Fox 2000 has an offer out to Jennifer Aniston to star in DARE ME, and have their eyes on the young and talented Saoirse Ronan to join her.
Megan Abbott is adapting her own novel, which centers on a cheerleader who finds herself torn when her new cheer coach begins giving her the attention and power normally reserved for her best friend, the team’s cheer captain, creating a rift in the team in the lead-up to a regional competition. If she takes the offer, Aniston would play Colette French, the new, strict cheer coach who takes an immediate liking to Addy, the film’s protagonist, who would be played by Ronan if talks progress. Natalie Portman has previously been mentioned for a role in the film, and although her character specifics aren’t known, it can be assumed it was for the role of Colette. Karen Rosenfelt is producing.
Aniston has recently appeared in the comedies “Horrible Bosses”, “Wanderlust” and “We’re the Millers” and can next be seen in the “Horrible Bosses” sequel, reprising her role of Julia Harris.
After starring in the action pic “Hanna”, Ronan has appeared in “The Host”, “Violet & Daisy”, “Byzantium” and “How I Live Now.” Next she’ll be seen in Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel.”
Both actresses are repped by CAA.
