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?
