‘Friend’ going ‘Metal’?

Aniston may join Wahlberg in Herek pic

“Friends” star Jennifer Aniston may test her mettle with heavy metal: She is in talks to star opposite Mark Wahlberg in Warner Bros.’ and Maysville Prods.’ feature film, “Metal God.”

Pic will be helmed by Stephen Herek (“Mr. Holland’s Opus”) and produced by Toby Jaffe, Robert Lawrence and George Clooney (Daily Variety, Oct. 22).

“Metal God” is slated to begin production early next year. Aniston, who has been circling several feature projects but has not committed to any of them, will be available for film productions when “Friends” goes on hiatus at the end of May.

“Metal God,” based on the true tale of an office supply salesman who played in a cover band before joining a heavy-metal band, was penned by John Stockwell and rewritten by Callie Khouri (“Thelma and Louise”).

Aniston has appeared in the films “Picture Perfect,” ” ‘Til There Was You” and “The Object of My Affection.” She also lent her voice for the Warner Bros.’ animated film “The Iron Giant.”

Aniston is repped by CAA.
