Jennifer Aniston's latest film, Mean Moms, has suffered a setback after its release date has been delayed.
The comedy, which is in a similar vein to Mean Girls, had been set for a US release on May 8, 2015, but New Line has now pulled the film from its schedule, reported The Wrap.
In doing so, the film company also opted for forego a 6.7 million US dollars (£3.9 million) production tax credit from the state of California.
Instead, New Line announced that it will co-finance MGM's as-yet-untitled comedy formerly known as Don't Mess With Texas, which stars Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara. This film has been given the May 8, 2015 release date instead.
Like Mean Girls, Mean Moms is based on Rosalind Wiseman's advice books for parents.
The follow-up, which has been adapted for the big screen by Sean Anders and John Morris from Queen Bee Moms and King Pin Dads: Dealing With The Parents, Teachers, Coaches, and Counsellors Who Can Make - or Break - Your Child's Future - is still in the works.
Beth McCarthy-Miller will direct the comedy, which will focus on a happily married mother-of-two who faces the cut-throat world of competitive parenting when she moves to the American suburbs.
Jennifer, who last starred in We're The Millers, will reprise her role as Dr Julia Harris in Horrible Bosses 2. She is also attached to star in drama Cake alongside Anna Kendrick and Sam Worthington, and will reunite with Marley And Me co-star Owen Wilson on comedy She's Funny That Way.
