Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson are set to star in a film adaptation of Marley & Me, a book about a couple that get a lab puppy to prepare themselves for parenthood.  Scott Frank (Minority Report, Out of Sight) is working on the script, with David Frankel (The Devil Wears Prada) on to direct.

See, I always thought the Hollywood thing to do was to adopt a third world ethnic-type baby to prepare for parenthood. That way if you fuck it up, you can just yell, "Yeah? Well he’d be sitting on a dirt floor eating flies if it weren’t for me!  And now he’s got an iPod!  AN IPOD!"

You hear that kind of stuff coming from the Jolie-Pitt house all the time.  The More You Know: Adopting an ethnic child is a great way to prepare for having a real baby.

HOLY CRAP, LOOK HOW CUTE THAT LAB PUPPY IS!!  (runs off during momentary distraction)
