Reese Witherspoon, Kerry Washington Starrer ‘Little Fires Everywhere’ Lands at Hulu

Hulu has landed Little Fires Everywhere.

Following a multiple-outlet bidding war, the streaming service has handed out a straight-to-series order for the adaptation of Celeste Ng’s book with Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington attached to star and exec produce. A premiere date for the eight-episode drama has not yet been determined.

Witherspoon’s company Hello Sunshine snatched up the rights to Little Fires Everywhere before its publication last year and brought it to Washington. Together, Witherspoon and Washington brought it to writer Liz Tigelaar (Casual, Life Unexpected) to adapt it and servd as showrunner. Hello Sunshine and Simpson Street then brought in ABC Signature Studios’ Tracy Underwood. The cable-focused arm of ABC Studios will exec produce the series alongside Hello Sunshine and Simpson Street. The package ignited a bidding war among those who heard the pitch. Sources note that several outlets attempted to take the package off the table, but Witherspoon and those involved insisted on letting everyone hear the pitch as they mull the right home for the project. (In a rare move, network execs went to the Hello Sunshine offices rather than producers hopping from network to network.) Little Fires Everywhere will be a co-production between ABC Signature and Hello Sunshine. It’s the first project on which the latter has served as the studio.

Little Fires Everywhere follows the intertwined fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and an enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives. The story explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, the ferocious pull of motherhood – and the danger in believing that following the rules can avert disaster.

Tigelaar will pen the script, exec produce and serve as showrunner. Washington and her ABC Studios-based Simpson Street banner-topper Pilar Savone will exec produce. Witherspoon will also exec produce via her ABC Studios-based shingle alongside Hello Sunshine topper Lauren Neustadter, who optioned the book with Witherspoon for Hello Sunshine. Author Ng will serve as a producer. The book was a September pick of Witherspoon’s book club and an instant best-seller, appearing on many year-end best-of lists.

“Celeste wove a beautiful, riveting story that spoke to all of us, and when we heard the vision Reese, Kerry and Liz have for the series, we knew immediately that we had to bring it to Hulu,” said Hulu chief content officer Joel Stillerman. “We’re honored to bring this powerful story to the screen with Hello Sunshine, in their first studio project. This is exactly the type of compelling and culturally relevant content that embodies our Hulu Originals brand.”

Little Fires Everywhere is the latest TV venture for Witherspoon. The actress and prolific producer also has the upcoming second season of HBO’s Emmy-winning Big Little Lies due in 2019, and is set to star opposite Jennifer Aniston and exec produce an untitled morning show drama that landed at Apple with a two-season order. The Oscar winner and Emmy nominee’s Hello Sunshine is also exec producing Apple’s Kristen Wiig’s straight-to-series comedy and developing Octavia Spencer starrer Are You Sleeping for the tech giant. Witherspoon is repped by CAA, LBI Entertainment and Hansen Jacobson. Hello Sunshine is repped by CAA and Hansen Jacobson.

Reese Witherspoon & New Line Set ‘A Private War’ Scribe For ‘In A Dark Dark Wood’ Adaptation

Reese Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea’s adaptation of Ruth Ware’s suspense novel In A Dark Dark Wood is kicking up a gear after finding a writer. The film, which is set up at New Line with fellow producers The Gotham Group, is being written by A Private War scribe Arash Amel.

Amel will adapt the New York Times best-selling mystery-thriller which centers on a reclusive writer who receives an invitation to a bachelorette party of her best friend from high school who she hasn’t seen in 10 years. Witherspoon and Papandrea are producing alongside Ellen Goldsmith-Vein (Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials), Lindsay Williams (Maze Runner) and Shari Smiley who will produce for The Gotham Group. There are no plans at present for Witherspoon to star in this one.

Witherspoon and Papandrea ended their successful Pacific Standard collaboration in 2016 but they continue to produce the projects they had in development at the company, which Witherspoon maintains alongside her outfit Hello Sunshine. During their Pacific run the pair championed female-driven properties and movie adaptations of best-selling books such as Wild, for which Witherspoon scored a best actress Oscar nomination, and box office winner Gone Girl. More recently the duo hit it out of the park with HBO favourite Big Little Lies, which has been ordered for a second season.

Amel recently wrote the screenplay for anticipated Marie Colvin biopic A Private War, which is being directed by Cartel Land helmer Matthew Heineman and stars Rosamund Pike as the famed US war correspondent alongside Jamie Dornan and Stanley Tucci. The film is considered a strong contender for a summer or fall festival slot. Amel is a producer and writer on Sam Worthington sci-fi The Titan, which rolls out this year, and script Seducing Ingrid Bergman, which has Jessica Chastain attached.

Novelist Ware is similarly in-demand. The writer’s New York Times-bestseller The Lying Game is being turned into a television series for Entertainment One (eOne) and the growing Gotham Group while CBS Films has set up The Woman In Cabin 10.

Witherspoon is repped by CAA, LBI Entertainment and Hansen Jacobson. Papandrea is repped by WME. Amel is repped by CAA, Grandview and Myman, Greenspan. Ware is repped The Gotham Group and Eve White Literary Agency in the U.K.

Allison Janney praises Reese Witherspoon and Margot Robbie for offering roles to older women

Allison Janney has praised Hollywood for offering more roles to older women, as this year’s crop of Best Supporting Actress are all women who are over the age of 45.

‘Love that, that’s extraordinary, I didn’t even put it together, I wish I had thought of saying something about that,’ she said as Metro.co.uk asked her if she felt there was a shift in the film industry.

Allison won the Best Supporting Actress award for her work on I, Tonya; she was up against Lesley Manville, Kristin Scott Thomas, Octavia Spencer and Laurie Metcalf.

‘As someone whose career didn’t start until they were 38, I’ve been happy and fortunate to be cast in roles, and now more than ever there are more roles for women, and more female producers,’ she said.

‘Reese Witherspoon and Big Little Lies, and all the extraordinary talented women coming to TV – as there is better opportunity for more complex roles – and people like Margot [Robbie]. I am so excited for her to become an important producer,’ she said.

Her I, Tonya co-star Margot Robbie set up her own production company in 2014, and she helped to produce the Bafta-winning film.

‘She’s so young and yet she knew she wasn’t getting the roles she wanted so she started her own company and looked for female driven content,’ said Allison.

‘And people like her will change the landscape of the film world and i think it’s only going to get better and better.’

Oprah Talks with Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling About Sexism

Oprah talks with Mindy Kaling and Reese Witherspoon about sexism onscreen and off, and carving a pathway to parity.

It would be tough to pick two more blue-chip Hollywood names than Reese Witherspoon (star and producer of, most recently, the deliciously sinister, labyrinthine HBO series Big Little Lies and Mindy Kaling (whose six-season comedy, The Mindy Project, was the first TV show created by an Indian American). Both wield witchy magic alongside Oprah in the upcoming A Wrinkle in Time, the new film adaptation of the 1962 futuristic fantasy novel, directed by another boundary smasher, Ava DuVernay. When the “O” of O sat down with these two fearless changemakers, they immediately started discussing how far women have come— and where we must go next.

Oprah: I’m so excited to have a conversation with such beautiful, innovative, powerful women—my A Wrinkle in Time costars.

Reese Witherspoon: Thank you for having us! Sitting around and talking is our favorite thing to do.

Mindy Kaling: And it’s nice not to be in harnesses and wigs.

Reese Witherspoon joins Amal Clooney as speaker at women’s conference in San Jose

Reese Witherspoon, a leading Time’s Up proponent who has remade her Academy Award-winning career as an actress into the powerhouse producer of “Big Little Lies” and other series, will join Amal Clooney as part of a formidable lineup of keynote speakers at the Watermark Conference for Women Silicon Valley on Feb. 23.

Alas, the conference to be held at the San Jose Convention Center is sold out. It is expected to draw more than 6,500 attendees, making it the largest of its kind on the West Coast.

Witherspoon will be part of the lineup of speakers whom the conference calls “influential champions of women” offering up inspirational messages.

The other speakers include international human rights attorney Clooney and Jodi Kantor, the New York Times reporter who co-authored the first report on sexual misconduct allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

Kantor’s reporting helped spark the #TimesUp social media phenomenon and launch the Time’s Up anti-sexual harassment initiative, led by Witherspoon and other prominent women in the entertainment industry.

Meanwhile, last year’s Watermark speakers included Academy Award-winning actress Viola Davis, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and former secretaries of state Condoleezza Rice and Madeleine Albright.

Ann Barlow, chair of Watermark and West Coast president of Peppercomm, said in a statement that the conference comes at a particularly crucial time as the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements shine the national spotlight on gender equity and workplace culture.

“This is a critical time in our nation, with women at all levels standing up to be heard. We are proud to help elevate this national dialog,” Barlow said. “We hope that these outstanding speakers will inspire attendees to make their mark as leaders in their companies, careers and communities.”
