Jennifer Aniston to direct short film on breast cancer
The three women, along with filmmaker Patty Jenkins and another participant yet to be named, will each direct a short to be strung together and presented as "Project Five," a Lifetime Networks initiative to spotlight those battling breast cancer.
“Our hope with Project Five is to entertain, inform and inspire dialogue, research and prevention. Otherwise, our goals are small,” Aniston said in a statement, first reported by THR.
“We want these films to move people and empower those affected by breast cancer to stand tall through this challenge, which impacts ALL of our lives, no matter who we are.”
Aniston, who is close pals with cancer survivor Sheryl Crow, will hit the big screen again soon, too, as a member of the the Texas band "The Goree Girls."
