Variety reports that Jennifer Aniston has signed to star in Goree Girls, a film about the Goree All Girl String Band, a country music group made up of inmates at a Texas prison. They had their own popular 1940s-era radio show despite the fact that the members were female felons serving time for robbery, murder and cattle rustling. The screenplay is based on a 2003 Texas Monthly article by Skip Hollandsworth, who wrote about the eight women who formed one of the first all-girl Country & Western acts in the country. They became a hit with the public and were eventually pardoned. Michael Sucsy, who directed HBO’s Emmy-nominated Grey Gardens, will make his feature directorial debut with the film. Aniston will also serve as a producer. Goree Girls is now slated to begin production in January 2010.
