Comments Off on Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions to distribute “Mud” in 2013
Lionsgate, Roadside sling Jeff Nichols’ ‘Mud’
Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions are in advanced discussions to acquire U.S. rights to Jeff Nichols’ “Mud,” which stars Matthew McConaughey as the title character, along with Reese Witherspoon and Michael Shannon. Distribs plan a 2013 release.
Cannes competition pic was fully financed by Everest Entertainment (“127 Hours”), which produced with overseas distributor FilmNation Entertainment.
Redemptive coming-of-age tale follows a dangerous yet charismatic fugitive named Mud (McConaughey) and his unlikely friendship with Arkansas teens Ellis (Tye Sheridan) and Neckbone (Jacob Lofland), who help Mud escape from the law and bounty hunters. Witherspoon plays Mud’s soulmate Juniper, with whom he’s desperately trying to reunite.
Pic also stars Sam Shepard, Sarah Paulson, Ray McKinnon and Joe Don Baker.
Everest founder Lisa Maria Falcone produced with FilmNation’s Aaron Ryder and Sarah Green, who exec produced Nichols’ drama “Take Shelter.” Everest’s Tom Heller and Gareth Smith exec produced with FilmNation CEO Glen Basner, whose company handled international sales. FilmNation also repped domestic rights along with CAA.
“We have had an extraordinary journey with this film so far, from the rivers of rural Arkansas to the French Riviera, and it is fitting that our next step is with partners like Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions,” said Falcone. “Their teams share our passion for unconventional, unique material, and they have a deep understanding of how to bring such distinctive films to market.”

Reese is featured on the cover of the September issue of Elle Decor magazine, with a large spread looking at her beautiful Californian home inside. The article talks about the history of the house, how it’s been developed, and how Reese and her designers have added to the property to tailor it to Reese. Reese talks about her reasons for buying the house, and adds that she sees herself as it’s “care-taker”, rather than the owner.
In our Gallery you can find a full set of scans from the magazine, the photoshoot pictures of Reese, plus the images of the house itself. You can read the full article in the scans, as well as at the Elle Decor website here.
Thanks Zuzi for the heads-up on this.

Comments Off on Reese Witherspoon to Star in Romantic Comedy ‘The Beard’
The Hollywood Reporter: Reese Witherspoon is heading back into romantic comedy territory with The Beard.
Chernin Entertainment has dipped into its discretionary fund to pick up the project, a spec script by Becca Greene.
Witherspoon will star in the project and produce with Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping of Cherinin Entertainment and Mason Novick.
While it might be tempting to see a story about Witherspoon growing facial hair, the “beard” in the title refers to a member of the opposite sex — usually a woman — who acts as a date for a gay person, giving the illusion the person isn’t gay. Story details were not revealed.
Witherspoon is shooting Devil’s Knot, Atom Egoyan’s take on the West Memphis Three murder case that also stars Colin Firth. She also has the indie drama Mud, with Matthew McConaughey, in the can. Her most recently romantic comedy was the action-filled This Means War with Tom Hardy and Chris Pine; the movie grossed $156 million worldwide.
Green was a staff writer on Good Vibes, an MTV series of animated shorts created by David Gordon Green and starring the voices of Adam Brody and Josh Gad. This is her first feature script.
Witherspoon is repped by CAA, Management 360 and Hansen Jacobson. Greene is repped by CAA and managers Novick and Michelle Knudsen.

Comments Off on Media section added & updated
After much hard work today, our Media section is now back up and running! I have re-added all pages, and added new media into them. New additions include AIM Icons, Bookmarks, Desktop Icons, Fan Signs, i-Backgrounds and Twitter backgrounds … pretty much every page in there. We also have some shiny new wallpapers kindly made and contributed to Glamour Reese by Larissa – thank you!
As I’ve mentioned before, our previous Fanarchive section was lost somewhere along the line when the site changed owners and hosts, so unfortunately all the media we housed in there was lost too. Which is such a shame, because I know it was packed full of your artwork!!
If anyone has any Reese media of any kind that they’d like to contribute and see displayed up here on Glamour Reese then please get in touch! We’d love to display your work, and would make sure you get a big fat credit for it 🙂
