Robert De Niro Reese Witherspoon
When one door closes, another opens so the saying goes, particularly if you're famed writer/director Nancy Meyers. While a brewing project written by "The Spectacular Now" writers Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber will no longer have her services, a previous project she was brewing at Paramount before they stuck it in turnaround is now revived.

To say "Passengers" has been in the works for years is no exaggeration. Since at least 2010 it has been brewing, with Keanu Reeves — who first commissioned the script from Jon Spaihts after reading his 2007 Black List entry "Shadow 19" — attached, going through a couple iterations, without much success. But steam seems to be building now. Earlier this year, "Game Of Thrones" and "Boardwalk Empire" helmer Brian Kirk signed on to direct, with Reese Witherspoon joining not longer after. But now there's a casting switcheroo, but nothing that should hold things up.

Reese Witherspoon
After a stint working on indie movies with Jeff Nichols' "Mud" opening earlier this year, Atom Egoyan's "The Devil's Knot" hitting the festival circuit, and Paul Thomas Anderson's "Inherent Vice" probably landing sometime next year, the actress is going back to making movies that will pay the bills. She's headed to Disney to make the fairy tale comedy, "Happily Ever After."

Devil's Knot
It has been twenty years since the horrifically mutilated, murdered bodies of children Steve Branch, Michael Moore, and Christopher Byers were found in a creek in the middle of Robin Hood Hills in Arkansas. And thus started a saga that spanned nearly two decades, with the trials of the accused Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley Jr. and Jason Baldwin gaining national attention, which eventually turned to outrage. Chronicled in great detail via the 'Paradise Lost' trilogy of documentaries as well as Amy Berg's "West Of Memphis," the case of the West Memphis Three soon became one of justice denied, not only to the three young men, but also the victims whose real killer or killers is still unidentified.

“Wild” has been seemingly on the cusp of being made for quite some time. The true story of a woman undertaking a 1,100 mile journey after suffering a personal tragedy has gone on its own little journey to reach the big screen, but now it's drawing close to an end.

Even though her political career isn't over yet, with a 2016 Presidential race still a distinct possibility, it looks like the life of Hillary Rodham Clinton is being prepared for some cinematic reflections. Last month, "Smashed" and "The Spectacular Now" director James Ponsoldt signed to direct the Black List approved "Rodham," a biopic focusing on Hillary's student days and her rise into the world of politics. It's some strong material and a good story, and naturally, some big name actresses are already being bandied about to take the lead role.

Reese Witherspoon
It's lost to the mists of time now, but when the project first emerged, there was talk that Reese Witherspoon was going to appear in Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master," as Peggy, the manipulative wife of Lancaster Dodd. For whatever reason (let's hope it wasn't a scheduling conflict with "This Means War"), it didn't come to pass, but it seems like Witherspoon and PTA are still mutual admirers, as Deadline bring news that the actress has just signed on to the director's new project, "Inherent Vice."

WHAT ARREST? Is the phrase Reese Witherspoon is likely hoping people will soon be saying as America's (former?) sweetheart bounces back from her embarrassing arrest (she's human, who knew?) by lining up project after project. Last week she booked both the sci-fi "Passengers" and the comedy thing "Depth Of Field," and now she's adding some prestige sauce on top of her mix of never-ending, developing projects.

The past few weeks have undoubtedly been a bit difficult for Reese Witherspoon. She’s never been known to get in any legal troubles, but she most recently had to appear in court after getting arrested for disorderly conduct while her husband was pulled over for a DUI. An embarrassing situation for anyone, even worse when there’s video of the entire situation (see below). So what does one do to get past a situation like that? You get back to work. And that’s exactly what Witherspoon plans on doing.
