Reese Witherspoon has reentered the news lately as it looks like her next film has finally found its director in Bridesmaid’s Paul Feig. The movie is called Wish List and it will star the Academy Award-winning actress as a woman who is faced with the prospects of having all her childhood wishes come true at once. While tainted by an unoriginal idea, the addition of Feig to the crew will undoubtedly go a long way in squelching those fears.
For those not in the know, Feig’s credits include the Kristen Wiig-penned Bridesmaids along with a contingent of well-received small screen comedies ranging from episodes of Arrested Development to The Office. Perhaps he is best known though for creating the short-lived comedy Freaks and Geeks which starred three future movie stars in the form of James Franco, Seth Rogen, and Jason Segel.
Aside from having a proven director, Wish List has a script from Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger. These two co-wrote the Kung Fu Panda movies as well as the Alvin and the Chipmunks sequel efforts. They are also responsible for 2009′s Monsters vs. Aliens which featured Witherspoon’s voice as the lead character, so there is the tie-in that possibly lead to them working on their latest collaboration.
Look for production on Wish List to begin shortly.
