Jennifer Aniston is one of the ‘Girls’

“Grey Gardens” director Michael Sucsy will make his feature directorial debut on “Goree Girls,” with Jennifer Aniston headlining the true story of an all-female country band in a Texas prison in the 1940s.

According to Variety, the project will begin production in January, financed by Overnight Productions. Overnight’s Rick Schwartz and Aaron Kaufman have joined Aniston and her Echo Films partner Kristin Hahn as producers.

Overnight made a deal with DreamWorks to take the picture out of turnaround.

In “Goree Girls,” Sucsy will polish the most recent draft by John Lee Hancock, who polished an original by Margaret Nagle based on a 2003 Texas Monthly article by Skip Hollandsworth. His story was about the eight women who formed one of the first all-girl C&W acts in the country, became a public favorite and were eventually pardoned.
