New Line is in negotiations with Seth Gordon (The King of Kong) to direct holiday comedy Four Christmases, starring Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon.
The mini-major’s planning on a December production start for Four Christmases, set up at Spyglass with Gary Barber, Roger Birnbaum and Jonathan Glickman producing. Vaughn and Witherspoon are also producing the pic, in which a couple struggle to visit all four divorced parents on Christmas Day.
Script’s penned by the writing team of Matt Allen and Caleb Wilson. New Line execs are hopeful they can get Four Christmases into theaters during next year’s holiday season.
As promised, Glamour Reese Witherspoon has provided you with high quality scans of Reese’s awesome cover & spread in the August 24th issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine. In the article they state Reese will begin Four Christimases in the Winter, and next year the longly delayed Our Family Trouble (aka Bell Witch). Regular visitors will know that Our Family Trouble has been on and off since late 2005. Four Christmases, in which Reese would co-star alongside Vince Vaugn was just recently annouced in July.
Also an interesting mention in the article, Rendition co-producer Mark Martin says he initially had actress Cate Blanchett in mind for the role of Isabella El-Ibrahim, but Steve Golin, one of the producing partners, says he saw Reese in the role right away. He said “The movie is about somebody you love disapearing, and Reese is such a beloved actress – she’s such a girl-next-door type, only more beautiful – it makes what she goes through more relatable.” Wouldn’t you agree? There was also a new movie still from Rendition in the piece. Happy viewing!
I’ve brought the site’s content up-to-date today. Most notably, I’ve updated Causes & Charities with information on Reese’s role as a Avon Global Ambassador, added some quotes from her new Entertainment Weekly article and included information about Four Christmases on the Rumored Projects section.
Ms. Witherspoon graces the cover of the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, which is the Fall Movie Preview 2007 special. The photoshoot and interview are brand new and Reese looks absolutely gorgeous!

Very small update, but Reese has quieted back down so I thought it was worth mentioning. I made scans from the Glamour which we previously reported about and Angie made a scan from the InStyle UK, both are September issues.

Bad news – Penelope has been delayed again. The film was originally supposed to be released this April, then the studio pushed it back to August 17, which now has been pulled to an unknown release date. No word on when the new release is, but hopefully we’ll hear something soon! I know we’ve been itching to see this film for such a long time already.

One thing Molly R. Stern adores about Reese Witherspoon: “She’s not the neurotic, ‘Oh, I have a broken capillary!’ girl – she’s comfortable with herself and isn’t putting on makeup to look like somebody else,” says the CoverGirl celeb makeup artist. That realness was apparent the night Witherspoon, 31, won her Oscar. “Former winners kept coming up to congratulate her, and she’d get excited like a 13-year-old – she’s not jaded.” Reese, currently starring with Christina Ricci in the dramedy Penelope, bonded with Stern on a shoot 11 years ago. “Someone had zipped a large portion of my hip skin into a pair of leather pants,” says Witherspoon. “I didn’t even know Molly, and she immediately jumped to my rescue, started telling jokes, wiped my tears, rubbed my hands and made me look flawless.” Today they’re full-on friends. “Whenever my kids are sick, Reese is the first person I call, because she’s had hers longer, is a total know-it-all and likes to help people,” says Stern. Another perk: “She gives me lots of shoes; we wear the same size!”
On the same day Reese Witherspoon was announced as the very first Avon Global Ambassador, there was a walk for Breast Cancer at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel and Reese attended having changed into a lovely black dress. We have only located three photos, but never the less she’s beautiful as always. View them here.
I’ve also added another batch of pictures from Reese’s most recent appearance – we now have nearly 200 HQs from the event! View all new additions here. Here’s some really beautiful shots there for your viewing pleasure!
As reported yesterday, the trailer for Rendition was released today and can now be downloaded in high definition over at MovieFone! Be sure to check it out; it looks really, really good and Reese’s scenes are very powerful. I truly can’t wait to see her performance!
