Add yet another live-action project to Disney’s growing pile: the studio is developing a live-action film for Peter Pan’s magical sidekick Tinker Bell, who has earned a rather large following in her own right with various animated films and merchandise. In addition to the announcement of this new development, we’ve also learned that Disney has performed a little casting magic, landing Reese Witherspoon for the title role — which is some seriously perfect casting.

Reese Witherspoon and Fox Searchlight scored a big commercial and critical success with Wild, so it makes sense that the two would team up for the actress’ next big drama. Imagine Gravity, but what happens after Sandra Bullock goes home — that’s similar to the plot of Pale Blue Dot, Witherspoon’s next project with the studio.

SNL Ranked: Reese Witherspoon Doesn’t Disappoint, But This Episode Sure Does

Reese Witherspoon has had an interesting time lately: the producer of Gone Girl, nominated for an Oscar for her performance in Wild, and the recent star of the not-so-funny Hot Pursuit. But Witherspoon is funny — she’s also immensely charming and versatile (obviously), and she knows how to light up a room. Unfortunately, she’s not really the star of this week’s SNL, suffering from the same fate that befell Scarlett Johansson in last week’s underwhelming episode. Throughout the bulk of the episode, Witherspoon is more like a supporting player than the star, and I’m growing concerned about how terrible these female-hosted episodes have been lately and what that says about SNL in general.

SNL Forces the Cast to Apologize to Their Actual Mothers

Last night’s generally unremarkable episode of SNL peaked early when it took advantage of its proximity to Mother’s Day to do something kind of remarkable. As part of her opening monologue, guest host Reese Witherspoon declared that the show was going to mark the occasion by bringing each cast member out with his or her mother...and then forcing them to apologize for their childhood transgressions.

‘Hot Pursuit’ Review: Don’t Race to the Theater For This Crummy Action Comedy

Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara are talented actors, but they’re not miracle workers. Hot Pursuit asks them to perform the cinematic equivalent of turning water into wine by wringing laughs out of 90 minutes of shrill screaming matches and goofy costumes. The movie ends with what’s essentially an admission of guilt: end credit outtakes, which are almost always an indication that a comedy isn’t funny and knows it and is trying to hide that fact by sending the audience out of the theater with a couple desperate snickers and a warm feeling over the fact that the actors had a good time making the film. Good for them. Hot Pursuit is still a clunker.

SNL proved a bit less mightier than The Avengers this past weekend, in spite of a few inspired bits with host Scarlett Johansson, but with only two installments of the 40th anniversary season left, Reese Witherspoon is in Hot Pursuit. Watch her and Aidy Bryant ditch out for a gorgeous spring day in our first look at the year’s penultimate SNL!

April Fools’ Day is an occasion marked by silliness. Many websites choose to celebrate by tricking their readers with goofy pranks. But for every one of these hoaxes that’s funny, there are ten more that are terrible (plus our budget would not allow us to turn the site into ScreenFlush, the #1 place on the Internet dedicated to movie toilets, for a single day). So instead, let’s honor some humor professionals; the men and women who’ve made the best comedies of the last 25 years.

‘Hot Pursuit’ Trailer: Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara Do the Odd Couple Buddy Comedy Thing

In case you weren’t aware, there’s a new buddy comedy starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara as a mismatched pair on the run. That film is called Hot Pursuit, and it now has an official trailer. But there’s something sort of familiar about this: straight-laced law enforcement official teams with loud-mouthed cohort in a plot that involves a dangerous drug cartel. Oh right, that’s very similar to The Heat, Paul Feig’s comedy starring Melissa McCarthy as said loud mouth and Sandra Bullock as the uptight law enforcement official.
