As promised, Glamour Reese Witherspoon has provided you with high quality scans of Reese’s awesome cover & spread in the August 24th issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine. In the article they state Reese will begin Four Christimases in the Winter, and next year the longly delayed Our Family Trouble (aka Bell Witch). Regular visitors will know that Our Family Trouble has been on and off since late 2005. Four Christmases, in which Reese would co-star alongside Vince Vaugn was just recently annouced in July.
Also an interesting mention in the article, Rendition co-producer Mark Martin says he initially had actress Cate Blanchett in mind for the role of Isabella El-Ibrahim, but Steve Golin, one of the producing partners, says he saw Reese in the role right away. He said “The movie is about somebody you love disapearing, and Reese is such a beloved actress – she’s such a girl-next-door type, only more beautiful – it makes what she goes through more relatable.” Wouldn’t you agree? 🙂 There was also a new movie still from Rendition in the piece. Happy viewing!
Bad news – Penelope has been delayed again. The film was originally supposed to be released this April, then the studio pushed it back to August 17, which now has been pulled to an unknown release date. No word on when the new release is, but hopefully we’ll hear something soon! I know we’ve been itching to see this film for such a long time already.
As reported yesterday, the trailer for Rendition was released today and can now be downloaded in high definition over at MovieFone! Be sure to check it out; it looks really, really good and Reese’s scenes are very powerful. I truly can’t wait to see her performance!
We also added high quality screencaptures of Reese and updated the Rendition page with new information regarding the film.

Comments Off on Rendition Trailer Tomorrow!
While watching Entertainment Tonight this evening they showed a brief clip of Reese at the Avon press conference and also a brief preview of the trailer for Reese’s upcoming thriller, Rendition. The full trailer will premiere tomorrow on ET, and most likely it will make it’s debut online as well. I’m speechless over what I saw because this will most certainly be a Reese Witherspoon performance we cannot miss!
If anyone was able to record either pieces of footage and would consider donating it to Glamour Reese Witherspoon, please send us an e-mail.
It looks like Reese is in negotiations to star in yet another new movie; this time for New Line Cinema’s comedy Four Christmases. Hollywood Reporter reports:
Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon are in final negotiations to star in New Line Cinema’s comedy Four Christmases. In the film, Vaughn and Witherspoon will play a couple who struggle to visit all four of their divorced parents’ homes over the Christmas holiday.
The project is based on a screenplay by Matt Allen and Caleb Wilson. Producing are Spyglass Entertainment’s Gary Barber, Roger Birnbaum and Jon Glickman. Vaughn and Witherspoon are also in discussions to produce.
New Line production president Toby Emmerich and production executives Mark Kaufman and Michael Disco will oversee the project for the company.
The very first stills from Reese Witherspoon’s upcoming film Rendition have been discovered! Reese stars as alongside some great actors such as Jake Gyllenhaal, Meryl Streep, Peter Sarsgaard, and Alan Arkin in the movie due for release on October 12, 2007 in the States. A huge thanks to Frederik from Simply Streep for sending these in!
Reese will play Isabella El-Ibrahim, the pregnant American wife of an Egyptian-born chemical engineer whose family emigrated to the States in the mid 1980s, who is shipped off to a third world country for interrogation after he is deemed a political prisoner in our post-9/11 world. Alan Arkin will play a senator who tries to help Reese’s character in her search for her missing husband. The investigation eventually threatens the senator’s position in Washington.

Comments Off on ‘Honey West’ The Movie
The New York Post reports that writer Leslie Dixon (The Thomas Crown Affair) is warm to the idea of a big-screen version of the short lived television series Honey West for 20th Century Fox. The fox who wants in on the honey? Reese Witherspoon.
Honey West was a smoking-hot private eye with a lipstick walkie-talkie, earrings that doubled as smoke bombs and a way with judo. She was like Honor Blackman’s Pussy Galore in Goldfinger – but even sexier!
Witherspoon’s screen characters – even the dizzy-but-not-dumb heroine of Legally Blonde – are famously determined. She won the Oscar for her true grit performance as June Carter Cash in Walk the Line. She does not suffer fools, on- or off-screen. She once told me, “I’ll never play a victim.” Reese could bring a lot of no-nonsense sizzle to this project. Writer Dixon wants to keep the movie retro – ’60s – and true to the dark, rather perverse feel of the show.
There’s many a slip twixt the concept and the first day of shooting, but Witherspoon is said to be looking super-sexy and dynamic these days; looking in fact very likely to pull a gun and kick your butt.
There is no official word from Ms. Witherspoon or her representatives so for now it’s only hear say, but will be sure to report if we hear otherwise!

Comments Off on Rendition Movie Preview
Anwar El-Ibrahimi (Omar Metwalley) is an Egyptian-born man who is suspected of terrorism. When he disappears while on a flight from South Africa to Washington, D.C., his American wife (Reese Witherspoon) makes her way to Washington to try to uncover the reasons behind his disappearance.
As she is searching for answers, CIA analyst Doug Freeman (Jake Gyllenhaal) is stationed at a detention facility somewhere outside the United States. When he sees the unorthodox interrogation of El-Ibrahimi, he questions his assignment and becomes caught up in the struggle to secure the man’s release.
Rendition is directed by Gavin Hood, who previously attained recognition for helming the Academy Award-winning Tsotsi. This is his first effort at a major motion picture release, and it should be fascinating to see its reception. It’s a movie that is packed with talent, including Academy Award winners Witherspoon, Meryl Streep and Alan Arkin as well as recent Oscar nominee Gyllenhaal. It’s likely to be positioned as an awards contender as it nears release.
