Jennifer Aniston is on the prowl for younger men ... in an upcoming romantic comedy, that is.

According to Variety, the actress, 40, has signed to headline Pumas, which centers on two thirtysomething women who make a habit of romancing younger men. The ladies "take a French skiing vacation that challenges their romantic expectations," the trade reports. (Interestingly, Aniston's real-life BFF, Courteney Cox, will play an older woman looking for a younger man in the fall ABC sitcom, Cougar Town.)

Anison first mentioned the project in December's Vogue -- the same issue where she said comments Angelina Jolie made about Brad Pitt were "uncool" -- describing it as a "female Wedding Crashers."

"It is so a comment on the sexual double standard, and what's been ironic is how hard it's been to get this movie made... Studios want it, but they are afraid of Middle America," Aniston later told January's GQ. "They'd want to change it; they're saying, 'Oh, you can't do that, people just can't imagine you..."

Aniston told GQ that "there are too many movies out there that don't empower women, movies in which their only way of being happy is finding a man. And you know, that's not my favorite theme."

Pumas is the latest project for Aniston. She recently wrapped the comedy The Baster with Jason Bateman and is currently shooting The Bounty Hunter in NYC with Gerard Butler.
