Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman will star as best friends in the romantic comedy The Basters for Mandate Pictures. The film will shoot in New York this spring and was adapted from a short story that appeared in The New Yorker. Blades of Glory directors Will Speck and Josh Gordon are attached to direct The Basters.
The film's quirky plot concerns Aniston and Bateman, who will portray Kassie and Wally. When Kassie opts to have a baby via artificial insemination, Wally sneakily switches out the donor sperm with his own in order to father his best friend's child. Aniston will also executive produce the film through her recently formed Echo Films company.
