Reese Witherspoon IS Peggy Lee
Witherspoon will star as the singer-songwriter, while Nora Ephron (Julie & Julia) will write and direct, while some of the money men behind Reese's breakout Legally Blonde pictures will produce. And beyond that, I'm not sure what else to say. It sounds like total Oscar bait, and I won't pretend to be overly familiar with Lee's career or personal life beyond a few of her tunes, but I hope it turns out well because I'm probably going to end up sitting through it regardless.
Let's face facts, though -- it's not gonna be half as good as Just Like Heaven.
