Yay, Variety reports that Reese has signed on to star and produce a new movie, Midnight!

Universal Pictures will develop a remake of the 1939 comedy Midnight as a star vehicle for Reese Witherspoon scripted by Michael Arndt, who won the Oscar for Little Miss Sunshine.

Stuber/Parent partners Mary Parent and Scott Stuber will produce with Witherspoon and her Type A Films partner Jennifer Simpson. Arndt hatched the idea, which prompted the producers to team.

Midnight has “long been one of my favorite films, and it is easily one of the best comedies of the ’30s,” Arndt said. “Being given the chance to update the film with Reese in the lead is simply a dream come true.”

In the original, Claudette Colbert starred as a destitute young woman in Paris who becomes a pawn when a wealthy man tries to get rid of the gigolo wooing his wife. John Barrymore also starred in the film that was directed by Mitchell Leisen and written by Charles Brackett and Billy Wilder.

The original was released by Paramount but became U property when the studio bought the pre-1948 Par library.

Project will not be next for Witherspoon, who’s deciding between several films for her next slot. She’s repped by CAA and Management 360 and Arndt by Endeavor.

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.”

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.

March 9, 2007   •  Category: Role RumorsComments Off on Bunny Lake Speculation

The press is heavily speculating on why Reese left the production of Bunny Lake. The LA Times is saying she dropped out because of emotional stress due to her divorce and that she did not feel emotionally invested in the role. TMZ reports that Reese was supposed to be given a complete script last week but instead was presented with a script with major sections of the movie outlined:

Last week, Reese was presented with what she thought would be a completed script, but turned out to be 80 pages that had major sections of the movie outlined but not written.

As the deadline approached for a summer shooting, Witherspoon exercised her option not to approve the incomplete script and withdrew as the star of the project. Reese worried about people who wouldn’t have a job shooting this summer. “She’s just as disappointed as anybody,” the source says. “She’s not working too.”

Reese’s representatives have not made an official statement regarding her reasons for departure from Bunny Lake Is Missing.



March 8, 2007   •  Category: Role RumorsComments Off on Reese Drops out of Bunny Lake

Variety reports that five weeks before production was scheduled to begin on the Spyglass-financed remake of Bunny Lake Is Missing, Reese Witherspoon abruptly dropped out of the film, much to the chagrin of director Joe Carnahan.

Beyond the late notice, the exit is surprising because Witherspoon and Type A Films partner Jennifer Simpson were aboard to produce with Mark Gordon.

Spyglass is scrambling to find an actress to replace Witherspoon, but chances are the start date will have to be pushed.

The Columbia Pictures release has been in the works for three years. Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Doug Wright, the movie is based on the 1965 Otto Preminger film about a woman who reports that her daughter Bunny Lake is missing — only to be confronted by charges that she never existed.
