Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara's Buddy Comedy Starts Production

05.12.2014by:

Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara's untitled comedy (formerly titled DON’T MESS WITH TEXAS) is starting production this week in New Orleans. The female-driven comedy has been on the table for over a year so I suspect they have found time in the actress’s busy schedules to finally get it going. Anne Fletcher (THE PROPOSAL, THE GUILT TRIP) is directing the movie that pairs an uptight police officer played by Witherspoon trying to protect Vergara’s character, a “sexy and outgoing” widow of a drug lord, from corrupt cops and other armed men intent on killing her.

I’ll start the dialogue here by saying that a buddy action comedy with these two fine actresses would be something I’d like to see. The sub-genre has almost always been exclusive to males, but with massive hits like THE HEAT (and its inevitable sequel), it’s no wonder that studios are looking to pair up more women. The premise is similar to THE HEAT in that is stars two mismatch characters, but that’s how these buddy flicks usually work. Yet, I can still see the Oscar winner Witherspoon and the TV star Vergara bringing their own style and chemistry to the movie making something more original than some might think.

The projected release date is May 8, 2015, just in time for Mother’s Day!

What do you think of this Reese Witherspoon/Sofia Vergara film?

I am not against this movie, but does anybody else think it would have been far more interesting with the roles reversed? We already know the comedic stylings of the leads, and just based on the description of their characters, how they'll play them (roughly) is an easy thing to figure out. Switch it around and you've got something more challenging and interesting.

say what you, she is far more pretty than anything you can score, toss in a level of success you or your "mate" will never see and I can see why you are so bitter
