TEAM­ING UP ONCE AGAIN

THE EXES COME TO­GETHER TO MAKE THE NEXT BIG BLOCK­BUSTER — WILL IT BE BASED ON THEIR RE­LA­TION­SHIP?

Star (USA) - - Dish -

Brad Pitt and Jen­nifer Anis­ton are spend­ing more and more time to­gether now that they’re both sin­gle — but this time, it’s be­cause they’re in talks to work to­gether on a movie project. And the con­tent might sur­prise friends, fam­ily and fans. “Jen and Brad have been toy­ing with the idea of costar­ring in a film loosely based on their own love story and the sub­se­quent breakup,” says an in­dus­try in­sider. “The only worry is that it’s sure to reopen old wounds, which Jen in par­tic­u­lar isn’t sure she’s ready for. Brad is ca­jol­ing her to do it though — he thinks it’ll be cathar­tic for both of them.” The idea of the for­mer cou­ple, who were mar­ried from 2000 to 2005, work­ing to­gether on a film isn’t too far­fetched. In 2001, the Friends alum, 50, and the Ad As­tra star, 55, founded Plan B, a pro­duc­tion com­pany; but af­ter their split, Brad be­came the sole owner. “Jen was heav­ily in­volved in Plan B be­fore the di­vorce, and there are some movies from back then that could be res­ur­rected,” says the source. “But there are a lot of new scripts and pitches com­ing in too, so Jen is help­ing Brad go through them and fig­ure out what they can both work on.” They may have al­ready found the per­fect project. Ear­lier this year, Brad and Jen were both at Sony Pic­tures Stu­dios in Los An­ge­les, where they were care­ful to leave out of dif­fer­ent ex­its to avoid be­ing seen to­gether. In fact, the ac­tor waited in his car for 20 min­utes for his ex to show up be­fore walk­ing in.

The time has never been bet­ter for Jen and Brad to merge pro­fes­sion­ally, now that they have more free time fol­low­ing their re­spec­tive splits from Justin Theroux and An­gelina Jolie. But de­spite what many will think, their part­ner­ship wouldn’t be about re­venge — it would be about com­bin­ing their tal­ents and mak­ing money. “This has been in the works for a while,” in­sists the in­for­mant. “They’re deadly se­ri­ous about find­ing the per­fect role, or roles, that ap­peal to both of them.”
