Jennifer Aniston Switches Genres?

Jennifer Aniston plans to leave romantic comedies.

The 41-year-old actress reportedly believes she needs to look into other film work after her latest movie 'The Switch' starring Jason Bateman took only $8.4 million on its opening weekend in the US.

A film insider said: "Jen thinks she's outgrown these types of movies. They were cute and audiences loved them years ago, but that's not what they want to see - or, at least, not with Jen.

"She kind of knew this was coming, but she didn't expect 'The Switch' to do that badly at the box office."

She now plans to go into directing, working on a number of serious projects.

The source added to "Jen will direct 'Counter-Clockwise', a drama about a psychologist who conducts an experiment on reversing the aging process by making her patients believe they are younger.

"And she'll co-star and direct 'Goree Girls', a drama musical - something she's never done. That film is based on a true story from the 1940s about a group of incarcerated female country-and-western performers. So really, there are options for her."

Following her role in 'The Switch', Jennifer will next be seen in 'Just Go With It' with Nicole Kidman and Adam Sandler, due for release in February 2011.
