Jennifer Aniston and a few other famous females are teaming up to make a movie that makes a difference.
Singer Alicia Keys, actress Demi Moore and filmmaker Patty Jenkins will all join the former "Friends" star as directors on the Lifetime Original Movie "Project Five," the network has announced.
The movie is a collection of humorous and dramatic short films that explore the impact of breast cancer on people's lives, from the way diagnosis affects relationships to how those diagnosed perceive themselves.
"I'm a big fan of this amazing group of powerful and creative women, and we are thrilled to be working with them on 'Project Five,'" says Nancy Dubuc, president and general manager of Lifetime Networks. "It's an awesome feeling to be able to give them such a strong platform to do what they do best – entertain and tell great stories – so that we all educate viewers about breast cancer through these five films of courage, love, and hope."
Aniston, who is also producing the movie, adds that their "hope with 'Project Five' is to entertain, inform, and inspire dialogue, research, and prevention. Otherwise, our goals are small...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."
