Aniston joins Owen in thriller 'Derailed'

Jennifer Aniston is set to star in “Derailed,” Miramax Films’ adaptation of the James Siegel novel.

Aniston joins “King Arthur” star Clive Owen in the thriller about an ad exec whose life takes a harrowing turn when he misses his usual morning train to the office.

Swedish helmer Mikael Hafstrom (“Evil”) makes his English-language debut with the film, scripted by Stuart Beattie (“Collateral”). Lorenzo Di Bonaventura is producing.

“Derailed” was moved toward the starting line by Harvey Weinstein and is being overseen by Miramax’s Jon Gordon and Jennifer Wachtell.

Pic begins shooting in September in London and Chicago. Aniston will move to it almost immediately after she wraps the untitled Warner Bros. comedy, written and directed by “Ocean’s Eleven” scribe Ted Griffin, that loosely follows the storyline of “The Graduate.”

“Derailed” is the only film Miramax has firmly scheduled to be put into production through the early part of the fall, as Hollywood awaits word on whether co-chairmen Harvey and Bob Weinstein will remain in the Disney fold.
