Whoever thinks Jennifer Aniston is a rom-com only kind of gal needs to pause everything they're doing and read this right now.
Justin Theroux's fiancée will be playing Mickey Dawson, the wife of a wealthy Detroit developer who finds herself kidnapped for ransom money, in Daniel Schetcher's Life Of Crime.
The ex-cons in charge of the crime are Ordell Robbie (Yasiin Bay) and Louis Gara (John Hawkes). But it's Mark Boone Junior's character, Richard, who attempts to rape Mickey in a scene where her bra is ripped off before she kicks him off her and escapes with the help of Louis.
A production source reveals Jennifer wanted to make it as authentic as possible:
"Being the level of actor that she is you would imagine that she would be closed off, but she was actually very giving and brave in the scene. She wanted to get it right."
Did you just feel those shivers too??
We think this might be the beginning of a new era for Jenny A!
Scheduled to roll September 14, critics and audience members will be able to view the film on the closing night of the Toronto International Film Festival.
Fingers crossed for ya, gurl!
