Jennifer Aniston will star alongside Robert De Niro in Taylor Hackford’s “The Comedian” which will film early next year in New York.
De Niro plays a toxic insult comic. Aniston meets him at a wedding, and they develop a close relationship. Art Linson and Jeffrey Ross penned the script.
This will be De Niro’s second time behind the stand-up microphone following his iconic stalker/aspiring comedian role in “The King Of Comedy.”
