Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis have both been tipped to star in the forthcoming drug-dealing comedy We're The Millers. The movie has been in the pipeline for a number of years now but an ever-changing roster of directors and actors has meant that it never quite got off the ground. Aniston and Sudeikis are now chatting to New Line about possibly starring in the movie though, the Hollywood Reporter reported on Monday (April 9, 2012).
According to the report, Rawson Marshall Thurber is likely to direct the comedy, which was written by Bob Fisher and Steve Faber of Wedding Crashers fame. The plot of the movie centres around "a drug dealer who creates a fake family to help him pull off one last job that entails bringing 1,400 pounds of marijuana from Mexico into the U.S." It would seem that Aniston was presented with an offer some weeks ago, but has not yet agreed to commit to the film. "The greenlight likely is dependent on her deal closing," Hollywood Reporter notes.
