'Hot Pursuit' Trailer: Reese Witherspoon And Sofia Vergara Are On The Run

13 February 2015 6:17 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

This summer, Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara will star in a buddy cop comedy called Hot Pursuit. Reese Witherspoon plays the goody-goody cop and Sofia Vergara is the sexy widow of a drug lord. Check out the first trailer below.

Directed by Anne Fletcher (The Proposal, The Guilt Trip), Hot Pursuit, follows an uptight cop tries to protect a sexy and outgoing widow of a drug boss as they race through Texas, pursued by crooked cops and murderous gunmen.

The comedy also stars John Carroll Lynch (“American Horror Story,” Shutter Island), Rob Kazinsky (“True Blood,” Pacific Rim) and Richard T. Jones (“Hawaii Five-o,” “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”).

Hot Pursuit feels like a knock-off of some comedy starring Melissa McCarthy. However, it is interesting to see this duo in a comedy that you would normally see someone like McCarthy, Sandra Bullock and/or Jennifer Aniston. Also, it's nice to see »

Reese Witherspoon And Sofia Vergara Are On The Run In Trailer For Hot Pursuit

13 February 2015 11:59 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros. has unleashed the first trailer for female buddy movie, Hot Pursuit, starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara. In the pic, the pair appear as an unlikely duo who team up to escape a motley crew of cops and mobsters. Maintaining the comedic tradition of opposites attract, Witherspoon plays a rigid cop who sticks to the rules with Vergara alongside her as a vivacious gangster’s widow.

The pair become attached at the hip when big-time drug boss Cortez is killed and Vergara’s widow is ordered to appear at his murder trial. Enter her protective law enforcer – tasked with escorting her cross-country – and they are soon on the run from a myriad of assorted baddies out to prevent them reaching their destination.

Storywise, it’s a by-the-numbers set up that’s aided in this trailer by its leading ladies who are at the top of their game. A »

Here’s the Trailer for the Reese Witherspoon-Sofia Vergara Action-Comedy You Didn’t Know You Needed in Your Life

13 February 2015 11:50 AM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

After a few years of misses, Reese Witherspoon is officially back. Now that she’s built back her cred with her Oscar-nominated film Wild, she’s reminding us of her comedic chops that made Tracy Flick and Elle Woods so memorable with her latest film, Hot Pursuit.

In the Anne Fletcher-directed film, she stars as a tiny police officer (a point hilariously hammered home throughout the trailer) tasked to protect a drug widow’s boss (Sofia Vergara). The unlikely — seriously, who is the casting genius that thought these two could work together? — duo dodge bullets, gunmen, and all kinds of danger as they blaze through Texas.

The film hits theaters on May 8 just in time for Mother’s Day. So, for now, feel free to watch this surprisingly entertaining teaser over and over again. We sure are. »

Watch: Its Bigger (And Smaller) In Texan ‘Hot Pursuit’ Trailer

13 February 2015 11:12 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It’s nice to see Reece Witherspoon return to her comedic roots after a run of more serious, dramatic features. Hell I would too if I had just walked the Pacific Coast Trail, found jobs and a lost sister for three Lost Boys, and endured the murder of a son.

Witherspoon plays uptight police officer Cooper who is assigned to escort the sultry wife of a drug lieutenant, Mrs Riva (Sophia Vergara), to Dallas so that she can testify against the cartel’s drug lord Vicente Cortez. Cooper’s by-the-book disposition is blown away in a cocaine cloud when they become the target of crooked cops and murderous gunmen sent to kill them.

Directed by The Proposal’s Anne Fletcher, Hot Pursuit also stars John Carroll Lynch (American Horror Story), Rob Kazinsky (True Blood), and Godzilla’s Richard T. Jones.

Reese Witherspoon & Sofia Vergara Buddy Up in 'Hot Pursuit' (Video)

13 February 2015 7:20 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Oscar nominee Reese Witherspoon hasn't lost her comedy chops. The trailer for her upcoming action/comedy movie with Sofia Vergara, "Hot Pursuit," is promisingly funny! Witherspoon plays Officer Cooper, a tiny Texan police officer whose latest assignment is to drive a drug dealer's widow to Dallas to testify against the men who killed her husband. As Daniella Riva, Sofia Vergara seems to be well-matched with Witherspoon in terms of comic timing and physical humor.

Previously known as "Don't Mess With Texas," "Hot Pursuit" is being described as "The Heat" meets "Midnight Run." Director Anne Fletcher is known for her work on "The Guilt Trip," "The Proposal," "27 Dresses," and the original "Step Up." That's right, the one with Channing Tatum and his now-wife Jenna Dewan Tatum. Vergara and Witherspoon are also producers.

First Trailer For Hot Pursuit

13 February 2015 3:54 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Fresh from getting all serious and awardsy with Wild, Reese Witherspoon is back doing comedy, showing off her range and poking fun at herself all at once in this first trailer for crime caper Hot Pursuit. Click below for a closer look.Hot Pursuit sees Witherspoon playing an uptight cop who’d rather chew her own badge than break from the regulations. At least, until she finds herself escorting gangster moll Sofia Vergara in a high-speed chase across the bluegrassier parts of Texas. They’re the chasees – Thelma And Louise/Midnight Run-style – while chasing them is an array of drug henchmen and gunmen. We’re guessing on this evidence, and from the film’s original title, 'Don’t Mess With Texas', that they get a lot more than they bargained for from the strangely formidable duo. Hot Pursuit is directed by The Proposal’s Anne Fletcher who’ll be »

Reese Witherspoon & Sofia Vergara in First Trailer for 'Hot Pursuit'

12 February 2015 5:14 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"We have been set up, shot at and hunted down." If you watched The Heat and thought to yourself, "Hey, I wish this was more like Midnight Run," then we have some good news for you. Hot Pursuit stars Reese Witherspoon as a feisty, uptight police officer tasked with escorting the widow/potential witness (Sofia Vergara) in an important investigation of a drug lord. But of course, shit goes down, and the two are forced to go on the run. Witherspoon and Vergara seem like a fun enough mismatched pair, but the comedy is a little broad, though I do like the bit about the news messing up their height and age respectively. Watch! Here's the first trailer for Anne Fletcher's Hot Pursuit from YouTube: Hot Pursuit is directed by Anne Fletcher (The Proposal, 27 Dresses) and written by David Feeney ("New Girl") and John Quaintance ("Whitney").

12 February 2015 4:40 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A police officer and a prisoner on the run in Texas: there's your the premise for Warner Bros. comedy “Hot Pursuit.”  Directed by Anne Fletcher ("The Proposal," "27 Dresses"), “Hot Pursuit” pairs Reese Witherspoon with Sofia Vergara. While Witherspoon has revitalized her career with the Academy Award-nominated for “Wild,” she’s obviously not afraid to be in a big studio comedy. The official log-line doesn’t provide many deeper details, but here they are: An uptight, by-the-book cop (Witherspoon, whose production company is named Type A) tries to protect the sexy and outgoing widow (Vergara) of a drug boss as they race through Texas pursued by crooked cops and murderous gunmen. Co-starring John Carroll Lynch, Rob Kazinsky and Richard T. Jones, “Hot Pursuit” opens in theaters on May 8. Check out the first trailer and some new photos. »

Remember that movie Hot Pursuit from 1987, starring John Cusackc You know, the one where he goes to the Caribbean trying to find his girlfriend on vacation. Apparently, this new Hot Pursuit has absolutely nothing to do with that film. How dare they mislead me by using the title of that '80s classic! (If you haven't seen it, you aren't missing anything). Instead, this is a buddy action comedy starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara, everyone's favorite comedians. Wait, they aren'tc Well, this is certainly news to me. This whole film is news to me, actually. I also don't go seeking information about films starring Sofia Vergara, so I guess that makes sense. The first trailer, as well as three pictures, are available for your eyes to see below. With a rather unimpressive buddy duo in the leads and coming from director Anne Fletcher (27 Dresses, The Guilt Trip), my excitement »

'Hot Pursuit' Trailer with Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon

12 February 2015 4:03 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer and photos from Hot Pursuit, which was previously just known as the Untitled Reese Witherspoon/Sofia Vergara Film. As you can see from the footage below, Hot Pursuit is certainly a fitting title. The story follows an uptight and by-the-book cop (Reese Witherspoon) who tries to protect the sexy and outgoing widow (Sof&#237a Vergara) of a drug boss as they race through Texas pursued by crooked cops and murderous gunmen.

The supporting cast is rounded out by John Carroll Lynch, Robert Kazinsky, Michael Mosley, Richard T. Jones and Mike Birbiglia. While Sof&#237a Vergara is certainly no stranger to the comedy genre, after starring in Modern Family and last year's indie hit Chef, it seems like quite awhile since we've seen Reese Witherspoon in a comedy, after critically-acclaimed performances in dramas such as Wild and Inherent Vice.

Femme Filmmakers Are Opening Up the Pic Pipeline

2 February 2015 3:49 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The chatter championing opportunity for women directors has reached a new peak even while the stats remain dire. According to USC’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, female helmers represented only 4% of the 100 top-grossing films of 2012. In 2014, some high-profile directors made headlines during awards season, including Angelina Jolie with her second feature, “Unbroken,” and Ava DuVernay with “Selma.”

Despite any awards-season snubs, it is important to shine the spotlight on what’s in the pipeline for 2015 and 2016 for femme helmers. According to Melissa Silverstein, founder and editor of website Women and Hollywood, “When you have women behind the scenes in power you see more women on screen — and that’s why this discussion is so important.”

Indeed, Silverstein notes that one of 2015’s highest-profile films, “Fifty Shades of Grey,” is also 2015’s highest-profile female-directed movie, by Sam Taylor-Johnson.

“It’s directed and written by women,” Silverstein says. “While ‘Fifty »

Reese Witherspoon Rejoins Alexander Payne’s Downsizing

8 January 2015 12:27 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Alexander Payne began development on his then-next project, Downsizing, in 2009 before moving onto The Descendants. The troublesome social satire scripted by Payne and long-time writing partner Jim Taylor already had Paul Giamatti and Reese Witherspoon attached before it went belly-up. For whatever reason, 20th Century Fox were reluctant to invest in the story or its heavy use of CGI and lodged the flick into a permanent hiatus.

Late last year, the film underwent a shake-up. When news arrived that Matt Damon had relinquished his role in Zhang Zimou’s China-set epic, The Great Wall, in favour of the lead in Payne’s drama, the project returned to Fox’s development slate. Now, in a strange turn of events, Deadline reports that Witherspoon is back on board as the female lead. Together, the two will play a happily married couple who decide to shrink themselves out of financial concerns. Their logic? »
