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.

Can’t wait! So happy she’s got another film lined up. Can’t wait to find out what she’ll film next though :tongue:

Sounds great though. I just wanted to ask something…on IMDB she also has a new movie in production called Sammy. Is she starring in that one as well? Because i haven’t read anything about it on your site, which is fabulous! :heart:

IMDb is quite unreliable. We have not heard anything of official nature that would indicate that Sammy was actually in production at the moment, which is why it is still listed in the rumored films section. 🙂
