Jennifer Aniston and Meryl Streep will star in Sheldon Turner's upcoming adaptation of Kim Wozencraft's novel Wanted, reports Variety. The film is being produced by Dede Gardner for Aniston and Brad Pitt's Warner-based production company, Plan B. No director is yet attached to the film.
Wozencraft is a former undercover narcotics agent best known for having written "Rush," the novel that became MGM's 1991 Jason Patric and Jennifer Jason Leigh film of the same name.
In Wozencraft's Wanted, a female cop (Aniston) in Texas is framed for narcotics trafficking and sent to prison. Her cellmate is a war protester (Streep) who's renounced violence, and the two plot an escape.
