Angelina Jolie may have won the man, but Jennifer Aniston isn’t letting her win the box-office battle! After lackluster directorial efforts by Jolie, Aniston hopes to rival her ex-husband Brad Pitt’s wife by directing a film in 2016.
“She’s let her management team know that this is very much her priority, so it’s all about finding the right project,” a source exclusively told OKMagazine.com of Aniston, 46.
From Unbroken to By The Sea, Aniston wants to avoid the “misery movie” route Jolie, 40, has taken as a director. “Jen still wants a plot that has substance and staying power,” the insider revealed. “Not some one-off that will be released then quickly forgotten.”

The actress is “burying herself in books” and “trying to find a story she can adapt to as a director.”
Although her husband Justin Theroux is open to working with his wife by acting in the flick, she doesn’t want to follow in Jolie and Pitt’s By The Sea footsteps. “Jen wants to avoid co-starring with him straight off the bat,” the source said.
