News: Aniston Set to Star in "What Alice Forgot" Adaptation

by Ken Miyamoto on October 6, 2015

Jennifer Aniston is set to star in TriStar’s adaptation of Liane Moriarty‘s acclaimed novel What Alice Forgot.

The novel tells the story of 29-year-old Alice, who is about to give birth to her first child. She suddenly wakes up on the floor of her gym and finds that 10 years have passed and her life is in shambles: she is getting divorced, now has three kids, is fighting with her sister and is miserable all around. Alice, still believing that she’s 29, sets out to find what went wrong with her life and how to move forward.

The film adaptation will be different from the novel, with Alice instead awakening from a head injury, discovering that she’s a single mother of two and recently divorced from the man she thought was her soulmate. She then becomes determined to reignite her past love with her ex and get her old life back, which proves far more difficult than she anticipated.

Michael Sugar, Kerry Kohansky Roberts, Steve Golin, and Rosalie Swedlin are producing for Anonymous Content, while Nicole Brown oversees for the studio. Vincent Sheehan is executive producing.

Shauna Cross wrote a previous draft, however, sources say that another writer may be approached to touch up that draft.
