Reese Witherspoon is set to star in a film on the life story of singer Peggy Lee. The project is based on a Nora Ephron screenplay. It finally has a director after being shelved due to Ephron's death in 2012.
Far From Heaven director Todd Haynes will shoot the film, while Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Doug Wright has revised the screenplay, which Ephron had started prior to her death.
Of course Witherspoon will play the singer. RW won an Oscar for her work as June Carter Cash, also a singer, in Walk the Line, soooooo…. She could repeat at the Academy Awards podium. Maybe? Perhaps?
Will you see this film once it's in multiplexes?
