Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman are the stars of romantic comedy The Baster which is set to shoot in spring. Mandate International is introducing the project to buyers here.

Blades Of Glory directors Will Speck and Josh Gordon are reuniting on the Mandate Pictures tale of a woman who undergoes fertility treatment and doesn't know that her best friend is the sperm donor.

The project is based on Jeffrey Eugenides' short story Baster that was published in The New Yorker.

Bona Fide Productions' Albert Berger and Ron Yerxa are producing and Mandate president Nathan Kahane serves as executive producer along with Aniston and her partner at Echo Films Kristen Hahn.

Rob McEntegart, Mandate's head of business affairs, negotiated the deals on behalf of Mandate.
