ZDF Enterprises and Koch Media have landed the rights for the Reese Witherspoon comedy Rule #1 for distribution in Germany and Austria.
Rule #1 was purchased from Foresight Unlimited and distribution throughout theaters is set for next year. The film stars Reese Witherspoon (Legally Blonde, Pleasantville, Walk the Line) as a woman who suffers from an obsessive washing and cleanliness disorder that causes her husband to leave her. She finds new love and learns to cope with her bizarre neuroses in order to start a new life. Courtney Hunt (Frozen River) is the director and screenwriter.
Margrit Stärk, the director of acquisitions for feature films at ZDF Enterprises, said, “ZDF Enterprises and Koch Media have already worked together successfully in the DVD area. As both companies are looking to increase their activities in the cinema sector, the continuation of this seasoned partnership makes sense, particularly with such a highly promising project.”
Stefan Kapelari, the COO of Koch Media, added, “We are extremely pleased to expand our cooperation with ZDF Enterprises with this joint commercialization. Both the genre and excellent cast headed by Reese Witherspoon make Rule #1 a movie with huge commercial potential. Our partnership with ZDF Enterprises enables us to lay the foundation for the successful marketing of this feature film.”
Chris Pine, Reese Witherspoon ‘This Means War’ interview
Reese Witherspoon finds herself torn between two men in Charlie’s Angels director McG’s latest movie This Means War.
Tom Hardy and Chris Pine are the suitors competing for her affections, and to add an extra twist to proceedings they’re both best friends who happen to be highly-trained CIA field agents.
Witherspoon and Pine sat down with Digital Spy to discuss early roles (“She’d seen me in ER,” quips Pine), Hardy’s love for mixed martial arts and weigh in on the age-old Star Trek debate: Captain James T Kirk vs. Captain Jean-Luc Picard.
Pine admitted that his character’s desire to impress Witherspoon’s Lauren spilled over off-screen with Hardy.
“I think guys naturally do that when there’s a beautiful woman around,” he said.
“There’s the inclination to out-charm the other, so Tom threw his best English accent at it and I tried to impress her with my hair.”
Reese Witherspoon is indecisive about her movie roles.
The actress is currently promoting her new movie This Means War alongside Chris Pine and Tom Hardy. She has appeared in a wealth of blockbusters throughout her successful career including Legally Blonde, Walk the Line and Cruel Intentions.
Although Reese has a glittering Hollywood career, the 35-year-old star still struggles when choosing which projects to take on.
“In my life when I am deciding what movies to do I will just wring my hands, just really ruminate about things over and over,” she told UK TV show Daybreak.
“I am not very decisive at all, I can’t commit to a vacation until the very last minute, ‘Should we go there?’ I don’t know…’ I don’t know why.”
Reese discussed what she hopes to do next after promotion for This Means War ends. The blonde star proved her indecisiveness when she revealed that she currently weighing up her options.
“I don’t know…. I am trying to decide between two movies!” she exclaimed.
“What am I going to do next? It comes back round… I don’t know what to do next.”
In an exclusive interview, Reese revealed that Daniel Craig was her favourite James Bond. Ours too. Have you SEEN those blue swimming trunks?!
Reese said: “He’s a good Bond. That’s the rough and tumble kind of Bond,” she said, gazing off into the distance and imagining Daniel Craig.
Reese was joined by her This Means War co-star Chris Pine, and seeing as the film is about two guys fighting over a girl, Yahoo! Movies asked them about their thoughts on whether it’s ever OK to date a friend’s ex.
“I think you’d have to be really into the girl,” Chris said. “You’d have to really think that this was a special thing to fight your friend over.”
Reese agreed. “Isn’t there a code? Bros before h**? Or chicks before d**** is the girls’ version.”
While we have a break in This Means War promotion, and my Reese update roll is continuing, I thought I’d get in another movie screencapture update. So today I have uploaded screencaptures from the How Do You Know DVD extras. There were a few extras on my DVD, although the bloopers were released back during promotion for the film, and I’m fairly certain I’ve seen at least one of the deleted scenes before. Still, I’m very glad they put something on the DVD, it always makes it more fun to receive your copy.
We’ll have super pretty HD caps from the movie itself up over the weekend, time permitting, but for now, enjoy these extras…
In a seven-figure preemptive deal, Sony Pictures is collaborating with Ryan Murphy on One Hit Wonders, a musical comedy pitch that will be written as a star vehicle for Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz, Beyonce and Andy Samberg.
Murphy is attached to direct, and he will write the script with his Glee cohorts Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan. Murphy will produce with Paltrow (who has practically become a Glee cast member) and the latter makes her debut as a producer on this film. Murphy hopes to direct it after he completes The Normal Heart.
Paltrow, Witherspoon and Diaz will play three singers who each scored a top hit song in the 1990s before watching their careers go down the drain. They decide to form a super group. Samberg and his Lonely Island cohorts will be involved in generating music for the film, I’m told. The project came out of a dinner Murphy had at the Soho House with Paltrow, Diaz and Witherspoon. They wanted to do something fun together and kicked around ideas until they settled on One Hit Wonders. Murphy, who made Eat Pray Love with Sony Pictures chief Amy Pascal, took the pitch to her. Pascal bought it 10 minutes in. They are working the deals right now. Murphy previously made a big deal with Sony for a follow-up picture he’ll direct with Julia Roberts starring. Sony’s Elizabeth Cantillon and Hannah Minghella will steer the project.
UPDATE: Beyonce’s camp says that she isn’t attached to One Hit Wonders, so perhaps this was a bit of over-exuberance on the part of the filmmakers. Still a crazy good cast if you ask me.
I’ve updated the This Means War Promotion section on our sidebar, to include links to all the recent photos, as well as a list of the upcoming appearances Reese will be making (yes, still!) to promote the movie worldwide. Unless I heard wrong, I think Reese said in her recent iVillage live chat that she would be going to Brazil, Mexico City and Germany in March to promote the movie before it’s release in each of those countries.
So we have lots of new photos to look forward to still!
The film fans amongst us will know that today is Oscar day, and while our Reese is not involved in this years ceremony (she might attend, I don’t know – I’ll keep you posted), I thought it would be fun to do something here to mark the big movie event. So I racked my brains for an Oscar special with a difference, and came up with a big Election update! Many people think that Reese was overlooked for an Oscar nomination for her performance as Tracy Flick in this movie, but not only that, it’s director, the great Alexander Payne, is nominated at this years ceremony for Best Director for The Descendants.
Reese says she has remained friends with Alexander Payne over the years, and even mentioned in her recent live iVillage chat that they had talked about working together again. Just last week she presented him with the Filmmaker Of The Year Award at the ACE Eddie Awards. Of their movie together, Reese thinks that it has a “wonderful sense of honesty and reality” and says it’s director has a “unique voice”. She recalls her casting in the movie, saying “We had this weird meeting, then suddenly, the next week he offered me the role. He’d only seen `Man in the Moon’ and he was sure I could do it! I didn’t want to call him and say, `That was nine years ago, things have changed a little.’ But it worked out.” To this day Alexander says he still receives compliments on Reese’s performance in the movie, and has said of his Election star “She’s going to be interesting for a long time”.
Tracy: “Dear Lord Jesus, I do not often speak with you and ask for things, but now, I really must insist that you help me win the election tomorrow because I deserve it and Paul Metzler doesn’t, as you well know. I realize that it was your divine hand that disqualified Tammy Metzler and now I’m asking that you go that one last mile and make sure to put me in office where I belong so that I may carry out your will on earth as it is in heaven. Amen.”
We’re sure Reese is rooting for him at tonight’s event, and he certainly deserves to be recognised for his funny, moving and relatable movie The Descendants. As well as that movie, Reese has also recently revealed that she loved The Artist and Beginners.
TRIVIA:Did you know? Director Alexander Payne wanted to associate Tracy Flick with straight lines, and Mr McAllister with circles. He admitted that he didn’t think he did that very well throughout the film.
I’ve updated the Gallery with lots of Election-related photos, including stills, posters, a promotional shoot and pictures from the premiere. Check out our still-a-work-in-progress filmography page for the movie to read some interesting trivia about the movie. And scroll further down this post for videos from a few interviews Reese gave for the movie plus a couple of trailers.
Enjoy all these Election updates! And as always, don’t be shy – if you have something to say/if you want to share your thoughts on this movie etc. then leave us a comment!
Reese has taken the This Means War promotion to South Korea, and yesterday attended a press conference and premiere with director McG. in Seoul. Reese looked luminous in a pink and black Michael Kors dress at the press conference, and was her usual animated self when talking to the press. She then posed on the red carpet and signed for fans at the premiere, wearing a Giambattista Valli dress with Neil Lane jewllery and Jimmy Choo heels. She looks fabulous at both events, don’t you think?
Check out the first HQ photos in our Gallery, and check back tomorrow for more pics, as well as any articles/interviews/tidbits and videos there may be….
