Reese Witherspoon could soon be seen high-kicking her way through an action film.
The Legally Blonde star – who has so far stuck mainly to the romantic comedy and drama genres – is voicing the part of Ginormica, a superhero/monster in new 3D animation Monsters Vs Aliens, and it’s made her think about doing something similar in real-life.
“It might be fun, it actually has gotten me excited. I have never been in an action film before so the last third of this movie is so action-packed, it made me very excited. I think maybe I could do that,” she said.

And the Monsters vs. Aliens European press wagon continues. Today Reese stopped by London for the UK premiere of the movie which was held at the Vue cinema in London’s West End. She dawned a black Prada dress, which accentuated shoulder detail, and a pair of five-inch heels with thick tights to brave the cold. On the blue carpet Reese described her character as a “sweet girl”. “She has to be responsible for herself and save herself and save the world,” she added.

Even Reese Witherspoon finds it difficult to globe-trot at her leisure.
“It’s hard to travel when you have two small children,” she says. But her work as Avon’s global ambassador has taken her around the world in the fight against domestic violence and breast cancer and for emergency-relief fundraising.
A two-day summit on women’s issues brought Witherspoon to the nation’s capital on Tuesday, where she unveiled Avon’s latest fundraising initiative: the empowerment necklace. The small silver chain is an offshoot of last year’s empowerment bracelet, which helped raise $4 million for the Avon Women’s Empowerment Fund.

Monsters vs. Aliens makes it’s way to theatres in a few weeks (March 27th) and there have been several updates including new stills, posters and new trailers and clips. Check out all the clips at ComingSoon.net. There are even a few featurettes floating around, which I’m trying to get to make caps of. Reese is lending her voice to Susan Murphy aka Ginormica in the movie.

Alexander Payne is putting the finishing touches on the social satire Downsizing a script about small people, and has put together a big-name cast.
Paul Giamatti, Sacha Baron Cohen and Reese Witherspoon have all committed to star in the film, which would likely land at Fox Searchlight, where Payne has a first-look deal.
Giamatti, who previously teamed with the director on Sideways, is on board to star as a man low on money who decides he can have a much nicer life if he undergoes a process to shrink himself.
Witherspoon, also a Payne alum, whose career took off after starring in Election, would play a woman Giamatti meets on his journey as a small person. Cohen would play a pint-sized foreigner.
There are no deals in place for the three principals, and no negotiations will take place until Payne finishes his screenplay, which he is penning with Jim Taylor. Jim Burke is producing alongside Payne.
Unlike previous Payne pics, Downsizing would require considerable special effects and could push the budget out of Searchlight’s realm.
Project marks Payne’s first pic since “Sideways,” which was a Searchlight pic.
Rumor is Alexander Payne (director of Election) might be getting into a new film soon and it’s being strongly gossiped that Reese Witherspoon will be one of the stars. The film also may feature, Sacha Baron Cohen, Paul Giamatti and Meryl Streep. It’s all evidently in the preliminary stages but we’ll keep you informed. It could certainly be interesting with that cast/crew behind it!
“Nothing is locked down at this juncture, not even script, certainly not cast,” Wells’ source says. “[Payne is] still working on screenplay, although he’s close.”

Variety reports that Owen Wilson and Paul Rudd are in talks to star opposite Reese Witherspoon in James L. Brooks’ untitled romantic comedy for Columbia Pictures.
Brooks, who is directing and producing, wrote the screenplay, which involves a love triangle. Rudd would play a white-collar executive vying for Witherspoon’s affections, while Wilson would portray a professional baseball pitcher who is also a love interest.
As is customary with Brooks’ projects, logline is being kept vague for the film, which has the working title How Do You Know?
Paula Weinstein “Blood Diamond) and Laurence Mark (Dreamgirls) are also producing.
Studio is eyeing an early summer start date.
Personally, I would love to see Paul and Reese reunite because Overnight Delivery is one of my favorite of Reese’s movies!
Robert Downey Jr and Reese Witherspoon are in talks to star in Warner Bros’ The Days Before and Timur Bekmambetov is in negotiations to direct, according to Production Weekly.
Produced by 300 producer Gianni Nunnari, the sci-fi action spec script was written by Chad St. John (who previously worked on the unproduced script The Further Adventures of Doc Holiday for Bruce Willis). Days Before tells the story of a race of aliens who invade Earth by traveling backwards through time and wiping out humanity, one day at a time, yesterday by yesterday. One man attempts to stay “a yesterday ahead of them”, and every time he must try to convince the world that “the end is coming”, again.
