Aniston and Bateman Get Together For The Baster

Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman have signed on for the comedy The Baster, in which Bateman's character dupes Aniston's character into having his child. Hilarious! Here's more:

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.

The directors of Blades of Glory, Will Speck and Josh Gordon, will direct. Curiously, the script is adapted from a short story by Jeffrey Eugenides, who wrote the book Virgin Suicides as well as one of my all-time favorite books: Middlesex. I love Jason Bateman and will see almost anything he's in. This might end up being very funny, so I'll keep my mind open. You?

well i think that it could be interesting, however f'd up that it is. i would be SO mad if a friend did that to me - it's really hard to think that your kid is from your friend, when you kind of wanted to be anonymous about it all.

I'm not so sure about the description, but if Michael Bluth is in, I'm in. The movies need more neurotic characters.

If this movie is at all how I picture it in my head from reading the description, then Jason Bateman and Jennifer Aniston seem like really good casting choices.

As soon as I saw Jason Bateman's name I was interested! I also like Jennifer Aniston. If this short story it is based on is as good as the author's others work this may have some real potential!

I was about to get really cranky about this movie b/c I figured it was the same old "woman is desperate to have baby, dupes man," but then I realized it was the dude being all insecure and sneaky, so I think I'm down with it now.
