Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston have announced plans to remain business partners, following their shock split earlier this month (JAN05).

The future of the former couple's production company PLAN B ENTERTAINMENT was thrown into doubt when company co-founder Brad Grey announced just days before their split he would become head of Paramount Pictures.

But publicists for the stars tell USA TODAY that their company has more than a dozen movies in the works which they plan to press ahead with - including this summer's (05) anticipated Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, starring Johnny Depp.

Several of the projects are high profile - such as the crime thriller THE DEPARTED, which is scheduled to start shooting in the spring (05) and will star Martin Scorsese and LEONARDO DiCAPRIO and MATT DAMON starring.

At one point, it was speculated that Pitt and Aniston would co-star in at least two Plan B projects - the romantic fantasy THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE and A MIGHTY HEART, about slain journalist DANIEL PEARL and wife MARIANE - but they're no longer expected to take on the roles.
