According to Variety, Reese Witherspoon and Type A Films are producing a new movie, Under the Bridge:

Reese Witherspoon’s Type A Films is developing Under the Bridge, based on Rebecca Godfrey’s true-crime account of a brutal high school murder. Thirteen helmer Catherine Hardwicke is in talks to direct the pic.

There’s no word yet on whether Witherspoon will star in Bridge, which will chronicle the 1997 killing of high school student Reena Virk in a small British Columbia town and the ensuing investigation and prosecution. Godfrey, who’s from the same area, returned to her hometown to research the eight high schoolers who were charged in the case, investigating the cliques at the group’s well-off school as well as the life of Virk, the daughter of Indian immigrants. Two of the students were convicted in 2005.

Type A has bought both film rights to the book and life rights to Godfrey’s story, with the possibility of the author herself becoming a character in the pic.

Witherspoon is aboard to star in horror pic Our Family Trouble, which Type A is producing. It’s set up at Universal.
Hardwicke most recently directed The Nativity Story for New Line.

Type A Films produced “Penelope,” which IFC Films is releasing this summer, and also has the Lasse Hallstrom-helmed “Sammy” in production with Columbia.

I live in the “small town” where this happened (it’s actually not a small town, it’s a big city, it’s Victoria, British Columbia). I went to school with Reena’s younger sister. I hope this film is made, and shows the monsters who killed poor Reena. Hopefully this will be not just a rumour. Yay for Reese.

"And last week I saw Cameron Diaz at Fred Segal, and I talked her out of buying this truly heinous angora sweater. Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed."
