Jennifer Aniston is so fetch!
The actress, 45, is in talks to star in the upcoming comedy Mean Moms, multiple sources tell E! News. The movie is an adaptation of Rosalind Wiseman 's book Queen Bee Moms and King Pin Dads: Dealing With the Parents, Teachers, Coaches, and Counselors Who Can Make—or Break—Your Child's Future. Wiseman also wrote the book Queen Bees and Wannabes, which inspired the 2004 movie Mean Girls.
Similar to Mean Girls, Mean Moms will focus on a newcomer who struggles to find common ground with her suburban neighbors, whose sole purpose seems to be one-upping each other's parenting.
Beth McCarthy-Miller, who recently directed The Sound of Music Live, is set to direct the comedy. Adam Shankman, Jennifer Gibgot and Jill Messick are producing the project for New Line.
Though Aniston played up her girl-next-door persona during Friends in the '90s and early '00s, she's found success in recent years with edgy box office comedies like Horrible Bosses and We're the Millers. She'll next be seen on the big screen in Squirrels to the Nuts, Horrible Bosses 2 and Life of Crime .
