The film is directed by Peter Bogdanovich, and is the first comedy feature from the Oscar-nominated director in 14 years.
She's Funny That Way features the story of a married Broadway director (Wilson), who falls for a prostitute-turned-actress and tries to help her advance her career.
Aniston has recently responded to an Oscars snub for her performance in Cake, saying that she was amazed at talk of a nomination before the film was even released.
Meanwhile, Wilson can currently be seen in the third and final film in the Night At The Museum series. »
The director of such classics as The Last Picture Show and Paper Moon is finally making a return after 14 years of absence from features, but after watching the trailer for She’s Funny That Way, I wonder if it’s anything to celebrate. Peter Bogdanovich has been keeping plenty busy over the past decade and a half, doing a little more acting, some hosting duties on TCM, maintaining a blog at Indiewire and helming some TV movies, namely biopics about Natalie Wood and Pete Rose, and a documentary on Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. But his last true picture show, as far as a theatrical narrative release, was the 2001 historically inspired jazz-age farce The Cat’s Meow. For his comeback, Bogdanovich has written another wild comedy, this time with ex-wife Louise Stratten, and he’s corralled a very impressive cast, as someone of his background can easily do. Imogen Poots stars as a high-class prostitute-turned-Broadway star who »

When you pack Owen Wilson, Imogen Poots, Jennifer Aniston, Will Forte, Kathryn Hahn, Lucy Punch, Debi Mazar, Rhys Ifans, Cybill Shepherd, Colleen Camp, Illeana Douglas and Tatum O’Neal in the same movie, things are bound to get a little hairy, but that's just the right tempo Peter Bogdanovich was going for in "She's Funny That Way." And the first trailer for the star-studded, screwball comedy has arrived. The story revolves around call girl/aspiring actress Isabelle Patterson who has a one night stand with married-with-kids Broadway director Albert. But it gets far more complicated for Albert when Isabelle shows up for an audition for this latest play, which also happens to star his current wife. The plot also includes private eyes, therapists, and no shortage of tangled threads. The result? Well, we called it "manufactured, sweet and unpretentious" though it contains "next to no nutritional value." "She's Funny That Way" arrives on April. »

Legendary director Peter Bogdanovich returns with the new dramatic comedy She's Funny That Way. The first trailer has arrived, and it brings a star studded cast that includes Owen Wilson, Jennifer Aniston, Imogen Poots, Quentin Tarantino, Lucy Punch, Kathryn Hahn, Rhys Ifans, Will Forte and Debi Mazar.
She's Funny That Way follows a married Broadway director named Arnold (Owen Wilson) who falls for prostitute-turned-actress named Izzy (Imogen Poots) and tries to help advance her career. Along for the ride is Izzy's therapist Jane, Jane's husband and and Arnold's wife. Its sure to be one wild ride that fits right in with such Peter Bogdanovich classics as Paper Moon and What's Up Doc?
If She's Funny That Way looks familiar to Peter Bogdanovich enthusiasts, it's because the director originally set out to make the movie in the late 90s. It would have reunited him with his The Last Picture Show leading »
