Fox 2000 has picked up Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson to star in Marley & Me, the adaptation of John Grogan's bestselling memoir about an incorrigible Labrador.
Jennifer Aniston, Owen Wilson for Marley & Me
Marley is the yellow lab adopted by Grogan, a columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer, and his wife. Their idea was to give them a taste of parenthood, but the dog proved to be a hyperactive handful. He wreaks havoc, gets kicked out of obedience school and gets even worse when the children begin to arrive, yet becomes an indispensable part of the family.
Fox 2000 has been racing to pull a cast together before the possible strikes. David Frankel will direct from a script currently being written by scribe Scott Frank.
