It’s good to be ‘Wanted’ for Plan B’s big jail tale

Aniston, Streep on board for prison pic

Jennifer Aniston and Meryl Streep are “Wanted” women.

The two have attached to Sheldon Turner’s upcoming adaptation of Kim Wozencraft’s novel “Wanted.”

Pic is being produced by Dede Gardner for Aniston and Brad Pitt’s Warner-based shingle, Plan B.

Wozencraft is a former undercover narcotics agent best known for having penned “Rush,” the novel that became MGM’s 1991 Jason Patric and Jennifer Jason Leigh pic of the same name.

In Wozencraft’s “Wanted,” a female cop (Aniston) in Texas is framed for narcotics trafficking and sent to prison. Her cellmate is a war protester (Streep) who’s renounced violence, and the two plot an escape.

No helmer is yet attached to the pic.

Turner most recently updated Par’s forthcoming remake of “The Longest Yard,” starring Adam Sandler, and is also writing a prequel to “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” for New Line Cinema.

Streep last year appeared in “Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events” and will next be seen in the Universal-distribbed “Prime,” a negative pickup from Bob Yari’s Stratus Film Co.

Aniston will next appear in Miramax’s “Derailed,” directed by Mikael Hafstrom and also starring Clive Owen, based on the James Siegel novel. She also will appear in the Ted Griffin-scripted “Rumor Has It,” about a woman who learns that her family was the inspiration for the book and film “The Graduate.”

Streep and Aniston are repped at CAA, as is Turner, who’s managed by Benderspink.
