It seems Reese Witherspoon has lined another movie up, as while she’s only down to produce at the moment, the idea is they’ll shape Rule #1 into a movie for her to start in. Cinema Blend has the news and says they’ve already found a director for the movie, with Courtney Hunt (Frozen River) down to helm.
The film will see Witherspoon ‘play 34-year-old Diana McBride, a woman coping with her OCD who agrees to take in an unpredictable young stranger – who happens to have a newborn baby – in an effort to face her anxieties. Ultimately, McBride’s plan is to win back her estranged husband by convincing him she can handle her chaotic existence.’
Sounds a bit like she’s angling for another Oscar, which might not be a bad plan, as she hasn’t exactly had a huge amount of luck since Walk The Line. There’s no news on when the film might shoot.
