Fox Searchlight Lands Hot Spec ‘Pale Blue Dot’ With Reese Witherspoon Attached (Exclusive)

After conquering the wilderness together, Fox Searchlight and Reese Witherspoon are teaming up again as the studio has acquired the original spec script “Pale Blue Dot” with Witherspoon attached to star.

Witherspoon will produce along with her producing partner Bruna Papandrea through their Pacific Standard production banner. Brown and Diguiseppi are exec producing.

Claudia Lewis, David Greenbaum and Taylor Friedman are overseeing for Searchlight.

Wild Blu-Ray Review – Reese Witherspoon Takes A Mental Hike

7 April 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Based on the memoir by Cheryl Strayed, Wild follows along as Strayed (Reese Witherspoon) suddenly decides to hike the Pacific Crest Trail, more than a thousand miles of rough territory, all by herself.

The intensely personal story is well-suited to Witherspoon, and gets a lot of its power by way of director Jean-Marc Vallée and his ability to frame a scene, and work a conversation to its best emotional effect, in much the way he managed in Dallas Buyers Club‘s more subdued scenes.

The film is about as straight-forward, and difficult to relate, as Eat Pray Love. In this case, Strayed adds a level of difficulty, and perhaps stupidity, to her journey by tackling something she isn’t prepared for, but the “life-altering journey” is the same.

The film kicks off on the middle of the road, and then dances through various pasts – on the trail, through the drug use and failed marriage, »
