Thesps circle New Line's workplace comedy

Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman, Colin Farrell and Charlie Day are in talks to star in New Line’s long-in-development workplace comedy “Horrible Bosses.”

Studio hopes to shoot “Bosses” this summer in Los Angeles. Project was set up in early 2005 after New Line snapped up Michael Markowitz’s spec script for mid-six figures, with Brett Ratner and Jay Stern producing.

Aniston was most recently seen with Gerard Butler in Sony’s comedy “The Bounty Hunter.” She and Bateman co-star in romantic comedy “The Switch” for Miramax.

Farrell and Marion Cotillard are set to star in David Cronenberg’s “Cosmopolis,” an adaptation of Don DeLillo’s novel.

Day’s in “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” and will be seen in New Line’s romantic comedy “Going the Distance.”
