Miss Aniston locked up!

JENNIFER ANISTON is ditching her tried-and-tested romantic comedies in favour of a period film - she's heading to prison to star as a singing felon.

The actress, who has enjoyed box office success with light-hearted movies such as Marley Me and Along Came Polly, has signed on to star in upcoming movie The Goree Girls, about country music singers the Goree All Girl String Band.

The group, stars of a popular 1940s radio show, was composed of Texas inmates sentenced to jail for various crimes including robbery, murder and cattle-rustling.

The Goree Girls is slated to hit cinemas in 2010, reports the Daily Variety.
