Jennifer Aniston will star in 'Cake', where she becomes intrigued by the death of someone in her support group while dealing with her own issues.

Jennifer Aniston has been cast in 'Cake'.

The 44-year-old actress stars as a woman who becomes intrigued by the death of someone in her support group, in a film which is being produced by Courtney Solomon in a $50 million collaboration between Chinese TV producer Shenghua Entertainment and After Dark Films, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Solomon said: "Our goal is to find great material and great talent and let them do what they do best and Shenghua has proven a great partner to make that happen.

"The formation of Cinelou Films DHJ, and this new venture with Shenghua is a unique pact which allows us to give great projects a chance to be made for the right reasons without many of the usual limitations put on indie films."

'Cake' is the first in a five movie production which will be directed by Daniel Barnz, and written by Patrick Tobin.

Aniston - who was catapulted to the spotlight in TV comedy 'Friends' - recently starred in 'We're the Millers' alongside Jason Sudeikis, Emma Roberts and Will Poulter.

Claire (Aniston) is an attorney who's survived a car crash. Now sour and scarred, her chronic back pain causes her to alienate everyone she once held dear. Aniston is very good in an intriguing role, but the story signals exactly where it's going and the film is otherwise disappointingly soft-edged and obvious.
