I’ve just added in our gallery, three promotional stills and a behind the scenes picture from The Good Lie. Make sure to check out!
It is a film with a very serious message about the refugees of the Sudanese Civil War and a select few that won a lottery bringing them to America. But it seems Reese Witherspoon and her co-stars of refugee drama The Good Lie managed to have a laugh off-set.
Appearing on The Queen Latifah Show on Monday, Reese laughed as she revealed her nickname on set and in the movie, was ‘great white cow’. Watch the video below:
The project, based on a Nora Ephron screenplay, had been put on hold after Ephron died in 2012. The untitled Peggy Lee film starring Reese Witherspoon is back on, with Far From Heaven helmer Todd Haynes directing.
The project, based on a Nora Ephron screenplay, had been put on hold after Ephron died in 2012. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Doug Wright (I Am My Own Wife) picked up the reins and did a rewrite of the screenplay. His credits include both the stage and film versions of Quills.
Witherspoon, who was at the Toronto Film Festival promoting Wild and The Big Lie, has long eyed the story of the Fever singer whose career in music spanned six decades. Lee died in 2002.
The project is set up at Fox 2000, which made Walk the Line, for which Witherspoon won a best actress Oscar. Marc Platt, who produced Witherspoon’s two Legally Blonde films, is producing. Haynes, who is known for directing strong female performances like Julianne Moore’s Oscar-nominated turn in Far From Heaven, most recently directed the Bob Dylan pic I’m Not There. He is in post-production on the Rooney Mara-Cate Blanchett starrer Carol.
Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Lopez are set to be honored for their philanthropic efforts at the upcoming Variety Power of Women event. The sixth annual event will be held in Los Angeles on 10 October.
The trade magazine’s annual luncheon pays tribute to some of Hollywood’s most notable and charitable stars, and this year (14), Witherspoon and Lopez, along with Jane Fonda and Viola Davis, will be named Lifetime Impact Honorees for their humanitarian efforts.
The Walk the Line star will be recognized for her participation in the Malala Fund, an organization which promotes education for young girls, and Lopez for her Lopez Family Foundation that works on access to medical care for women and children.
Fonda will be honored for her teen pregnancy prevention charity, Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power and Potential, and Davis will get praise for her support towards childhood hunger organization Hunger Is.
