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.

Icelandic movie producer Sigurjón Sighvatsson is to produce a movie by Irish director Jim Sheridan, possibly to star Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon and Oscar-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio.

The movie will be a remake of Brödre (Brothers) by Danish director Susanne Bier, released in 2004. David Benioff will write the script, who is one of the highest-earning screenplay writers in Hollywood, as stated in Fréttabladid.

Some of Hollywood’s most famous actors and actresses have declared their interest in participating in the project, including Leonardo DiCaprio and Reese Witherspoon, but the cast has not been decided on yet.

Sighvatsson explained to Fréttabladid that it can be difficult to get a high-profile cast together, “Many of the biggest stars are booked many months, even years, in advance.”

April 19, 2007   •  Category: "Rendition"Comments Off on Rendition’s New Release Date

Thanks to walktheline for the heads up.



April 19, 2007   •  Category: Films & ProjectsComments Off on Freeway DVD Re-release

Freeway has been re-released on DVD and may be ordered at Amazon. Here are excerpts from JoBlo’s DVD review:

Video: Presented in 16×9 “widecreen.” (Seriously, it says “widecreen” on the box.) As for the transfer, it’s still the same, non-remastered version of the film, and victim to all the grain and imperfections.

Audio: Dobly Digital 5.1 surround, THX enhanced. This is one part of the DVD that comes through.

Have you been waiting for Freeway to get the Special Edition treatment? Congratulations, you get to keep waiting! This is nothing more than a cheap re-release of the exact same DVD from 1997. C’mon, Lionsgate; you could’ve at least sprung for a real DVD menu.

Director’s Narration: Wow. This DVD is so old, they weren’t even calling ‘em commentaries yet! Writer/director Matthew Bright has plenty to say about the movie (dubbing it an “artsploitation film”), as well as some interesting tidbits on being plucked from obscurity to make his debut feature, but overall a pretty boring commentary.

Penelope the novel was recently released. It is adapted from the screenplay of the movie and  none other than Ms. Witherspoon wrote the introduction for it and thanks to Elizabeth, we have it for your reading pleasure! Read on for Reese’s touching introduction and check out Amazon for your own copy! 🙂

I loved reading fairy tales as a child—or better yet, having them read to me—and now my daughter loves them too! The adventures of those beleaguered princesses, so often the youngest, most beautiful, and least appreciated, were magical. Fairy tales tell us who we are and how to live. That’s why they are so powerful. It’s not often that a brand-new tale appears in the world. So imagine my surprise and delight when I discovered . . . Penelope!

Sprung from the brilliantly original brain of Leslie Caveny, Penelope appeared on my desk one fine spring day. I loved the story from the moment I read it, and Penelope came to life in my imagination long before she stepped on-screen.

March 14, 2007   •  Category: "Rendition"Comments Off on Rendition Script Review by Emanuel Levy

Emotionally riveting and politically relevant, Rendition is a daring film that isn’t afraid to ask tough questions. With an all-star cast that includes Oscar winners Reese Witherspoon and Meryl Streep and Oscar nominee Jake Gyllenhaal, Rendition paints a vast yet intimate canvas of a world in crisis and a family in peril.

Thematically, the film bears some resemblance to Syriana and Bourne Identity, as it’s both a cautionary tale and a taut political thriller. Rendition walks a fine line between interrogation and torture, between working for the greater good in a post 9/11 world and violating basic codes of decency–between fighting terrorism and becoming a terrorist.

The film’s protagonist is Anwar El-Ibraim, a Canadian scientist of Egyptian decent. Caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, he is about to find out what happens when that line is crossed. Anwar is anxious to get home and see his family after a business trip in Rio de Janeiro. Unfortunately, his homecoming is delayed.

March 13, 2007   •  Category: Role RumorsComments Off on Bunny is Officially Missing

Joe Carnahan, the director of Bunny Lake is the first official source to comment on Reese’s reasons for departure from the movie:

Scuttlebutt: How about NOTHING. How about a situation where the press tries to stir it up. These things happen. Movies go away every day. Reese is dealing with a lot of stuff in her life. So am I. We were running up against it as far as time for prep and shooting and scripting, etc. I had already commited to White Jazz and the longer we stretched Bunny the more in jeopardy the WJ schedule became. And there was just no way I could let that happen. I need a nice extended prep period for that flick.

And now I’ve got it.

That’s it guys. I wish there were some truly tasty bits of gossip but there just aren’t. Sorry.

Paulette: " Is she as pretty as you?"
