Mean Moms

okay so I know that there’s this movie poster of Mean Moms (with Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock and Cameron Diaz on it) floating around at the moment, but there has been no confirmation, in fact NO news at all about it.

the only thing we know is that supposedly Jennifer Aniston plays (one of) the main role(s) and Beth McCarthy-Miller will direct the movie. it was supposed to be released on May 8th, 2015 but was already pulled from said release on May 8th, 2014.

“Development on Mean Moms continues, however, as the project is being rewritten by the team of Sean Anders and John Morris (Sex Drive). Television director Beth McCarthy-Miller was, and still is, set to make her feature debut on the film, which is likely looking at a third quarter 2015 release.” - Source

NOTHING has been announced about either Sandy or Cameron joining so I really have no idea where all of this is coming from. there’s also nothing at all on its imdb, in fact Mean Moms isn’t even mentioned on Jen’s imdb yet!
