Washington, Feb 6 (ANI): Hollywood actress Jennifer Aniston has been signed on to star in fertility-themed comedy "The Baster" alongside actor Jason Bateman.
Will Speck and Josh Gordon, who previously teamed for the comedy "Blades of Glory," will helm the project based on Jeffrey Eugenides' short story "Baster," which was first published in The New Yorker.
The film revolves around a neurotic and insecure man (Bateman) who finds out his best friend (Aniston) wants to have a child through artificial insemination.
He surreptitiously replaces her donor's semen with his own and is then forced to live with the secret that he is the child's real father, reports Variety.
This is the second artificial insemination film to get the green light in recent weeks.
CBS Films is moving forward with the Jennifer Lopez starrer "Plan B."
Last year's comedy "Baby Mama," also about a fertility-challenged woman, proved to be a box-office success for Universal Pictures, earning 64.3 dollars million worldwide. (ANI)
