I guess after Mr. and Mrs. Smith you can make a comedy out of anything. Take for instance the upcoming laffer that Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler are in talks to join. Combining the job of being a bounty hunter with the comedy genre, the film could feature endless possibilities.
Jennifer Aniston, Gerard Butler for Bounty Hunter Comedy
The untitled comedy will be directed by Andy Tennant (Hitch) off a script by Sarah Thorp. the film centers on a bounty hunter (Butler) hired to retrieve his ex-wife (Aniston), who has skipped bail.
Columbia Pictures is looking to a May start date.
Aniston and Butler have a couple similar comedies coming our way shortly. Jennifer Aniston is part of an ensemble cast for the romantic comedy He's Just Not That Into You while Butler learns his own she-advice with Katherine Heigl in The Ugly Truth.
