The romantic comedy is being penned by “Grey’s Anatomy” scribe Krista Vernoff.
The busiest man in Hollywood just got a little busier.
Ryan Seacrest is producing his first film, a romantic comedy with co-producer Reese Witherspoon. The still untitled project, which will be produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions and Witherspoon’s Type A Films in association with Universal, will be written by Grey’s Anatomy scribe Krista Vernoff.
Seacrest is already a major producer for Universal parent’s television division, for which he produces E!’s Kardashian franchise and serves as host and managing editor of E! News.
The American Idol host and radio star noted his desire to venture into the film world as well as the scripted TV world when profiled by The Hollywood Reporter in April. The latter became a reality when he sold a small-screen adaptation of The Nanny Diaries with Harvey Weinstein into development at ABC in August.
For her part, Witherspoon is garnering buzz for her upcoming role in 20th Century Fox’s This Means War, where she juggles relationships with two CIA agents – played by Chris Pine and Tom Hardy – who pull out all the stops to battle for her affection. The movie is scheduled to hit theaters on Feb. 17.
News of their romantic comedy project comes mere days after Vernoff had sold a legal drama with a supernatural twist to CBS. The project pairs Vernoff, whose other small screen credits include Charmed and Private Practice, with producers Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly.
Seacrest, Witherspoon and Vernoff are all repped by CAA.
“Look at you. You have a baby … in a bar!” That line, from Reese Witherspoon’s 2002 comedy Sweet Home Alabama, still make me laugh. And now the Oscar winner might have to pretend to be kind to another baby for the benefit of a big-screen comedy.
According to a release, Witherspoon is coming aboard the feature Rule #1 with the intention of shaping it into a starring vehicle. Even better, she has signed Oscar-nominated director Courtney Hunt (Frozen River) to helm the comedy. Witherspoon has said she’ll produce Rule #1 through her Type A banner, collaborating with Brad Epstein of Panther Films and the business venture of Emmett/Furla Films.
If Witherspoon headlines the pic, she’ll 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.

Arkansas is getting some star power as Mud begins filming in the state this week.
Mathew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Tye Sheridan, Sam Shepard, Michael Shannon and Sarah Paulson have all signed on to star in the movie, which is being directed by Jeff Nichols.
The coming-of-age story follows a charismatic fugitive and his friendship with a 14-year old boy who helps him escape from the law in order to reunite with his soul mate.
Locals are already buzzing about the production as the movie’s offices have been set up in Stuttgart, at the former Clary Elementary building, located at 107 E. Superior St, and today, Highway 65 in Dumas was closed for filming.
“Everyone’s really excited about it, it’s been really great for the town,” said Stephen Bell, director of the Stuttgart Chamber of Commerce.
Witherspoon was even spotted shopping at the Dollar General in Dumas this week!
The movie is expected to continue filming in Arkansas through next month. If you are interested in being an extra in the film, you can apply here. If you spot Mud filming in Arkansas, let us know about it at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Stage and screen actors Michael Shannon, Sam Shepard, Sarah Paulson and Paul Sparks have been cast in Jeff Nichols’ upcoming film, “Mud,” according to Deadline.com.
The drama, written and directed by Nichols, will star Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon and Tye Sheridan. Also in the cast are Ray McKinnon and Joe Don Baker.
“Mud,” which recently began production in Arkansas, centers on two 14-year-old boys who encounter a mysterious fugitive in hiding, Mud. The boys are determined to help him escape from the law and reunite with the love of his life, played by Witherspoon.
The film is produced by Sarah Green, Lisa Maria Falcone and Aaron Ryder. Glen Basner is executive producer.
Shannon has been seen on Broadway in Ambassador and Butterflies Are Free. Paulson has been seen in Collected Stories and The Glass Menagerie, and Sparks’ Broadway credits include Hedda Gabler and Take Me Out.

Starring Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon, escape to a world of forbidden love, danger and intrigue for a great night in this autumn with Water for Elephants (2011) released on Blu-ray Triple Play on 5th September from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
Water for Elephants tells the powerful and emotional story of two people who fall in love against all odds, set in the alluring and enigmatic world of a travelling circus.
Heartthrob Pattinson (Twilight) stars as Jacob, a penniless and recently-orphaned veterinary school student, who parlays his expertise with animals into a job with a second-rate travelling circus. Jacob falls in love with the star performer and Circus owner’s wife Marlena, played by Academy Award winner Witherspoon (Walk The Line). Against all odds – including the wrath of Marlena’s husband August, the charismatic but unbalanced circus ringmaster portrayed by Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds) – Jacob saves Marlena from an unhappy life and they find lifelong love, amidst the world of the Big Top.
Based on the international best-selling novel by Sara Gruen (#1New York Times) and directed by Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend), the Blu-ray Triple Play is packed with special features including deleted scenes, featurettes and a Robert Pattinson Spotlight.

Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon are in discussions to star in “Mud,” Everest Entertainment announced Friday.
Everest is financing the movie, which also stars “One Tree Hill” and “The Tree of Life’s” Tye Sheridan.
“Mud” “is the powerful, redemptive tale of a charismatic fugitive named Mud and his unlikely friendship with 14-year-old Ellis. Ellis is determined to help his new friend escape from both the law and some very serious bounty hunters in order to reunite Mud with his soul mate, Juniper.”
McConaughey would play Mud, Sheridan would play Elllis and Witherspoon would play Juniper.
Jeff Nichols (“Take Shelter”) wrote the movie and will direct.
Everest is fully financing. The company’s Lisa Marie Falcone is producing with Sarah Green — who also produced “The Tree of Life.” FilmNation Entertainment’s Aaron Ryder also is producing.
“Jeff Nichols has written a beautiful story with rich characters learning valuable lessons through life-changing circumstances,” Falcone said in a statement.
Reese Witherspoon has attached herself to star in Wish List, a Disney comedy about an overly imaginative little girl who makes ten wishes at a wishing well. They don’t come true because her coin never reached the bottom and eventually she loses her inner child and becomes a full grown and ambitious career woman. Some 25 years later, the coin is dislodged, falls to the bottom and she has to deal with the ramifications of 10 kid wishes coming true all at once. The script’s being written by Randi Mayem Singer. Wish List is being produced by Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray, who most recently produced Secretariat for the studio. The comedy was initially developed as a vehicle for a male star, but now it’s being retooled for Witherspoon, who was last seen in Water for Elephants. She next stars in the McG-directed This Means War opposite Chris Pine and Tom Hardy for Fox. Witherspoon’s repped by CAA and Management 360, Singer by ICM.
“And last week I saw Cameron Diaz at Fred Segal, and I talked her out of buying this truly heinous angora sweater. Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed.”
Elle Woods is right, there’s no beating pink, and so we are celebrating her with her favourite colour in our new layout here at Glamour Reese Witherspoon! It’s been 10 years (can you believe it!!?) since our favourite blonde lawyer lit up our screens in Legally Blonde, released exactly 10 years ago this past Friday. The character has become somewhat iconic in modern cinema, and the film catapulted Miss Witherspoon right onto Hollywood’s A-List, and she’s been at the top of that list ever since. It also gained her a legion of new fans, including many of you reading this, I expect. It seemed fitting to celebrate the anniversary of the film with a super-fun themed layout here, and I think Mycah did Elle justice. Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of the page for more Elle!
Not only does Legally Blonde celebrate 10 years this year, but so does this very site you are looking at. Yep, Glamour Reese Witherspoon was created by our lovely friend April all the way back in 2001. I think it goes without saying what an incredible job she did building this site up and creating an online haven for Reese fans to enjoy, and I know it inspired me to start my own fansites. GRW has always heightened my love for Reese, so I wanted to mark that, too, with this special layout. But more on the site’s anniversary later in the year (I think it started in November, to be exact).
Enjoy the new layout – comment on it if you wish! – and check back throughout the coming week for as many updates as I can fit in, including content, photos and scans.
Elle: Here it is!
Professor Callahan: It’s pink…
Elle: Oh! And it’s scented! I think it gives it a little something extra, don’t you think? Ok, well, see you next class!
Continuing our massive Water For Elephants promotion catch-up (make sure you don’t miss our first huge update below!), I’ve now started to work on the remaining public appearance photos.
I’ve added another 50+ gorgeous HQs from the Water For Elephants press conference – these are a real treat! Over to Paris, and we have 20+ additional HQs from the premiere held there. From the Spanish events, we have 40-odd more HQs from the Barcelona premiere, plus I’ve finally added photos from the press conference held in that city the day after the premiere. I’ve also added photos from the two events held in Sydney – a fun-looking photocall with Tai the elephant, and a red carpet premiere. Reese looked casually cute at the Sydney photocall, but she really turned on the glitz for the premiere, looking stunning in a little blue dress and gorgeous curly hair – I love this look on her! It’s probably my favourite of the Water For Elephants promotion, alongside the New York premiere.
Speaking of the New York premiere, I’m still sorting through photos from that and the London premiere, as there are more photos from them both than you would believe! I’m hoping to get them added slowly over the next week, so keep an eye on the Gallery for them.
Photos from the most recent events Reese has attended are coming tomorrow/Monday…

Finally, an update, I hear you say! To try to stop being the world’s worst webmaster, I have some massive updates for you featuring all the remaining photos from the Water For Elephants promotion a couple of months ago.
Part 1 of the massive update is full of photoshoots, magazine scans, and tv appearance screencaptures. First up we have additional photos from the shoot Reese did for the LA Times earlier this year. We have over 100 new magazine scans/clippings for you to browse through, most of which are thanks to Mirik. Big thanks goes to our friend Mia for gorgeous scans from a recent issue of Madame Figaro which featured a new photoshoot image of Miss Reese. I’ve also added images from Reese’s Vogue cover spread.
In the TV Appearances section we now have screencaps from all of Reese’s Water For Elephants tv interviews – the new additions are from Conan, Ellen, Le Grand Journal and The Graham Norton Show. Reese looked so beautiful on each show (particularly Conan, I think!) and was her usual funny and animated self, so there are lots of super-fun expressions in there. I’ve also added HQ stills from the Ellen and Graham Norton appearances.
This makes close to 2,000 new photos, so you have a lot of beautiful Reese to browse!! Catch-up appearance photos are on the way … Oh, and maybe something else a little bit special
