Aniston is in talks to join Sandler’s in-development comedy “Pretend Wife” — formerly “Holiday in Hawaii” — according to The Hollywood Reporter.
While details are being kept under wraps, the title kinda gives away the plot. We figure on Sandler somehow hiring Aniston’s character to act as his wife in order to impress some sort of authority figure.
The pressing question is: Does this mean Aniston is slumming it in a typical Sandler manchild love story? Or is Sandler using Aniston’s rather higher cachet to try his hand again at a “Punch-Drunk Love”-type highbrow romance?
Sandler’s Happy Madison company will produce.
