Praise be to the Gods above! Someone heard my prayer and has answered it. At least in the developmental stage. and who would have thought it would come from Rachel Green herself. Jennifer Aniston currently working her
fingers to the bone on a period musical at DreamWorks titled "Goree Girls."
From what I understand she is planning to produce and, if the singing lessons go well, may even star.
From the Hollywood Reporter:
"The project is based on a true story about a group of eight women serving time in Texas' Goree Prison during the 1940s who formed one of the first all-female country and western acts in the country and captured the hearts of millions of fans in the process.
Aniston and her producing partner Kristin Hahn optioned Skip Hollandsworth's May 2003 article in Texas Monthly titled "O Sister Where Art Thou," which recounted the story of the women, who eventually were pardoned.
Margaret Nagle, who wrote Brad Silberling's upcoming "The Lost Boys of the Sudan," is adapting. The studio is out to directors."
Hmm.....give me a moment to think about that. Prison, Women, Musical, Period, in need of a resurgence. Why not get ole Alan Parker? He has a knack for the period musicals, and would be great to see him in a genre he likes. Just think of it as Prisoner Cell Block 'H' with high kicks!
I have total faith in my Jenny-Boo being able to pull this off. Yes I like her and I am a fan, and she can coast on her charisma as long as she wants.
We all know that underneath there is a very talented actress waiting to emerge, perhaps this will be the film to uncover it.
