What happened to Reese Witherspoon, anyway? Has she starred in an Adam Sandler comedy I don't know about? After winning an Oscar in 2005 for Walk the Line, Witherspoon has hit a rather rough patch in her career with three underperforming movies, Rendition, Penelope, and Just Like Heaven, in addition to an overperforming piece of excremental garbage, Four Christmases. I thought she was supposed to be the next Julia Roberts, although given Roberts' own recent track record of duds followed by long absences, perhaps she is.

Witherspoon does, however, have a good dozen projects currently in development. The latest is Rule #1, from an original script by Terrel Seltzer. By original script, I mean: It wasn't based on a studio pitch, although the logline sounds like it should've been: It's about a New York woman who befriends a Puerto Rican girl with attention deficit disorder. I don't even know if that's a comedy or a drama -- ADD is neither particularly funny or debilitating. Given Seltzer's track record (One Fine Day, How I Got Into College), I'm actually guessing that it's in the genre of suck.

Witherspoon will produce and star.
