According to Variety, Aniston will play a therapist whose mother is in rehab for alcoholism.

She joins a strong ensemble cast that also includes Jason Schwartzman, Eugene Levy, Kathryn Hahn, Brie Larson and Cybill Shepherd, whose film career was actually launched by Bogdanovich in 1971 with The Last Picture Show.

She’s Funny That Way will mark Bogdanovich’s first cinematic feature as director since 2001’s The Cat’s Meow and is due to start shooting on location in New York in June.
