Jennifer Aniston Off To Convention
She's joining the sci-fi comedy

Jennifer Aniston

Last May, we reported on quirky sci-fi project Convention, which had locked in Ben Kingsley and Safety Not Guaranteed’s Mark Duplass to co-star. Even back then, director Justin Reardon was hoping to add Jennifer Aniston to the cast and, after months of courting and haggling, he’s secured her.

Reardon, working from a script by Christopher Painter, is bringing to the life the story of a man (Duplass) who invents a five-sided box. While it defies the laws of physics and seems set to revolutionize the storage market, there’s just one little issue: every time he creates the extra fold for one of his boxes, he tears a hole in the fabric of the universe.

Still, that doesn’t stop him bringing it, along with his sister (Aniston) to a storage convention, where it attracts the attention of a rival manufacturer (Kingsley).

K5 International is touting rights to the film at the European Film Market, and Aniston’s name should be a useful selling point. She’ll next be seen on screen in pot comedy We’re The Millers (which arrives on August 23) and is at work on an untitled, Elmore Leonard-fuelled prequel to Jackie Brown.
