Jennifer Aniston And 'Bruce Almighty' Jim Carrey[Thursday, August 1st, 2002]
Jennifer Aniston has come aboard to star opposite Jim Carrey in Universal Pictures' spiritual comedy "Bruce Almighty," reports The Hollywood Reporter.
Additionally, Morgan Freeman is in final negotiations to also star in the project, which is being directed by Tom Shadyac
The project will see Carrey star as Bruce Nolan, a television reporter in Buffalo, N.Y., who is discontent with almost everything in life despite his popularity and the love of his girlfriend, Grace (Aniston). At the end of the worst day of his life, Bruce angrily ridicules and rages against God -- and God responds. God appears in human form (Freeman) and, endowing Bruce with divine powers, challenges Bruce to take on the big job to see if he can do it any better.
Production begins Tuesday in Los Angeles.
