Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman Reunite for 'Office Christmas Party'

Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman Reunite for 'Office Christmas Party'
Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman, who shared the big screen in the 2010 comedy The Switch before reuniting in both Horrible Bosses and Horrible Bosses 2, are set to reunite once again with a new comedy project entitled Office Christmas Party. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that T.J. Miller and Kate McKinnon have also signed on to star in unspecified roles. This project has been in development for nearly six years, when it was first set up by The Switch directors Will Speck and Josh Gordon, but now it looks like it's finally moving forward.

We first reported on the project back in August 2010, when Will Speck and Josh Gordon signed on to direct a then-untitled holiday comedy that was being written by The Hangover writing team of Jon Lucas and Scott Moore. A number of writers and actors have been attached since then, but the most recent draft was written by

Review: She’s Funny That Way

This is the Pure Movies review of She's Funny That Way, directed by Peter Bogdanovich and starring Imogen Poots, Owen Wilson, Jennifer Aniston, Rhys Ifans and Will Forte. Reviewed by Dr. Garth Twa. Let’s not dwell on the bad stuff. It’s a good thing to share a planet with Peter Bogdanovich. He’s made it slightly better. He was an integral part of that bubble of filmmaking— late ‘60s, early ‘70s—when American films became an art form, comparable to great American novels, comparable to the redefinition of drama by the post-war playwrights. (Sort of like what cable television is doing now.) In the late 1960s the old, classic studios were moribund: anti-trust violations had decimated the monopolistic structure of Hollywood and television had hacked the audience in half almost overnight. Also, the studios were pretty much finished after the disintegration of the Star System, where studios outright

Peter Bogdanovich on Assembling an All-Star Cast and Returning to NYC for 'She's Funny That Way'

Peter Bogdanovich on Assembling an All-Star Cast and Returning to NYC for 'She's Funny That Way'
Read More: Watch: Dysfunctional Relationships Explode in Owen Wilson, Jennifer Aniston Comedy 'She's Funny That Way' After spending his first 25 years in New York, Peter Bogdanovich moved to Los Angeles, where he was based when  he directed "The Last Picture Show," "Paper Moon" and other '70's Americana classics. But Bogdanovich has always been a true New Yorker at heart. He returns to that city as a setting in his latest screwball comedy, "She's Funny That Way," starring Owen Wilson, Imogen Poots and Jennifer Aniston (and featuring cameos by Graydon Carter, among others). The film was originally titled "Squirrels to the Nuts" after a line from the 1946 Ernst Lubitsch romance, "Cluny Brown," which should provide a good taste of what the finished product plays like for those familiar with Lubitsch's fast-talking comedies. Bogdanovich joined Indiewire over the phone from Los Angeles about his new movie and the key contributions of.

Justin Theroux on Married Life With Jennifer Aniston: "It Does Feel Different"

  • TooFab
Sounds like Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston are enjoying every second of newlywed bliss!  "The Leftovers" star briefly opened up about married life while promoting Season 2 of his hit show with People on Wednesday.  When asked about his new role as a husband, the sexy actor couldn't help but gush about his marriage. "It does feel different," he said about being a married man. "I'm very happy."  "It's nice to be able to look down and see a new piece of jewelry on my finger," he added.  The cute couple said "I do" earlier this month in front of their closest family and friends at their Bel Air home. Theroux and Aniston were joined by around 70 guests at the celebration, which took place in their sprawling backyard.  Justin and Jen spent their honeymoon in Bora Bora following their intimate nuptials and Theroux has since returned to the set of the HBO series in Austin,

Review: She's Funny That Way Puts The Fun In Funny

Peter Bogdanovich's screwball sensibilities thankfully do not get the better of him in the absurd and kinetic She's Funny That Way. The film follows the various dramas, loves and lusts of the players of a theater production in New York, focusing on the romance and quirky scenarios that occur outside the play itself. These moments become slightly ribald and surreal set-pieces; each situation building itself up for a wrong time, wrong place cataclysm that has you in stitches at the best of times.Owen Wilson leads the pack as Arnold Albertson, a playwright with an uncanny knack for assuaging his womanizing guilt. His latest conquest sees him arrive in New York with cast and crew, including famous heartthrob and lead actor for the play Seth...

Review: 'No Escape' Starring Owen Wilson, Lake Bell, And Pierce Brosnan

A loving father transforms into a ruthless survivalist in order to save his family from hordes of murderous pursuers in “No Escape,” a preposterous, monotonous action saga primarily notable for boasting a miscast lead and advancing a less-than-tolerant geopolitical fantasy. To say John Erick Dowdle’s film takes a negative view of its Southeast Asian setting would be an understatement, to the point that it doesn’t even explicitly denote where its action is taking place. Rather, it keeps such specifics vague until its finale, at which time it becomes slightly more obvious that Cambodia is the country being depicted as a dilapidated hellhole populated by rampaging rebels who—having staged a coup against a militaristic leader in league with European leaders—are on the lookout for Westerners, whom they view as exploiting invaders and seek to hack up with machetes.

Owen Wilson, Blindfolded, Nuzzles Cotton Candy and a Sheep on The Late Late Show

Owen Wilson, Blindfolded, Nuzzles Cotton Candy and a Sheep on The Late Late Show
Owen Wilson employed his famously crooked nose to great effect Wednesday, using it to correctly suss out the identity of a barnyard animal, while blindfolded, in a spirited game of "Nuzzle Whaaa???" on The Late Late Show.

"Nuzzle Whaaa???", which host James Corden plays with guests now and then, involves donning a blindfold and nuzzling one's face into random objects to determine what they are.

The No Escape and She's Funny That Way star, 46, played with teammate Natasha Leggero against Corden and Johnny Knoxville. After splitting the first two rounds (in which he failed to identify cotton candy), Wilson stepped

Jennifer Aniston Reveals How She Kept Her Wedding Secret: 'Where There Is a Will, There Is a Way'
How do you keep one of the year's biggest Hollywood weddings a total secret? You just have to want it that badly.

"Where there is a will, there is a way," Jennifer Aniston said Thursday on Good Morning America in her first televised interview since tying the knot Aug. 5 with Justin Theroux.

It helped, of course, that it was positioned as a birthday party for her fiancé.

"And it was! That was true," Aniston said. (Well, sort of. Theroux celebrated his birthday more traditionally on the honeymoon with his wife and their friends.)

The actress, 46, seemed reluctant to open up further about the nuptials,

Review: Star-Studded Screwball Comedy 'She's Funny That Way' Is A Candy Floss Trifle With No Nutritional Value

This is a reprint of our review from the 2014 Venice Film Festival. If you've so much as read the headline of this review, you're probably already thinking too hard about Peter Bogdanovich's star-studded "She's Funny That Way," which is but a trifle, designed to melt in your mouth like candy floss. In fact, it goes out of its way to avoid anything that even faintly smacks of realism or meaningfulness; it just wants you to like it. Which means, of course, that knives are being sharpened. Nothing spurs critical disdain quicker than a display of eagerness to please. Odd that along with edgy, ultraviolent dramas and dense, arty auteurist exercises, one of the most divisive of genres, especially in a cinephile crowd such as here in Venice, should be the screwball comedy. Which is the long way to say that your mileage on the manic, contrived and coincidence-strewn "She's Funny That Way" may vary,
