Aniston To Play Ex On The Run In Mr & Mrs Smith Copycat
Jennifer Aniston is set to send movie gossips into overdrive after signing up to make a new action thriller similar to the film that ended her marriage to Brad Pitt.
And her co-star is British actor Gerard Butler, who has been romantically linked to the actress.
In Bounty Hunter, Aniston plays a journalist on the run from her hitman ex-husband after he's instructed to kill her.
She says, "She's a witness to a murder, and the bounty hunter - her ex-husband (Butler) - is given her as a hit."
Ironically, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie played rival assassins in Mr & Mrs Smith - the film that brought the couple together and partly resulted in Pitt and Aniston's split.
In that film, Pitt and Jolie try to kill each other before teaming up to defeat the bad guys.
