We already know she can act, but now America’s Sweetheart Jennifer Aniston is set to show off her vocal skills in upcoming movie The Goree Girls, a drama based on a group of female prisoners in the 1940s who form a country and western band.E! News reveals the plans, as the movie’s director Michael Sucsy says, “She can sing. And she’s going to learn how to play the Dobro [guitar].”

As for the rest of her band, Jen’s fellow musicians have yet to be cast, and Sucsy is looking to fill those roles with real musicians. Aniston’s fellow inmates haven’t been cast yet.

“These women learned to harmonize and they learned to play instruments,” Sucsy explained. “They weren’t these amazing, accomplished singers who banded together. That’s what’s interesting about it.

“I’m off the hook there,” he laughed. “I think it was divine intervention.”
