Art Thou", a Texas Monthly article about the women written by Skip Hollandsworth of which rights she has satisfyingly optioned. While a director is still in search, it is learned that Berkeley-born actress/screenwriter Margaret Nagle has been tapped to work on the script.
