Reese Witherspoon’s Home Again tipped for September release
Reese Witherspoon’s romantic comedy ‘Home Again’ will drop in five months’ time.
The upcoming drama, which sees the 41-year-old actress portray one of the main characters alongside Michael Sheen, has finally been given the release date of September 8 by Open Road Films, according to Deadline.com
The blonde beauty plays a recently-separated mother-of-two whose new life in Los Angeles is shaken when she takes in three young guys (played by Pico Alexander, Nat Wolff, and Jon Rudnitsky) and they become part of her unconventional family.
The light-hearted flick was written and directed by Hallie Meyers-Shyer - the daughter of Nancy Meyers - while Black Bicycle Entertainment’s Erika Olde will produce.
Rose Byrne was initially in the frame to play the female protagonist, but then Hallie, with Nancy’s help, secured Reese and announced the line up earlier this year.
Reese is busy with a number of projects both in front and behind the camera.
She recently wrapped up voicing a character for musical comedy ‘Sing’ - which came out in January - and has also been working on HBO mini-series ‘Big Little Lies’.
The Hollywood star has also been working as a producer on ‘Barbie and Ruth’ which is about the life of Ruth Handler, the creator of Barbie.
Reese’s production company, Pacific Standard picked up the movie rights to Robin Gerber’s book ‘Barbie and Ruth’, which documents Handler’s rise to success with the iconic blonde doll and the movie is due out in 2018.
Ruth was inspired to create Barbie after watching her daughter Barbara playing with paper dolls as if they were adults.
She also noticed Barbara couldn’t properly dress her dolls in the clothes she had made them.
Ruth along with the help of her husband Elliot - who worked for toy manufacturers Mattel - developed and launched Barbie in 1959, and instantly had a hit on their hands which has lasted to this day.
As well as inventing Barbie, later in her life Ruth co-founded a company that manufactured an ultra-realistic replica of a women’s breast after she herself developed breast cancer.
