Friends favourite Jennifer Aniston is teaming up with Julia Roberts for a comedy over at Amazon Studios.

According to Deadline, this body-swap caper was up for auction among various streaming platforms and studios recently, with the company behind last year's Catherine, Called Birdy and Thirteen Lives submitting the biggest offer.

Max Barbakow (Palm Springs) will write and direct the movie, while Margot Robbie's LuckyChap Entertainment is also involved.

Alongside her iconic sitcom roots, Aniston has graced a great number of funny flicks over the years, including Netflix's Murder Mystery, Bruce Almighty and We're the Millers.

Roberts, meanwhile, took home an Oscar for her lead performance in the 2000 drama Erin Brockovich, followed by notable turns in Amazon Prime's stunning first season of Homecoming, the Ocean's franchise and Ticket to Paradise.

Earlier this month, we were given a glimpse of Roberts in her first-ever Netflix project, an adaptation of Rumaan Alam's novel Leave the World Behind.

Also starring Ethan Hawke, Mahershala Ali, Myha'la Herrold and Kevin Bacon, it sees one family's vacation sinisterly interrupted by two strangers claiming there's been a blackout.

They must each decide on the best method to survive the crisis, while grappling with their place in a crumbling world.
