Garner on a sexy Sabbatical

“Alias” star spicing up her image even more


Sounds like we might be seeing ‘a lot more’ of Jennifer Garner than we’re use to (though those skimpy swimming cossies leave little to the imagination anyway).

The very-pregnant Mrs Affleck – though she won’t be then, obviously – is set to shake up her image by starring in a spicy erotic thriller called “Sabbatical”.

The story follows a couple that hits the doldrums in their seventh year of marriage. To inject some life into their union, they decide to take a two-week sabbatical from each other during which, within a set of rules, they can do whatever they want. When the wife returns to the agreed-upon meeting place two weeks later, however, she discovers that her husband has disappeared.

There’s an interesting link to Ben here. Live Planet – the company Ben, Matt Damon and Chris Moore head up – are handling the film. They were also behind TV’s Project Greenlight and the upcoming Affleck starrer Gone, Baby, Gone. Now I gotta wonder – whose going to play the hubby in the film?
