Reese Witherspoon in Talks to Star in ‘The Good Lie’
Inspired by real events, The Good Lie centers on a young refugee of the Sudanese Civil War who wins a lottery for relocation to the U.S. with three other lost boys. Encountering the modern world for the first time, they develop an unlikely friendship with a brash American woman assigned to help them, but the young man struggles to adjust to his new life and his feelings of guilt about the brother he left behind.
Monsieur Lazhar’s Philippe Falardeau is set to direct from a screenplay by Margaret Nagle (Warm Springs).
The Good Lie will be produced by Black Label Media, the newly formed production and financing company from The Blind Side’s Molly Smith. Imagine Entertainment’s Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Karen Kehela Sherwood are producers, with Kim Roth and Reliance Entertainment’s Deepak Nayar as executive producers.
Nagle, who won WGA Awards in 2006 and 2011, developed the screenplay in Imagine Writer’s Lab. She is currently adapting Tuxedo Park for Playtone. Nagle is repped by UTA, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and attorney David Matlof.
Witherspoon has a slew of films on tap, including Mud on May 26 and the forthcoming The Devil’s Knot. She is repped by Management 360 and CAA.
Falardeau’s Monsieur Lazhar was nominated for best foreign-language film last year at the Oscars. He is repped by UTA.
The L.A.-based Black Label Media was formed by Smith, Trent Luckinbill and Thad Luckinbill.
Arnold Oceng: “The film is such a blessing to be part of it’s a personal story to the people of Sudan and it’s a story that needs to be told to the world, and I’m honored to be working with a great cast and crew. Reese is awesome and such a great humble down to earth person who is also a great actor who I am learning from everyday we’re on set.”

Comments Off on Forbes’s Highest-Grossing Romantic Couples
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson Top Our List Of Hollywood’s Highest-Grossing Romantic Couples
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, when movie lovers’ thoughts turn to romance films. Older folks might think of putting on Casablanca; Gen X’ers, Say Anything. What does it say about the millennial generation that the most popular love story of their time involves a young lady, a vampire and a werewolf?
That’s why Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson land at the top of our list of Hollywood’s Highest-Grossing Romantic Couples. We looked at the top-grossing romantic movies of the last three years. Twilight was by far the biggest box office winner over that period, earning $1.17 billion.
The fact that we get to track the couple’s off-screen romance along with their on-screen love just adds to the overall romance of the films. The couple is reportedly back together after breaking up over Stewart’s fling with the married director of her film Snow White and the Huntsman.
Pattinson is also a member of the 10th place couple on our list alongside Reese Witherspoon. Their film Water for Elephants earned $59 million in the U.S. in 2011. Those aren’t Twilight numbers, but considering that the movie brought in an extra $58 million internationally and only cost $38 million to make, it was a small hit.
Mud screened at the Sundance Film Festival last nightwith Matthew McConaughey taking on promotional duties because unfortunately Reese was not in attendance. Reviews from the film are coming online, and below are the ones I’ve come across so far.
‘Mud’ is a great story, but not a particularly great film.
Dripping in regional specificity and broad metaphor, Jeff Nichols’ new film feels more like a big, fat American novel you get assigned in 10th grade than the follow-up to ‘Take Shelter.’ That earlier film’s ominous tone and psychological portraiture is traded-in for large, gestural story beats that itch to be broken down and discussed for their symbolic meaning. When you are done explaining just what Boo Radley represented, then you can sink your teeth into Joe Don Baker’s character “King.”
There are worse crimes, though, than being grand, and ‘Mud”s coming of age tale certainly is that. Young Tye Sheridan plays Ellis, a good kid living “on the river” in Arkansas with an underachieving but caring father and a mother looking for change. He and his buddy Neckbone (Jacob Lofland) discover a boat stuck in a tree on an island, but they also discover a curious dude living there. It is Matthew McConaughey, charismatic as ever, but this time with a snake tattoo and a pistol stuck in the back of his jeans.
The first trailer for Mud was released earlier this week! The movie looks more intense that I had expected, and I think it’s going to be a really interesting film. Reese certainly seems to have a good part.
Along with the trailer comes a release date for the US – April 26th – and an official website – mud-themovie.com.

This is a bit gossipy, but maybe something more official will come of it?
Vergara, Witherspoon: Comic dream
Sofia Vergara could be teaming with Reese Witherspoon on an upcoming project. The two funny gals were spotted “laughing and joking” together over tea at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills yesterday, and sources exclusively tell us the meeting was about working on a movie together. “They are both great comedic actresses, and a joint project could be fantastic,” a source told us of the potential union. A spy added, “Sofia and Reese couldn’t be more different, but they got on famously, they were laughing the whole time. They were heard talking movies and brainstorming ideas.” Witherspoon has taken time off from working as she gave birth to son Tennessee James in September. Vergara has been flexing her comedic chops on “Modern Family,” and also in ads for Pepsi.
Last weekend, Reese and her husband attended Sean Penn’s Haiti Benefit Gala in Los Angeles. They were two of many celebrity guests attending the event to raise money for Penn’s Haiti charity. US Weekly says that Reese bid $125,000 for something, although the article further down this post gives a different figure and more details. Check out the HQ photos of Reese watching the auction in the audience in our Gallery:

Mindy Kaling on Reese Witherspoon: “We Want to Work Together!”
It seems as if everyone in Hollywood is dying to guest star on The Mindy Project — Reese Witherspoon included!
At FOX’s Winter TCA Tour cocktail party in Pasadena, Calif., Jan. 8, series creator and star Mindy Kaling chatted with Us Weekly about why she’d love to see Witherspoon make a cameo on the freshman comedy. (The two were first spotted on a lunch date in L.A.’s Brentwood neighborhood on Dec. 1, 2012.)
“She is a fan of my book which is a really nice thing. She wrote me a nice note about it,” the Is Everybody Hanging Out Without Me? author, 33, said of Witherspoon, 36. “We want to work together; we’re just trying to think of a good project.”
