Jennifer Aniston is in talks star in What Alice Forgot, the TriStar Pictures adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s bestselling novel. Shauna Cross wrote the script.

When Sony-based TriStar acquired Moriarty’s book in July 2014, it had David Frankel attached to direct. That job now is open.

Aniston would play Alice, who suffers a head injury and wakes up thinking she’s her 25-year-old self — in love with her husband and career — only to realize her 40-year-old life is very different than what she had hoped it would be.

Anonymous Content’s Kerry Kohansky-Roberts is producing with Steve Golin, and Vincent Sheehan in the executive producer. Nicole Brown is overseeing for TriStar.
