Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn in talks for “The Breakup” sequel


This story comes from Star Magazine, so it could be wishful thinking, but supposedly Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn are talking about filming a sequel to their 2006 movie The Breakup. Aniston’s salary for the film is said to be nearly $20 million:

[Aniston and Vaughn] are in talks to film a sequel to the 2006 hit movie The Breakup. “The ending left a lot of people craving more,” says an insider. And Jen has been offered close to $20 million to give the people what they want!

[From Star Magazine, print edition, October 13, 2008]

I’ll believe this is actually in the works once I read it in Variety or People. The film did well at the box office, with a domestic take of $118 million, and a foreign box office of $86 million. You can see how producers would be motivated to put out a sequel. We’ll have to wait and see.

In related news, Star reports that Vince Vaughn’s mom still tries to control him and has been nagging him about his career and even his wardrobe. Vaughn’s mom is said to be interfering in his relationship with his new girlfriend, Kyls Webber, 29. Star claims that Mrs. Vaughn even brings up Vince’s ex, Jennifer Aniston, all the time, maybe in an attempt to scare Kyla off:

Not only does Sharon Vaughn tell her 38-year-old son what to wear, she even dictates what movies he should work on, says a source. “She also keeps bringing up Vince’s ex, Jennifer Aniston. She just loves Jennifer! She talks about her beauty, her warm heart, her generosity.” Kyla, a 29-year-old commercial real estate agent, is “wondering when Vince will finally stand up to his mom,” says the source.

[From Star Magazine, print edition, October 13, 2008]

If Vince’s mommy loves Aniston so much, she’ll definitely approve of a sequel in which he plays her love interest on screen again. If any of this is true, that is.

    i LOVE LOVE LOVE this woman. I hope there really is a sequel to this movie. cant wait!

  2. Jody says:

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE that apartment in that movie. Gorgeous.

  3. Kaiser says:

    :lol: Interesting timing. So obvious, Pity Party. I guess John Mayer didn’t want to do another photo op.

  4. Trace says:

    I don’t believe it because 1) The first movie was horrible, not funny at all, and 2) Why would Vince Vaughn want to work with his ex again?

  5. geronimo says:

    Never saw it but the original got very mixed reviews. Very unlikely candidate for a sequel. And $20m?! Seriously?!

    Also, looks like he’s got a fairly full schedule incl. a new project with Jon Favreau – Couples Retreat – so again, highly unlikely.

    **********SPOILER ALERT**************

    Vince said he did this movie because he liked “the ending” and how it wasn’t a typical rom-com. I read that before I saw the movie, and then saw that they really, really, did break up in the end. That’s obviously what he was reffering to. So I don’t don’t see him doing a sequel because it flies in the face of the reason he did the movie in the first place… since, presumably, the characters would get back together and that would be too typical rom-com.

  7. A.J. says:

    I wasn’t impressed by the movie; I’d go so far to say that I’d like that $9 and 2 hours of my life back. Probably one of the most uninteresting films I’ve ever seen… I just couldn’t bring myself to give a crap about the characters, or the insipid storyline for that matter… so imho, a sequel would be both tedious and pointless. But hey, that’s just me.

  8. Pont Neuf says:

    Trace, I have to agree with you in that ‘The Breakup’ was a godawful film (and I think that we are being VERY generous by describing it so kindly), but I honestly never believed that Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn were a couple.

    It appeared to be more like the typical montage that publicists make in order to increase expectation about a film; especially when it is meant to be a supposed ‘romantic comedy’. Also, I guess that Jennifer Aniston needed to project an image of assured tranquility after Brad Pig, I mean, Pitt, unceremoniously dumped her for Angelina Jolie and her grotesquely inflated lips.

    Sadly, Jennifer hasn’t been very successful at achieving anything other than being constantly portrayed as ‘The Victim’ and choosing the worst films she can find while playing ‘Rachel-in-a-different-setting’ over and over again.

  9. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa says:

    I liked the Break Up! I think a lot of people went into it with a pre-disposition to either 1) not wanting to like it due to personal feelings about Aniston/Vaughn/Brangelina/etc. or 2) heard it was funny and then had high expectations as a result. I thought it was cute and, let’s face it, they weren’t shooting for the moon, just a cute movie good for a little entertainment.

    On that note, yeah, a sequel would totally ruin everything! haha!

  10. vdantev says:

    They could call it ‘Dumb& Dumber’ but they already used that title.

  11. dovesgate says:

    I liked that movie. It was what it was supposed to be – mindless fluff.

    I still wouldn’t want to see a sequel though. Nothing against either actor, just wishing Hollywood would concentrate on finding something new to do instead of remaking something or doing a pre/sequel.

  12. kate says:

    the movie was … actually, i don’t really remember it. i know i netflixed it, but i just don’t remember the plot. i guess that’s not a good sign!

  13. KERRI says:

    I saw this coming. I read somewhere that JA met with Vince for dinner. I don’t know if it’s true, but I definitely KNEW that oh-pity-me would come up with something to take the spotlight off of Brad and Angie.

    I’m beginning to suspect that she likes playing the role of “I’m So Lonely I Could Cry” — (hey, there’s a good movie title).

    This woman is so immature that she really is pathetic. She is the Tabloid Queen of Headlines speculating on who might be “THE ONE”, and she plays it to the hilt.

    She’s a one-dimensional actress –Rachel, anyone? and that’s as far as her so-called acting career is going to go. Dead-End. She’s NEEDS to remain single, so the public can continue to speculate on what her plans are for a new husband. Very smart Rachel, er, Jen. If she marries and settles down with a family, she will be quickly replaced by younger actresses that can actually act!

  14. KRIS says:

    To the comments regarding Jen’s credentials that Kerri stated, you dont know what the hell you are talking about. She is by no means a tabloid queen, there are plenty of other women that they are much more interested in, you never see Jen on the front cover with a scandal! Obviously, you are a Brangelina fan, and Jen doesnt play the pity party, if that was the case, she would still continue to bring up the past and she doesnt. She has moved on with her life and is beautiful! Stop hating! As for the movie, I would love to see a sequel, because those two are great together! But, it wouldnt make much sense due to the ending of the original! :wink:

  15. someone says:

    Kris..I couldn’t have said it better, I don’t know why the Brangaloonies keep saying “pity party”..she hasn’t mentioned BP in years, and she tries to stay out of the spotlight as much as she can..Brad and AJ are the real Media hos…

  16. Dandee says:

    Why don’t you people stop putting down Jennifer so much? Are you jealous? It could be that you are and don’t want anyone to be happy unless you are happy also!

  17. KERRI says:

    I promised CB I will not respond to rude comments about my posts, therefore, I will quote a very famouse line:

    “you can’t see the forest for the trees”.

    Also, nah,nah,nah,nah,nah,nah. I am not jealous of JA. I just can’t STAND HER!!!

    Sorry, CB, I broke my promise. :oops:

  18. A.J. says:

    What, so disliking her for any reason automatically makes one a Brangeloonie? Are you serious? That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard of.

    As for saying “stop hating”… um, no. I do not care for her and she has never given me any reason to like her, so I’ll be as much of a “hater” as I want to be. The girl is overrated; her roles are often nothing more than recycled caricatures of characters past, and her acting skills marginal at best. I’m sorry, but she is NOT worth $20mil/film. The woman is no Bette Davis or Elizabeth Taylor. She’s nothing more than a television has-been who churns out cinematic yawnfests and on occasion will grant an interview where she spews the same boring “Gee golly, I’ve never been happier in life, really” drivel. Same shit, different day, so to speak.

    Edit: sorry if that was really bitchy. I’ve been having the worst mood swings the past few days… pregnancy hormones SUCK.

    I still don’t give a rat’s ass about Jennifer Aniston, though :lol:

  19. daisy424 says:

    Congrats AJ!! :D When are you due?

    Jen should stick to comedy on TV.

  20. KERRI says:

    Thank you A.J. You brought up a lot of interesting points — “I’ve never been happier in my life”, same old, same old, et,al…

    I can go on and on about this shallow, self-obsessed skank, but I’ll just get a headache.

    Congrats and Good-Luck on your pregnancy!

  21. A.J. says:

    Thanks Daisy! I just reached the six month mark yesterday, actually… I’m going absolutely crazy and cannot wait for this kid to get here. Is it January yet? :wink:

    And yeah, Aniston should indeed stick to what she’s best at and known for: television. I was never a big fan of Friends, but she did make me chuckle a time or two on that show.

  22. RAN says:

    Yeah, I didn’t like The Break Up much and doubt I would like the sequel. I watched it because both of the actors entertain me, but overall, the movie was sort of bland.

    It IS sort of immature when one reads the amount of vitriol directed at this woman. Kris actually said it pretty well… no matter what insinuations and assumptions are made, I don’t see Aniston going out of her way to foster the ‘pity party’ or to talk about BP and AJ. In all honesty, that line of bullcrap is very tired. Then again, I’m not an Anistonloonie, so w/e. For the record, JA did not play Rachel in several movies – I don’t memorize the films, but the two movies one with Clive Owen and one with Jake Gyllenhaal were as far from Rachel as you can get. Facts first, folks

    **Edit.. And let’s face it. Who, in Hollywood, is really much more than a limited dimensional actor/tress? None of them. The days of Hepburn (Audrey and Kat), Taylor, are long gone.

  23. daisy424 says:

    AJ, do you know the gender yet?
    The Tom Petty song “Waiting” used to go through my mine while pregnant.
    It’s worth every minute especially when they hand you your baby :wink:
    Hang in there! :D

    No clue yet- we want a surprise, lol. My mother swears up and down it’s going to be a boy, but we’ll just have to wait and see!

    I’m really excited, even though every day I look down at my belly and still cannot seem to fathom that there is a tiny person in there, haha. I can’t wait to meet him or her, and that meeting can’t come soon enough. It hasn’t been too bad other than the moodiness, ridiculously swollen boobs (they came before the bump, and people were asking me if I had gotten a boob job, lol), and the waking-up-at-3am-wanting-ice-cream part. The doc says that’s all pretty standard though, so I’m not stressin’ it. :)

  26. dumdee says:

    some of you guys just think that all jennifer aniston does is sit in her room all day plotting to take the spot light off angelina nad her brood. she’s over it already! you guys should be too. i doubt she’s looking for pity, you guys are just biased towards angelina jolie. and thats something i dont understand, SHE got brad pitt. so why you guys hating on her so much? leave the lady be! all three parties seem to be happy so lets just leave it as it is ok? and stop coming up with all these stupid theories that dont make bloody sense half of the time

  27. geronimo says:

    I don’t care for her because she’s IMO a very limited actress and, based on her interviews, not a particularly interesting person. Is that ok?

    RAN – sorry, sweeping generalisation there, your ‘Who, in Hollywood, is really much more than a limited dimensional actor/tress? None of them.’ That’s just not true. Laura Linney, Toni Collette, Naomi Watts, Christina Ricci, Laura Dern, William H Macy, Robert Downey Junior, Christian Bale…the list goes on and on and on. Just sayin….

  28. geronimo says:

    CB, comment gone to spam. Please restore. Ta.

  29. RAN says:

    dumdee, that’s been my take for a while. I find myself defending Jennifer Aniston against the very same people who claim to defend AJ against the “irrational, disturbing, made up, OTT, etc. stuff”. However, the JA comments seem to be just as irrational, made up, OTT, etc. Sometimes I think JA doesn’t go out of her way to hide her personal business, but then… why should she? Certainly she’s a hypocrite at times, but so is the ‘save the world’ philosophies of the other two.

  30. RAN says:

    G, just saw your comment that must have gone to spam. You’re right.. I wasn’t thinking of those folks so it was a pretty sweeping generalization. I was thinking more along the lines of the younger crowd – A Jolie, Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, etc… But you know what… your list has some pretty young folks on it too.. so I stand corrected. Then again, I can’t agree that anyone on your list has reached the Clark Gable, Audrey Hepburn, Paul Newman, Liz Taylor type of credibility. Do you think they ever will?

  31. geronimo says:

    RAN – Like most people who love cinema, my tastes cross all the divides and while nothing will ever again match the glamour and excitement of that era of film-making, I personally feel the range of many contemporary actors matches, and in many cases, surpasses that of their iconic predecessors. Film-making and acting is a much tougher game now – and international independent cinema, in particular, has produced extraordinary talent, talent that can more than compete with the iconic greats. But JMO.

    But, on the glamour and style fronts, Old Hollywood wins hands down – no competition! THAT is definitely a thing of the past.

  32. Whuh? says:

    This is a crock of hooey. Vaughn’s mother couldn’t stand Aniston and thinks she’s a phony. Even more damning Vaughn himself doesn’t want anything more to do with Aniston. You can put this down to Aniston’s uber-dog PR flack Stephen Huvane trying to generate interest in Aniston’s upcoming dud with Gerard Butler. Every since Butler put the kibbosh on their fauxmance Huvane’s been scrambling for a replacement PR strategy. The fact is – if The Bounty Hunter fails then Aniston’s days are a “lead” actress in romcoms are over. After the box office failures of Love Happens and Management she can’t get any projects greenlit on her name alone. Without the likes of Vaughn & Sandler poor weepy Jen would have to head back to tv with her tail tucked between her legs. She just needs to admit the fact that she’ll never be a true A-list movie star the way Pitt and Jolie are, get over herself and stop inflicting bad romcoms on the world! Enough already, Jen!
