Mini-mogul Reese Witherspoon has signed on to produce and star in Rule #1, a new film from the writer of** One Fine Day**. She of the pointy chin and perky everything has added this tale of a New York woman who befriends a Puerto Rican girl with attention defecit disorder to her very, very long To Do list.
In this case, we don't know if writer Terrel Seltzer's script is a comedy, drama, science-fiction action movie or something in between, just that it's about a woman and a girl with ADD. Given Witherspoon's background, comedy's possible, but it seems more likely on the bare bones description that it's a drama more in line with her Just Like Heaven moments than her **Legally Blonde **ones.
There's no word yet on where this will fit in on the Witherspoon To Do list: she's also got an untitled James L. Brooks film out next December, Around The World in 80 Dates, a Cameron Crowe film, Bell Witch, a voice role in Pixar's The Bear and the Bow, a possible turn in the much delayed **Used Guys **and about six other projects. Rumours that she's also planning to clean out the Augean Stables, slay the Nemean Lion and steal the apples of the Hesperides are probably unfounded, but we're not dismissing them altogether.
