November 17, 2011   •  Category: Role RumorsComments Off on Amy Adams offered “Trouble With The Curve”

A few days ago I posted the news that Reese was being considered for Clint Eastwood’s upcoming film, Trouble With The Curve, and Variety now confirm that Amy Adams has been offered the role. We’ll keep you posted on any further developments!

Eastwood pitches ‘Curve’ to Amy Adams

Clint Eastwood’s next co-star looks to be Amy Adams, who has been offered the role of his estranged daughter by Warner Bros. in “Trouble With The Curve.”

Robert Lorenz, Eastwood’s Malpaso partner, is in talks to make his directorial debut with the Warner Bros. pic written by Randy Brown.

Story centers on Eastwood’s character, an aging baseball scout who’s losing his sight and decides to take a road trip to Atlanta with his daughter to check out a hot prospect. Malpaso will produce.

Michele Weissler, who brought the project to Malpaso, will also have some producing duties.

The studio was waiting for Eastwood’s deal to close before looking for the female lead, but sources say that Sandra Bullock and Adams were being eyed from the beginning.

Bullock’s schedule is full, so the studio focused on Adams, but her schedule also looks busy.

Adams can be seen next in Disney’s “The Muppets,” which bows Nov. 23, and she is currently filming WB’s “Man of Steel.”

She is repped by WME and Brillstein Entertainment.

November 13, 2011   •  Category: Role RumorsComments Off on Sandra Bullock Won’t Have ‘Trouble With The Curve,’ But Amy Adams & Reese Witherspoon Being Eyed

With “J. Edgar” now in theaters (sidenote: don’t believe the vitriolic reviews, it’s uneven, but lots to admire) Clint Eastwood has a bit of free time. His next film is supposed to be “A Star Is Born,” but with the lead star, Beyoncé preggers, production has been put on hold. So what’s he gonna do instead? Take a lead role in “Trouble With The Curve,” the directorial debut of his longtime colleague, friend and Malpaso Productions pal Robert Lorenz. While Sandra Bullock was one of the first names to be looking at the co-starring role, she has moved on and now two more names have surfaced.

Producers are now “considering” Amy Adams and Reese Witherspoon for the role, but whether that means they’re still on a list in someone’s desk or being actively pursued is not quite clear. Penned by Randy Brown, the film has a great concept, centering on an aging baseball scout, who is slowly going blind, on a final trip with his daughter to check out a hot prospect. Frankly, either actress could do the role justice, though we may prefer Adams in the part. But both can do drama well, would likely easily go toe to toe with the grizzled Eastwood. Either way, it seems the filmmakers are determined to get an Oscar calibre name alongside Clint.

The project is set up over at Warner Bros., but no word yet on when it might roll.

November 13, 2011   •  Category: Role RumorsComments Off on Reese Witherspoon and Jason Segel to star in “Sex Tape”?

Sony Pictures is starting to get hot and heavy with Sex Tape, the Kate Angelo-scripted comedy that the studio acquired in June in a seven-figure spec deal. The script’s about a married couple, Annie and Jay, who take a night off from their kids, decide to get adventurous and spice things up by making a private sex tape. When they wake up, the tape is gone and they go on a desperate search to find it.

I’m told that Nick Stoller is in talks to direct the film, and that the studio wants Jason Segel and Reese Witherspoon to play the couple. I’ve been hearing this for awhile, and now the offers are going out. The comedy will be produced by Escape Artists partners Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch, who came up with the idea. Stoller co-wrote The Muppets with Segel.

November 13, 2011   •  Category: Role RumorsComments Off on Ryan Seacrest to Make Film Producing Debut with Reese Witherspoon

The romantic comedy is being penned by “Grey’s Anatomy” scribe Krista Vernoff.

The busiest man in Hollywood just got a little busier.

Ryan Seacrest is producing his first film, a romantic comedy with co-producer Reese Witherspoon. The still untitled project, which will be produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions and Witherspoon’s Type A Films in association with Universal, will be written by Grey’s Anatomy scribe Krista Vernoff.

Seacrest is already a major producer for Universal parent’s television division, for which he produces E!’s Kardashian franchise and serves as host and managing editor of E! News.

The American Idol host and radio star noted his desire to venture into the film world as well as the scripted TV world when profiled by The Hollywood Reporter in April. The latter became a reality when he sold a small-screen adaptation of The Nanny Diaries with Harvey Weinstein into development at ABC in August.

For her part, Witherspoon is garnering buzz for her upcoming role in 20th Century Fox’s This Means War, where she juggles relationships with two CIA agents – played by Chris Pine and Tom Hardy – who pull out all the stops to battle for her affection. The movie is scheduled to hit theaters on Feb. 17.

News of their romantic comedy project comes mere days after Vernoff had sold a legal drama with a supernatural twist to CBS. The project pairs Vernoff, whose other small screen credits include Charmed and Private Practice, with producers Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly.

Seacrest, Witherspoon and Vernoff are all repped by CAA.

November 13, 2011   •  Category: Role RumorsComments Off on Reese to produce and star in “Rule #1”?

“Look at you. You have a baby … in a bar!” That line, from Reese Witherspoon’s 2002 comedy Sweet Home Alabama, still make me laugh. And now the Oscar winner might have to pretend to be kind to another baby for the benefit of a big-screen comedy.

According to a release, Witherspoon is coming aboard the feature Rule #1 with the intention of shaping it into a starring vehicle. Even better, she has signed Oscar-nominated director Courtney Hunt (Frozen River) to helm the comedy. Witherspoon has said she’ll produce Rule #1 through her Type A banner, collaborating with Brad Epstein of Panther Films and the business venture of Emmett/Furla Films.

If Witherspoon headlines the pic, she’ll play 34-year-old Diana McBride, a woman coping with her OCD who agrees to take in an unpredictable young stranger – who happens to have a newborn baby – in an effort to face her anxieties. Ultimately, McBride’s plan is to win back her estranged husband by convincing him she can handle her chaotic existence.

August 2, 2011   •  Category: Role RumorsComments Off on Reese Witherspoon Joins Disney’s ‘Wish List’

Reese Witherspoon has attached herself to star in Wish List, a Disney comedy about an overly imaginative little girl who makes ten wishes at a wishing well. They don’t come true because her coin never reached the bottom and eventually she loses her inner child and becomes a full grown and ambitious career woman. Some 25 years later, the coin is dislodged, falls to the bottom and she has to deal with the ramifications of 10 kid wishes coming true all at once. The script’s being written by Randi Mayem Singer. Wish List is being produced by Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray, who most recently produced Secretariat for the studio. The comedy was initially developed as a vehicle for a male star, but now it’s being retooled for Witherspoon, who was last seen in Water for Elephants. She next stars in the McG-directed This Means War opposite Chris Pine and Tom Hardy for Fox. Witherspoon’s repped by CAA and Management 360, Singer by ICM.

June 9, 2011   •  Category: Role RumorsComments Off on Reese Witherspoon Attached to Star in Wedding-Themed Movie for DreamWorks

The studio has picked up the romantic comedy pitch “Who Invited Her?” about a woman who crashes a bachelor party getaway.

Wedding-themed movies are all the rage in Hollywood — see the success of Bridesmaids and The Hangover Part 2 — and now DreamWorks and Reese Witherspoon are trying a knot.

DreamWorks has picked up Who Invited Her? a romantic comedy pitch from Sascha Rothschild that has Witherspoon attached to star and produce. Gary Foster and Russ Krasnoff will also produce via their Krasnoff Foster Entertainment banner.

Witherspoon is a producer on This Means War, in which she also stars. The movie, which also stars Chris Pine and Tom Hardy, will be released in February.

February 10, 2011   •  Category: Role RumorsComments Off on The status of “The Pioneer Woman”

Last year it was reported that Reese would be fronting a new movie entitled The Pioneer Woman, and later that year a writer was attached. However, we’ve heard nothing more about it since then, and Ree Drummond, the author of the book the film is based on, says she hasn’t heard anything either:

Ree & Reese: Ree Drummond, whose blog, ThePioneerWoman.com, led to the publication in 2009 of the best seller The Pioneer Woman Cooks, now has a best-selling memoir, The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels — A Love Story. It lands at No. 20 [on USA TODAY’s Best-Selling Books list]. Drummond’s new book tells how she met and married her husband, Ladd. They live on a working ranch in Oklahoma with their four kids. Last year, Columbia Pictures said it had optioned The Pioneer Woman with Reese Witherspoon in mind to star. Drummond says she hasn’t heard anything since then. Is Witherspoon right for the part? Drummond says, “I’m kind of an Amazon woman compared to her, but I couldn’t be more pleased.”
