At this point, we're starting to understand that all one needs to do to sell a pilot these days is to pick any work of classic literature, chop words off the title, and set it in the modern day. 'Alice in Wonderland' becomes 'Wunderland,' even Green Arrow comics become 'Arrow,' so what's the latest hack n' slash adaptation coming to The CW? Why, an adaptation of Charles Dickens' 'Great Expectations' of course, courtesy of Reese Witherspoon! Guess which word they chop off!
If you're thinking Reese Witherspoon is going to become a bearded lady based on that headline, we regret to inform you that isn't the case. The actress will star in and produce 'The Beard,' which refers to that other kind of beard.
Though 'This Means Wars' might have tanked, it hasn't kept Reese Witherspoon from keeping busy, as she's lined up a number of high profile projects. Her latest get is ‘Pennyroyal’s Boot Camp,’ which she plans to not only co-star in but also produce.
As if we needed another self-help book adaptation after 'What to Expect When You're Expecting.' But this one somehow already sounds worse -- the best-selling book 'Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus' by John Gray is getting its own film, starring Reese Witherspoon, and it just picked up a director... which means it's really happening.
When you deliver an unexpected smash hit comedy like 'Bridesmaids,' you're going to be hot, so it will be interesting to see what Paul Feig does next. It looks like he's got his eyes on 'Wish List,' a Disney film that currently has Reese Witherspoon attached to star.
Reese Witherspoon turns 36 today, but it seems her own birthday isn't what's foremost on her mind right now. Friends (or should we say, "tattletales") have been blabbing all over the place that the actress, who married Hollywood agent Jim Toth last spring, is pregnant with her third child.
