According to Variety, the new production company will be called Echo and will be linked with Universal Pictures.

Aniston released a statement saying: "We're drawn to stories about people finding their way because they help us [make] sense of our lives through the stories of others. That's why we chose the name Echo, to echo back an idea, a challenge, something that resonates through all of us."

The company has already bagged the rights to Jane Fallon's British bestseller Getting Rid of Matthew and Laura Dave's 'The Divorce Party.' The company is also taking on true-life stories Counter-Clockwise, about a Harvard study on aging, and The Goree Girls, about a wrongly accused woman who starts an all girl band in prison.

Aniston is currently in Miami filming Marley & Me with Owen Wilson.
