We’ve got a couple of casting stories to share this afternoon.  First up, Jennifer Aniston has joined the large cast of director Peter Bogdanovich’s (The Last Picture Show) upcoming film She’s Funny That Way (previously referred to as Squirrels to the Nuts).  The film stars Brie Larson as a hooker-turned-Broadway-thesp and follows the recurring intersection between these two facets of her life.  Owen Wilson plays a married Broadway director who falls for Larson’s character, and The Wrap reports that Aniston has signed on to play a therapist with a mother in rehab for alcoholism.

Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach are producing, and the impressive ensemble cast also includes Jason Schwartzman, Kathryn Hahn, Eugene Levy, and Cybil Shepherd.  Production is set to get underway in New York City in June.  Hit the jump for casting news regarding Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt’s next film.
