"Don’t Mess With Texas" Reese Witherspoon comedy finds helmer

PanARMENIAN.Net - Anne Fletcher is in talks to direct Don’t Mess With Texas, a buddy action-comedy that will star Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara, The Hollywood Reporter said.

The project is set up at MGM, which recently picked it after it was put into turnaround by Universal. (Universal had picked it up as a spec package in June.)

The script, by David Feeney and John Quaintance, follows a police officer and a prisoner who are on the run.

Dana Fox will produce the film along with Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea for their Pacific Standard production company.

Fletcher is a choreographer turned director whose credits include the hit romantic comedy The Proposal, which starred Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds, as well as 27 Dresses and The Guilt Trip.
