Aniston Sets Sights On Non-Comedy Movie Roles

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Actress Jennifer Aniston says some non-comedy movie projects are in her future.

The actress says she is developing a film based on the true story of an all-female country-western band that formed at a Texas prison in the 1940s.

Aniston says the band was “sort of the Dixie Chicks of their time.”

No production or release dates have been set for the project, tentatively titled “The Goree Girls.”

Aniston has recently starred in a string of romantic comedies such as “Just Go With It.” Another, more serious project for the actress, tentatively called “Counterclockwise,” may focus on the studies of Ellen Langer, a renowned Harvard psychology professor.

Aniston was in Mexico City on Thursday to promote her new perfume, which bears her name.
