Here's a project that has been stuck in development hell, that we kind of figured was left for dead. In various stages of development for nearly a decade, "We're The Millers" saw folks like directors John Morris and Sean Anders, and actors Will Arnett and Steve Buscemi go through the revolving door. Last summer reports surfaced that Jason Bateman would take over the lead role, but now it looks like another casting change up is in the works.

Here's a project that has been stuck in development hell, that we kind of figured was left for dead. In various stages of development for nearly a decade, "We're The Millers" saw folks like directors John Morris and Sean Anders, and actors Will Arnett and Steve Buscemi go through the revolving door. Last summer reports surfaced that Jason Bateman would take over the lead role, but now it looks like another casting change up is in the works.

Deadline reports that Jennifer Aniston is circling the project, with Jason Sudeikis also looking to come aboard. Described as a mix between "National Lampoon's Vacation," "The Hangover" and "Horrible Bosses" (which Aniston and Sudeikis teamed on to solid success last year), the script by "Wedding Crashers" writers Bob Fisher and Steve Faber follows a low level pot dealer who decides to make one last big score. However, to get the supply he needs for the job, he puts together a fake family and herds them into an RV and heads to Mexico to pick up 1,400 pounds of marijuana. Aniston is talks to play the hooker who is hired to be the wife, while Sudeikis would be the man with the plan who pulls it all together.

Rawson Thurber ("Dodgeball") is still attached to direct, but no word if this will actually move forward. Aniston is also eyeing a heist flick written by her close pal Justin Theroux, and Sudeikis is already booked up for part of the summer shooting "Relanxious." But maybe these two will be the ingredients to get this movie finally made.
