Jennifer Aniston to Produce Prison Musical

The news:
Jennifer Aniston will produce Goree Girls, a 1940s musical about singing female prisoners.

Come again?
You read correctly. Reuters has details:

Goree Girls revolves around eight women at Texas' Goree Prison during the 1940s who formed one of the first all-female country and western acts in the country and captured the hearts of millions of fans in the process.

Craziest part:
Aniston may star in the movie. Singing. Hey, maybe she'll surprise me, like Renee Zellweger did playing a singing prisoner in Chicago.

My prediction:
I'm envisioning something like A League of Their Own, just set in a prison. And, you know, a musical.

Exactly, I never imagined Renee Zellweger to sing but she did it DAMN well. As for Jen, I have NO DOUBT whatsoever that she will be absolutely fabulous there, making us love her even more.

I'm too confused to know what to do. Maybe the project will get sidelined for a long time. If Aniston sings in it, I might find it hard to take it seriously. But we'll wait and see...

i am not a hater, however, this girl is just bland. every role she plays is so one-dimensional just like rachel.... never heard her sing, maybe that's where her talent lies...

Who will believe her as a prisoner..what crime would she have commited? murder? Oh well.. good luck to her..she needs a good movie that she claim the success of for herself and not because of a popular male actor being the draw (stiller, vaughn,carrey) a female prision movie takes care of that! Good luck to Jen.. hope it is a blockbuster.

True, this could turn out rather well-- but it does sound a bit off to say the least! At least she is out there doing something!

I tend not to judge things as bad career moves until I see them for myself.

This isn't what I thought at first. Its a musical because its about prisoners that start a group. It could be interesting. I don't think its such a bad move, people always say she's typecast, at least this is different.

I love this line: I'm envisioning A League of Their Own. In a prison. :ROTFL: That's hilarious! It could either be interesting or bomb completely, depending on who's in it!
