Jennifer Aniston has been cast in 'Cake'.

The 44-year-old actress stars as a woman who becomes intrigued by the death of someone in her support group, in a film which is being produced by Courtney Solomon in a $50 million collaboration between Chinese TV producer Shenghua Entertainment and After Dark Films, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Solomon said: ''Our goal is to find great material and great talent and let them do what they do best and Shenghua has proven a great partner to make that happen.

''The formation of Cinelou Films DHJ, and this new venture with Shenghua is a unique pact which allows us to give great projects a chance to be made for the right reasons without many of the usual limitations put on indie films.''

'Cake' is the first in a five movie production which will be directed by Daniel Barnz, and written by Patrick Tobin.

Aniston - who was catapulted to the spotlight in TV comedy 'Friends' - recently starred in 'We're the Millers' alongside Jason Sudeikis, Emma Roberts and Will Poulter.
