Jennifer Aniston to play 'Mrs Robinson's granddaughter'

Jennifer Aniston is to star in a comedy about a woman who believes her family inspired the characters in The Graduate.

She will play a woman who discovers she might be the grandchild of the woman who inspired Mrs Robinson, reports Variety.

The Friends star will play a woman who unlocks the family secret on which the 1967 film, which starred Anne Bancroft and Dustin Hoffman, was based.

George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh's company Section Eight are co-producing the movie, which will be the directorial debut of Ocean's 11 writer Ted Griffin.

The as-yet-untitled film, which Griffin has also scripted, starts shooting in April.
