Over the past few weeks we’ve been continuing to work on the Movies section of the Gallery, and today the A Wrinkle In Time category has been updated and completed! Lots of high quality posters have been added, along with HD screencaptures from various featurettes. Although not one of my favourite movies of Reese’s, there’s no denying the beautiful scenery, production, costumes and hair and make-up in the film.
Tons of other stills within the Movies section of the Gallery have been updated with high quality versions this weekend too – too many to list here, but ones we’re sure you’ll enjoy when you come across them!
And so the Movies section of the Gallery is now ‘complete’! Reese has such a fantastic filmography, and it’s been fun going through each movie and ensuring we have the most complete collection of photos to document her career. There’s still lots more to come in the Gallery – including TV appearance screencaptures and more from Reese’s advertising campaigns…
• Movies > A Wrinkle In Time
As part of our birthday celebrations this weekend, we’re updating the Gallery with some rare treats. In this batch, we have fabulous high quality out-takes from Reese’s 2018 portrait session for USA Today. These were taken in New York City last September, when Reese was promoting her book ‘Whiskey In A Teacup’. Reese looks super-chic and professional in her red jumpsuit and they’re a really great set of out-takes. Enjoy!
Our favourite actress celebrates her birthday today, and we’d like to wish Reese a very Happy Birthday! We hope she spends her day with loved ones, surrounded by her favourite things – coffee, books and dogs! She undoubtedly deserves it given the busy year she’s had – effectively taking over the world! We’re so proud of the work she’s doing, and can’t wait to see what she does next!
To celebrate Reese’s birthday today we’ve got a few batches of rare photos for you. The first of which is a rare high quality photo of Reese and her then-husband Ryan Phillippe at the opening of the Ghost Boutique in West Hollywood, way back in 1998. Reese was dressed in her signature colour – love the matching pink dress and earrings – and looked bright-eyed and fresh!
Millie Bobby Brown, Filmmaker Wanuri Kahiu Tackling ‘The Thing About Jellyfish’ for Universal
Millie Bobby Brown and Kenyan film director Wanuri Kahiu are teaming up to adapt acclaimed YA novel The Thing About Jellyfish by Ali Benjamin.
Universal has optioned the rights to the 2015 book published by Little Brown and is developing the adaptation with producers Gigi Pritzker and Rachel Shane of MWM Studios, Bruna Papandrea, and Reese Witherspoon.
The producers have been developing the project since 2017, when MWM, the company behind the upcoming Motherless Brooklyn from Edward Norton and Chadwick Boseman’s 17 Bridges, acquired the rights, hiring playwright Molly Smith Metzler to work on what would be her first feature script, which made the 2017 Black List.
Jellyfish tells the story of a young girl named Suzy as she enters seventh grade. When her former best friend dies in a drowning accident — and not believing her mother who says that sometimes “these things happen” — Suzy becomes convinced that the true cause of the tragedy was a rare jellyfish sting. She retreats into a silent world of her imagination and begins crafting a globe-trotting plan to prove her theory, with the book exploring the ideas of life and death, the frailty of friendships and the potential of hope right next door.
The book was Benjamin’s debut novel. It was not only a commercial success, but also a literary smash, named as a finalist for the 2015 National Book Award.
Brown is attached to play Suzy.
Adrian Alperovich and Melissa Rucker will executive produce on behalf of MWM Studios. Jeanne Snow will also exec produce. Senior exec vp production Erik Baiers and director of development Lexi Barta are overseeing on behalf of Universal.
Brown is one of the stars of Stranger Things, whose season three arrives July, and stars in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, which hits the big-screen May 31. She is repped by WME and Hansen Jacobson.
Kahiu wrote and directed the LGBTQ film Rafiki, which made history last year as being the first Kenyan film to screen at the Cannes Film Festival even as the movie was banned in her home country due to its themes. She is repped by CAA and Gotham Group.
Benjamin is repped by CAA while Metzler is repped by WME and Granview.
Elizabeth Arden & Reese Witherspoon Announce 2019 ‘March On’ For Women Campaign
Today [March 7th], Elizabeth Arden announces March On Pink, the next phase of the brand’s signature philanthropic campaign, through a $1 million pledge supporting UN Women in their work to advance women’s issues worldwide. To bolster awareness and efforts, a limited-edition lipstick signed by Reese Witherspoon in “Pink Punch” shade will be sold globally with 100% of the proceeds donated to UN Women.
Following last year’s limited-edition March On lipstick in Elizabeth Arden’s classic red, this year’s March On campaign ushers in a new, powerful pink shade. Inspired by the next generation of young women leaders and enacting great change, Pink Punch unapologetically embraces women’s boldness and femininity.
“It’s an incredible time to be a woman. The work we’re doing with Elizabeth Arden and UN Women is igniting real change and increasing possibilities for women globally,” says Reese Witherspoon, Elizabeth Arden’s Storyteller-in-Chief and female advocate. “I’m in this for all women – for my daughter, my mother, and all the amazing women in my life.”Continue reading this entry »
Way back in December when we had our Advent Calendar, I added these super-rare photos to the Gallery but forgot to post about them here!
Back in the spring of 2014, Reese attended a book signing party for Robin Berman’s book ‘Permission To Parent’. Reese provided praise for the book, saying that it “should be present in every delivery room”! Reese looked lovely in a little navy dress at the event, held in Pacific Palisades in California. Enjoy these previously unseen rare photos exclusively in our Gallery!
