Reese to play tennis pro

Jan. 29, 2002by: Mike Sampson

Reese Witherspoon will receive her biggest payday yet ($8 million big ones) to star and produce in an untitled drama about a women's tennis star.  The film will follow Reese's character, a former pro washed up at 24 and reduced to teaching lessons to kids at a local club.  When she's asked to mentor a rising athlete, who has beauty but lacks intensity (*cough*annakournikova*cough*), the two become an unlikely pair as Witherspoon's character coaches her to a championship (and of course we can't forget how she learns something about herself in the process).  This project is currently battling with another of Witherspoon's pet projects, THE FLYING SMITHS over which will film first.  Both are out to directors and whichever attracts talent first will be the first to go.  Reese is also currently deciding whether she wants to reprise her role, for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe, in LEGALLY BLONDE 2.
