Jennifer Aniston May Be A Mean Mom
In New Line's competitive parenting comedy

Jennifer-Aniston-May-Be-A-Mean-Mom

It was ten years ago that Mean Girls found success mining the endless psychological cruelty of high schoolers for laughs and lessons. That was based on Rosalind Wiseman’s book and, in 2010, New Line looked to her work again, announcing Mean Moms. It’s been bubbling away in development ever since, and finally seems to be moving, with word that Jennifer Aniston is in talks.

Mean Moms, which adapts Wiseman’s tome Queen Bee Moms And King Pin Dads, is not a sequel to Girls, but explores some similar territory. If Aniston makes a deal, she’ll play a happily married mother of two who moves from a pleasant small town to the high-powered suburbs, where competitive parenting is a gladiatorial sport.

Adam 'Rock Of Ages' Shankman is on board to produce, but doesn’t appear to be directing at the moment. Aniston has certainly been on a sharp comedy run of late, with Horrible Bosses and We’re The Millers both proving successful. She’s got more comedy coming up, with a role in the Bosses sequel (out November 28) and Peter Bogdanovich’s Squirrels To The Nuts.
