Reese Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea’s three-year-old production company Pacific Standard is making a foray into broadcast television with an overall deal at ABC Studios. The two-year pact, which is exclusive in broadcast, comes on the heels of Pacific Standard’s first TV greenlight, for limited series Big Little Lies, which recently received a straight-to-series order at HBO. The adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s best-selling novel, written by David E Kelley, stars Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman.
Under the deal with ABC Studios, which is run by EVP Patrick Moran, Witherspoon and Papandrea plan to hire a dedicated TV executive to work alongside Pacific Standard creative executive Jeanne Snow.
ABC Studios, home of such female-centered dramas as Scandal, How To Get Away With Murder, recently departed Revenge and the upcoming Quantico, toplined by Priyanka Chopra, is a good fit for Witherspoon and Papandrea, who have built their company with the goal of helping make films with strong female leads. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Patrick and his team at ABC Studios, a company who genuinely share our goal of creating great roles for women, ” Witherspoon and Papandrea said.
Since Pacific Standard Films’ launch in 2012, the company produced features Wild, which earned Witherspoon an Oscar nomination, David Fincher’s thriller Gone Girl, as well as the Warner Bros. summer comedy Hot Pursuit. The company also will produce Disney’s Tink, a live-action take on the classic Peter Pan character Tinker Bell, in which Witherspoon will star in the title role, and Pale Blue Dot at Fox Searchlight. Pacific Standard’s feature development slate also includes Ashley’s War at Fox 2000, Luckiest Girl Alive at Lionsgate, and All Is Not Forgotten at Warner Bros.
In TV, the company has Supreme Courtship, an adaptation of the book by Christopher Buckley, set up at Sony Pictures TV’s TriStar Television.
“As evidenced by Reese and Bruna’s award-winning film track record, their eye for material is unparalleled,” Moran said. “We’re very excited to be their television partners.”
The Gallery has been updated with another batch of HD film screencaptures, this time from Reese’s most recent release – Hot Pursuit. This is a world apart from her other recent films, and although Reese is her typically funny self, it’s not one of her best films unfortunately. However, enjoy the screencaptures!
To conclude our run of screencaptures from Reese’s impressive 2012-2014 film projects, we have HD screencaptures from Devil’s Knot. I felt the film lacked something overall, but Reese again gave a great performance and she was almost unrecognisable in the role. What did you think of the movie?

This is my new (equal) favourite Reese film, she gave such a moving and heartfelt performance as Cheryl and I liked the way the story was told through flashbacks as Cheryl recalled her memories – it is an absolute must-see!!

Comments Off on Reese Witherspoon At Center Of ‘All Is Not Forgotten’ Novel Deal By Warner Bros
Reese Witherspoon At Center Of ‘All Is Not Forgotten’ Novel Deal By Warner Bros
Warner Bros late last night closed a significant preemptive acquisition of the GG Walker novel All Is Not Forgotten. Warner Bros president of Creative Development and Worldwide Production Greg Silverman was at the center of this one himself, with Reese Witherspoon and her Pacific Standard producing partner Bruna Papandrea producing. Deal happened right after the book sold to St. Martin’s Press following a five house bidding battle, with plans to publish spring, 2017. The author used a pseudonym but she is Wendy Walker, the author of Four Wives and Social Lives, which also were published by St. Martin’s Press. The movie deal was in the mid six figure against $1 million range.
Warner Bros will be getting more aggressive on the book front, and it seems to make a good deal of sense given the outsized success American Sniper meant to the studio. The studio also wants more with Witherspoon and Papandrea, who’ve proven themselves book savvy producers who last year produced both Gone Girl and Wild. They’ve been a catalyst for other movie deals including Fox 2000’s acquisition of Ashley’s War, the Tzemach Lemmon book about an elite group of women who fought alongside Green Berets and Army Rangers in Afghanistan.
Right now, Witherspoon is producing, but Warner Bros will court her to play a key role. Book is an adult thriller about a teenage girl in picturesque suburban Connecticut who is brutally attacked and raped, and the secrets that emerge during the course of the investigation. Witherspoon will be courted to play the girl’s mother, who decides with her husband to give their daughter a pill to erase her short term memory so she won’t relive the trauma of the rape.
This is Warner Bros’ third project with Witherspoon. They are developing the Maureen Sherry novel Opening Belle and the recently published Second Life by SJ Watson. CAA reps Witherspoon and Watson, who is represented for publishing by Wendy Sherman Associates.
Today the Gallery has been updated with Inherent Vice photos – HQ stills, trailer screencaptures, posters, and HD film screencaptures. Reese had a small role as Penny in this comedy-mystery directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and co-starring Joaquin Phoenix. It was an intriguing film … it was refreshing to see Reese in such a different type of film, and she was great in her few short scenes – her character almost reminded me of Tracy Flick! Not to mention seeing her reunited with Joaquin Phoenix! Browse through the photos in our Gallery, and be sure to watch the movie itself.
When private eye Doc Sportello’s ex-old lady suddenly shows up, out of nowhere, with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend (whom she just happens to be in love with) and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him into a looney bin…well, easy for her to say.
It’s the tail end of the psychedelic ’60s and paranoia is running the day. Doc knows that “love” is another one of those words going around at the moment, like “trip” or “groovy,” that’s being way too overused – except this one usually leads to trouble. With a cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, LAPD Detectives, a tenor sax player working undercover – and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists. Part surf noir, part psychedelic romp – all Thomas Pynchon.
The Gallery has been updated with photos from Reese’s 2012 movie Mud, including posters, additional HQ stills, and HD screencaptures from the film itself. Reese played the role of Juniper in this ‘coming of age’ drama set in the South, and the film is definitely worth a watch.
“Mud” is an adventure about two boys, Ellis and his friend Neckbone, who find a man named Mud hiding out on an island in the Mississippi. Mud describes fantastic scenarios—he killed a man in Texas and vengeful bounty hunters are coming to get him. He says he is planning to meet and escape with the love of his life, Juniper, who is waiting for him in town. Skeptical but intrigued, Ellis and Neckbone agree to help him. It isn’t long until Mud’s visions come true and their small town is besieged by a beautiful girl with a line of bounty hunters in tow.

Comments Off on Abi Morgan To Adapt ‘Ashley’s War’ For Fox 2000 And Reese Witherspoon
Abi Morgan To Adapt ‘Ashley’s War’ For Fox 2000 And Reese Witherspoon
Fox 2000 has set Abi Morgan to adapt the Gayle Tzemach Lemmon book Ashley’s War: The Untold Story Of A Team of Women Soldiers On The Special Ops Battlefield. The studio, led by Elizabeth Gabler, won an auction in March at a time when several military-themed books were selling after the outsized grosses of American Sniper. Pacific Standard’s Reese Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea are producing with Natalie Krinsky, and the expectation is that Witherspoon will play a major role. Book tells the story of the creation by the U.S. Army Special Operations Command of a pilot program that allowed elite women soldiers on the battlefield with Green Berets and Army Rangers in Afghanistan in 2010. The unit, CST-2, brought together a hand-picked group of women from the Army, and that included 1st Lt. Ashley White, who would become the first CST member killed in action.
Morgan is best known for scripting the Steve McQueen-directed Shame, and the Meryl Streep-as-Maggie Thatcher drama The Iron Lady. She followed with the Sarah Gavron-directed Suffragette, which stars Streep, Helena Bonham Carter, Carey Mulligan and Brendan Gleeson, with Focus releasing the film on October 23. She co-wrote the Suzanne Bier-directed Rules Of Inheritance, is adapting Shakespeare’s Taming Of The Shrew and is working on the feature version of Little House On The Prairie for producer Scott Rudin and Sony.
Morgan is repped by CAA and Independent Talent Group.

Comments Off on Reese Witherspoon Developing ‘Napkin Notes’ Memoir for the Screen
Reese Witherspoon Developing ‘Napkin Notes’ Memoir for the Screen
Reese Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea’s Pacific Standard banner is developing a film adaptation for New Line of Garth Callaghan’s memoir “Napkin Notes: Make Lunch Meaningful, Life Will Follow.”
Witherspoon and Papandrea will produce “Napkin Notes,” which New Line optioned last September. Mike Binder, whose credits include “Black or White,” “Reign Over Me” and “The Upside of Anger,” has come on to adapt the script. Toby Emmerich, Andrea Johnston and Richard Brener are overseeing for New Line.
Callaghan’s book, published by HarperCollins, details how he began writing short inspirational notes on napkins to put in his daughter Emma’s lunchbox daily to connect with his daughter. The practice took on far more significance after Callaghan was diagnosed first with kidney cancer and subsequently received four other cancer diagnoses.
“Napkin Notes” is Pacific Standard’s ninth development project. Witherspoon and Papandea formed Pacific Standard in 2012 in order to remedy the absence of movies with female protagonists. They have since produced “Wild,” “Gone Girl” and “Hot Pursuit.”
The banner has been developing Jessica Knoll’s “Luckiest Girl Alive” at Lionsgate, Gayle Tzemach Lemmon’s “Ashley’s War” at Fox 2000, S.J. Watson’s thriller novel “Second Life” at Warner Bros. and Maureen Sherry Klinsky’s upcoming novel “Opening Belle” with an eye to Witherspoon starring in the Wall Street comedy. Pacfiic Standard is also developing an adaptation of the novel “Big Little Lies,” “The Engagements,” “Pennyroyal’s Princess Boot Camp” and “The Outliers.”
Witherspoon is repped by CAA and Rick Yorn at LBI Entertainment. CAA, which packaged the deal, represents Pacific Standard and Callaghan.
News about “Napkin Notes” was first reported by the Tracking Board.
Reese has been promoting Hot Pursuit in Mexico this week, along with her co-star Sofia Vergara. On Monday they attended a premiere for the film, with Reese wearing a red Yves Saint Laurent dress, and the day after a photocall for the film was held, with Reese opting for a cream Thierry Mugler Resort dress with Louboutin heels and jewelry by Jennifer Fisher.
Photos from both events can be found in our Gallery. Check out Reese’s pics from her travels at her Instagram page. And further down this post are video interviews and footage from the events.
