Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler are in negotiations to topline an untitled bounty hunter project at Columbia Pictures, says Variety.

Hitch helmer Andy Tennant is attached to direct the comedy, which centers on a bounty hunter (Butler) hired to retrieve his ex-wife (Aniston), who has skipped bail.

Sarah Thorp, whose most recent big screen credit is the Ashley Judd starrer Twisted, penned the script.

The studio is eyeing a May start date.

Neal Moritz is producing through his Sony-based Original Films.
