Reese Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea have joined forces to launch a new production banner, Pacific Standard. The duo will fold a number of projects into the partnership from their pre-existing shingles Type A Films and Make Movies.

Pacific Standard has several properties prepped to go out to the market. One of which is WILD, the soon-to-be published novel by Cheryl Strayed, a powerful and honest memoir that tells the story of an 1100 mile solo hike that breaks down a young woman reeling from catastrophe—and brings her back to life.

Witherspoon and Papandrea look forward to utilizing the relationships they have forged with filmmakers, actors and writers to make smart, character-driven, commercial films both large and small.

“I’ve always been impressed by Bruna’s taste and her skills as a producer. I’m very excited to be working with her. It’s a pleasure to collaborate with someone so smart, fun and formidable.” Witherspoon comments.

“In Reese I have found a like-minded and incredibly passionate partner who genuinely shares the same goals. “I’ve had a wonderful time producing movies independently but I couldn’t be more excited about the company and brand we will create together,” notes Papandrea.

Witherspoon has been active in a producing capacity since LEGALLY BLONDE II. Her Type A credits include FOUR CHRISTMASES and the independent feature PENELOPE. She acquired Peggy Lee’s life rights and partnered with Marc Platt on a biographical film that Nora Ephron will write for Fox 2000. She also set up the original comedies WHO INVITED HER? in partnership with Gary Foster at Dreamworks, MY HUSBAND’S WIFE with Ryan Seacrest’s company at Universal and the Courtney Hunt independent RULE #1 with Brad Epstein at Emmet/Furla.

Papandrea recently produced the Summit Entertainment financed WARM BODIES, written and directed by Jonathan Levine, starring Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer, Her development slate includes the upcoming novel THE STATISTICAL PROBABILITY OF LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT by Jennifer Smith and Emily Giffin’s best selling book LOVE THE ONE YOU’RE WITH.

Reese The New Yorker article was written by a hack. Please know that gloming you in a list of actors such as Keanu and such made absolutely no sense. It was ill conceived, incorrect, badly written, and there are few writers out there who get it right. They could never imagine what it takes to really be an actor and accomplish the great things and roles you’ve done. Never take what critics say personally, unless they are being kind. If they’re not. Fuck ’em they suck. You are a star forever don’t forget that

October 2014 I read WILD and loved it! Thanks for making the movie!
In November I read CALL ME CAPTAIN by SUSAN SCOTT and i think it would make a terrific movie!! It is a moving true story of adventure and the making of a courageous and strong woman.
Who has not, at some time in their life, wanted to just sail away to the South Pacific? Mid life problems, storms at sea, boat repairs, ocean creatures hold interest, A love story. All true!

I saw your interview on 60 Minutes. You’re looking for new material, right? Try my novel [very fast read] ROSIE’S GRINGO PALACE. Have been told by several screen writers that this would make either a good movie – or a 6-part TV miniseries. The novel is funny, poignant, deals with abuse and, mostly with the empowerment of women. [The Gringo Palace is a grocery store in a ghetto area.

I was trying to find out how to submit something to Pacific Standard. Loved the interview on 60 minutes and listening to what their focus is, interesting stories on complicated women etc., I realized my sister’s book would be a great story for their company to produce.
Can you tell me what email to write at Pacific Standard?
Thank You

I admire Reese for her work & for her character as I see it. I am sorry that the movie Wild was selectively eliminated from theaters in Vallejo, Calif, Solano County Calif, presumably because someone thought the demographics did not fit the type & quality of the film. We did drive to another county, specifically to see the movies. & as expected, it was great. Can’t afford to miss Reese’s films.
