The 'Devil' in Jennifer Garner
Ben Affleck's wife is a busy, busy woman
The "Alias" and "Dude, Where's My Car?" actress is expected to produce and star in the comedy "Devil in the Junior League," one of a slew of upcoming projects on Garner's slate.
According to Variety, "Devil in the Junior League" is an adaptation of Linda Francis Lee's book, which focuses on a Southern socialite whose husband runs off with another woman and their life's savings. The lawyer she enlists to help refuses to take the case unless she helps his less-than-gentile wife get into the Junior League.
Garner and Juliana James would produce through their Vandalia Films shingle. Scott Stuber and Mary Parent's predictably named Stuber/Parent banner would also produce the Universal vehicle.
While Garner's first post-baby/post-"Alias" film, the romantic-comedy "Catch and Release," failed to set the box office aflame, hopes are higher for the thriller "The Kingdom," recently moved to a late-September release date. The actress will co-star in Jason Reitman's "Juno" and is set to topline "Be With You" and a remake of "Christmas in Connecticut."
