AMERICAN BEAUTY star Mena Suvari has inked a deal to play JENNIFER ANISTON's sister in an upcoming film project.

The stunning blonde will play Annie in the as-yet-untitled film, which has been inspired by the DUSTIN HOFFMAN-starring classic The Graduate, whose wedding reunites all the characters.

In the film, which will be directed by MATCHSTICK MEN writer Ted Griffin from his own script, Aniston's character discovers her family was the inspiration for the Graduate.

Other stars already signed include SHIRLEY MaCLAINE, Kevin Costner, MARK RUFFALO and Charlie Hunnam.
