Deadline.com has announced that Jennifer Aniston will replace Olivia Wilde in Peter Bogdanovich's next film.

After a decade's absence, Bogdanovich, the director behind the cult movie The Last Picture Show (1971), will return to directing with She's Funny That Way.

The film will chart the rise to fame of a Broadway star who is haunted by her past as a prostitute. Brie Larson, who recently starred in the cinema adaptation of 21 Jump Street, will play the lead role.

The cast also features Owen Wilson as a Broadway producer who will kick-start the actress's career.

Jennifer Aniston will play a therapist whose alcoholic mother is going into detox. Olivia Wilde was previously supposed to take on the role.

Filming on the movie will start in New York in June. Peter Bogdanovich wrote the screenplay with actress Louise Stratten (Django Unchained).

Director Wes Anderson (Moonrise Kingdom) and screenwriter Noah Baumbach (Madagascar 3) will be producers.
