44-year-old ”Wild’ actress Reese Witherspoon will be producing and directing two romantic-comedy adaptations for Netflix.
Reese’s production company Hello Sunshine will be behind production and they’ll also star Reese, of course. The movies are ‘Your Place or Mine’ and ‘THE CACTUS.’ ‘Your Place or Mine’ focuses on two long-distance best friends who change each other’s lives when she decides to pursue a lifelong dream and he volunteers to keep an eye on her teenage son. In ‘The Cactus,’ an unexpected pregnancy at 45 causes a reserved woman to rethink the structured life she has created for herself and leads her on an unconventional journey toward love, family and learning to embrace the unexpected.
Reese says of the movies in a statement: “We have been looking for the right feature opportunities to collaborate with Ted Sarandos, Scott Stuber and the entire team at Netflix for a while and we couldn’t be more excited to be working with them on these two romantic comedies. Both Sarah Haywood’s and Aline Brosh McKenna’s stories blend everything we love about traditional RomComs with strong, smart and determined female leads.” Let us know: DO YOU HAVE NETFLIX?
