New reports are suggesting Reese has been offered a role in Paul Thomas Anderson’s next film – below are two reports with further details:

Reese Witherspoon Offered A Role In Paul Thomas Anderson’s Untitled Relgion Pic? Shooting Starting In June?
Things have been pretty quiet on the Paul Thomas Anderson front and his new untitled religion picture, affectionately known as “The Master” by fans.

Loosely — or not so loosely — based on the life of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard (read our review of a very early draft of the script), we know that Philip Seymour Hoffman will play the messianic lead, Jeremy Renner will play Freddie Sutton, the drifter character that becomes The Master’s right hand man, and we know that Universal passed on the project and River Road is footing the bill (the company that produced Terrence Malick’s “Tree Of Life” and Doug Liman’s “Fair Game”; Honcho Bill Pohlad is also an investor in distributor Apparition, so don’t be surprised if the film ends up there).

Now comes a few more details from the latest issue of Production Weekly. According to their intel, Reese Witherspoon has been offered a role in the picture and the production is eyeing a June start date. Producing is John Lesher, Pohlad and Jo Anne Sellar.

June is next week if it actually starts on the first. Could the production really be this ready to go and no one’s really reported that yet?

April 20, 2010   •  Category: Role RumorsComments Off on Reese Witherspoon crime pic to big screen

Canadian indie producers Brightlight Pictures and Rhombus Media have joined up with Reese Witherspoon’s Type A Films to develop “Under the Bridge,” a true-crime feature about the 1997 murder of a 14 year-old Canadian high school student.

Witherspoon in 2007 initially optioned Rebecca Godfrey’s book about the gruesome murder of Reena Virk by eight fellow students under a small bridge in Saanich, B.C.

Virk’s death, and the subsequent trial and convictions of her slayers, provoked a national debate among Canadians over high school bullying and violence.

Vancouver-based Brightlight and Toronto-based Rhombus will partner with Type A Films to develop “Under the Bridge.”

Shawn Williamson and Stephen Hegyes will produce for Brightlight, Niv Fichman for Rhombus and Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Simpson will produce for Type A Films.

No word on creative elements and casting.

Brightlight and Rhombus most recently co-produced “Gunless,” a comic western starring Paul Gross and Sienna Guillory, and directed by William Philips, set for theatrical release here on April 30 by Alliance Films.

Tom Cruise and Reese Witherspoon are in talks to star together in the new rodeo love story Paper Wings.

The Mission Impossible hero would play a rodeo champion who falls for an up-and-coming country singer, played by Oscar-winning Reese, The LA Times reports.

The romantic drama was set up at New Line before moving to Sony, where it is being produced by Will Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment.

Italian filmmaker Gabriele Muccino, who worked with Will on Seven Pounds and The Pursuit Of Happyness, is among the directors who are in talks to helm the project.

Reese is an obvious choice for leading lady after her Oscar-winning turn as June Carter Cash in Walk The Line.

She recently signed up to star in The Pioneer Woman, about a woman who falls in love with a cowboy while on a cross-country road trip and winds up living on an Oklahoma ranch.

Columbia Pictures has made a deal to develop The Pioneer Woman, a romantic comedy that’s being shaped as a potential star vehicle for Reese Witherspoon. The studio has acquired rights to thepioneerwoman.com, a blog by Ree Drummond that details how a detour on a trip from L.A. to Chicago led her to Oklahoma. There, she met the cowboy of her dreams and transformed from spoiled city girl to domestic ranch wife.

February 14, 2010   •  Category: Role RumorsComments Off on Heigl to star in bounty hunter film

Katherine Heigl is set to star in bounty hunter movie One For The Money.

The film is based on Janet Evanovich’s novel of the same name.

Tom Rosenberg, Gary Lucchesi and Wendy Finerman will produce the movie.

As well as her role on Grey’s Anatomy, Katherine has parts in forthcoming movies Killers and Life As We Know It.

Universal and Reese Witherspoon are going into the pharmaceutical business.

The studio is developing Pharm Girl, an aspirational comedy centering on one woman’s odyssey through the drug industry.

Bad Santa scribes Glenn Ficarra and John Requa are writing the screenplay and in talks to direct. Witherspoon is producing via her Type A banner and attached to the lead role.

The project centers on a woman (Witherspoon) who gets a job at a pharma powerhouse but begins to see the underbelly of the industry as she rises through the company’s ranks. Tracy Falco and Maradith Frenkel are overseeing for the studio.

March 3, 2009   •  Category: Role RumorsComments Off on More on Downsizing

Alexander Payne is putting the finishing touches on the social satire Downsizing a script about small people, and has put together a big-name cast.

Paul Giamatti, Sacha Baron Cohen and Reese Witherspoon have all committed to star in the film, which would likely land at Fox Searchlight, where Payne has a first-look deal.

Giamatti, who previously teamed with the director on Sideways, is on board to star as a man low on money who decides he can have a much nicer life if he undergoes a process to shrink himself.

Witherspoon, also a Payne alum, whose career took off after starring in Election, would play a woman Giamatti meets on his journey as a small person. Cohen would play a pint-sized foreigner.

There are no deals in place for the three principals, and no negotiations will take place until Payne finishes his screenplay, which he is penning with Jim Taylor. Jim Burke is producing alongside Payne.

Unlike previous Payne pics, Downsizing would require considerable special effects and could push the budget out of Searchlight’s realm.

Project marks Payne’s first pic since “Sideways,” which was a Searchlight pic.

March 2, 2009   •  Category: Role RumorsComments Off on Alexander Payne Reunite? New Film Rumor: Downsizing

Rumor is Alexander Payne (director of Election) might be getting into a new film soon and it’s being strongly gossiped that Reese Witherspoon will be one of the stars. The film also may feature, Sacha Baron Cohen, Paul Giamatti and Meryl Streep. It’s all evidently in the preliminary stages but we’ll keep you informed. It could certainly be interesting with that cast/crew behind it!

“Nothing is locked down at this juncture, not even script, certainly not cast,” Wells’ source says. “[Payne is] still working on screenplay, although he’s close.”
