Jennifer Aniston In Talks To Star In ‘What Alice Forgot’ For TriStar

Mike Fleming Jr

Jennifer Aniston is in talks star in What Alice Forgot, the TriStar Pictures adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s bestselling novel. Shauna Cross wrote the script.

When Sony-based TriStar acquired Moriarty’s book in July 2014, it had David Frankel attached to direct. That job now is open.

Aniston would play Alice, who suffers a head injury and wakes up thinking she’s her 25-year-old self — in love with her husband and career — only to realize her 40-year-old life is very different than what she had hoped it would be.

Anonymous Content’s Kerry Kohansky-Roberts is producing with Steve Golin, and Vincent Sheehan in the executive producer. Nicole Brown is overseeing for TriStar.
