Now this sounds like a good pairing. Jennifer Aniston and Jason Baseman have signed with Mandate Pictures to co-star in the studio's fertility-themed comedy The Baster.
Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman for The Baster
Blades of Glory helmers Will Speck and Josh Gordon will helm The Baster off a script by Allan Loeb. The Baster centers on a neurotic and insecure man (Bateman) who finds out his best friend (Aniston) wants to have a child through artificial insemination. He surreptitiously replaces her donor's semen with his own and is then forced to live with the secret that he is the child's real father.
Pretty good timing for the film considering that we've recently seen a woman pop up out octuplets. I continue to hope that the government sacks up and arrests her. I'm sorry, but nobody on welfare should be setup to have more kids, especially litters.
The Baster is expected to begin filming this spring.
