The enduring and oft-tortured romance and marriage of Johnny Cash and the Carter Family’s June Carter Cash continues to provide compelling cinematic subject matter. The latest incarnation of the country music saga reaches the small screen May 27, when Lifetime airs director Allison Anders’ new take on the story, “Ring of Fire.” The pic had its premiere screening Tuesday night as part of the Grammy Museum’s “Reel to Reel” film series.
The telepic covers some of the same ground as James Mangold’s 2005 biopic “Walk the Line.” Matt Ross (“American Horror Story”) essays Johnny Cash this time around, but – it being a Lifetime production – the film focuses on June Carter Cash and her long-running struggle to keep her pill-addicted partner straight. Taking her first major screen role since Ang Lee’s 1999 feature “Ride With the Devil,” pop/country singer Jewel portrays Carter Cash from the ages of 22 to 72.

The popular duo was last seen together in the 2005 movie "Walk The Line", for which Witherspoon even won a best actress Academy Award.
They are now set for a big screen reunion in upcoming movie "Inherent Vice", reports dailystar.co.uk.

The story is set in Los Angeles in 1970, and it follows a pot-smoking private detective named Doc Sportello (Phoenix) as he investigates the case of a kidnapped girl. Del Toro would play "an attorney who's always trying to help the protagonist out of trouble, though he's not an actual criminal lawyer." Witherspoon, who starred with Phoenix in Walk The Line, could end up playing the character of Shasta Fay Hepworth. Malone will play "a former drug addict who asks Sportello for help." Short's part isn't specified, but it's minor.
The movie is an adaptation of the book written by Thomas Pynchon. Here's a description of the book:

What is Casting Couch? It’s the news column that’s got its ear to the ground, listening for any juicy tidbits coming out of Cannes. Today people like Uma Thurman, Seann William Scott, Amanda Seyfried, and Bruce Willis all got new jobs. Zach Braff hasn’t yet had much of a career as a film director, but if there’s one thing he’s got more experience shooting than most people, it’s tiny girls wearing giant headphones. So chances are Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick will be a perfect fit for the cast of his new movie, Wish I Was Here. The Wrap is reporting that she’s just joined the film in the role of Janine, a chick who’s into cosplay and who the Josh Gad character becomes enamored with. However you feel about the controversy surrounding Braff’s Kickstarter funding of this film, you have to admit, added »

How's this for a reunion? It looks as if Reese Witherspoon has signed on to be in director Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice, along with none other than her Walk the Line costar Joaquin Phoenix, Deadline reports. Based on the 2009 detective novel of the same name by the reclusive novelist Thomas Pynchon, the movie adaptation will also feature Owen Wilson and Benicio Del Toro, with The Wrap reporting that Martin Short and Jena Malone have also just joined the cast. The coming together of Witherspoon and Phoenix will mark the duo's first collaboration since the 2005 Johnny Cash biopic. Mind you, there won't be any singing this time around, but this bit of casting news is still, er, »
After the success (or, to some, failure) of The Master, Paul Thomas Anderson is already working on his next project: Inherent Vice. News surfaced today that Reese Witherspoon, Jena Malone and Martin Short have all added their names onto the already brilliant cast list.
The trio will be joing main man Joaquin Phoenix, Owen Wilson and Benicio Del Toro for the crime thriller. Adapted from the novel written by Thomas Pynchon, Phoenix will feature as a marijuana-favouring detective, hired to investigate the disappearance and murder of a girl he used to date. The only other confirmed role is Jena’s; she will be playing an ex-drug addict who goes to Phoenix for help. I have a sneaky feeling Reese will be playing the now-deceased ex-lover…
Of course, this wouldn’t be the first time Joaquin and Reese have worked together – Walk The Line, anyone?

The last name to join Paul Thomas Anderson's adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's book Inherent Vice was Owen Wilson, but now a trio of co-stars have just been added to the comedic detective story. Deadline has word that Reese Witherspoon is taking the female lead, a role once rumored for Charlize Theron, while The Wrap has pegged Martin Short to make his first live-action film appearance since The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause, along with the addition of Jena Malone, who will be seen in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire this fall. That's quite an eclectic blend of talent, and none have worked with Anderson yet. For those just joining us, the story follows a stoner detective named Larry "Doc" Sportello (Joaquin Phoenix) trying to solve the case of a kidnapped girl he used to date. Witherspoon is taking the female lead which will reunite the actress with »

After assembling a superteam of Hollywood’s shaggiest, frequently stewed male actors for its stoner detective story, Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice has also stirred the increasingly potent Reese Witherspoon into the mix. Anderson was clearly impressed with Witherspoon’s recent audition reel, in which she deftly interpreted Thomas Pynchon’s tale of inebriated upstarts challenging the police, though it’s also the culmination of years of trying to work together, after Anderson originally sought her for Amy Adams’ role in The Master. She’ll join her Walk The Line co-star Joaquin Phoenix and previously confirmed co-stars Benicio Del »
Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice looks to be filling out nicely as Reese Witherspoon, Martin Short and Jena Malone have all joined the cast. For those with good memories, Witherspoon was at one time going to play the role that eventually went to Amy Adams in The Master. Now she's finally going to be able to take part in a PTA film and opposite her Walk the Line co-star no less, Joaquin Phoenix, who plays the lead character in the adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's novel. The story follows 1960s stoner P.I. Larry "Doc" Sportello (Phoenix) who is hired by an ex-girlfriend to investigate the disappearance of her wealthy lover. Owen Wilson and Benicio Del Toro also star. I have to assume Witherspoon is taking the role once thought to belong to Charlize Theron, which isn't confirmed but one can assume would be that of the ex-girlfriend, Shasta Hepworth. »

Reese Witherspoon, probably beyond cool with moving on from that crazy arrest story already, is reteaming with her Walk the Line co-star Joaquin Phoenix for Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice. The Thomas Pynchon adaptation will also feature Benicio del Toro and Owen Wilson. With no word on who Witherspoon will play, Indiewire hazards a guess at "Shasta Fay Hepworth, the ex girlfriend of Doc Sportello (Phoenix), who sets the plot in motion, though she could also be Hope Harlingen, the supposed widow of missing musician Coy." Indiewire also reminds us Anderson originally wanted Witherspoon for Amy Adams's role in The Master. Trivia! »

Paul Thomas Anderson is busy preparing his next film, Inherent Vice. Based on the Thomas Pynchon novel of the same name, the cast that Anderson has assembled thus far is damn impressive. Already set to star Joaquin Phoenix in the lead role, with Benicio Del Toro and Owen Wilson supporting him, the director has now brought on three more talented individuals as Reese Witherspoon, Martin Short and Jena Malone have all joined.
Witherspoon was actually supposed to star in PTA’s last film, The Master. That obviously didn’t work out but luckily, this time the two were able to make it happen. No word yet on who she will play but those who’ve read the novel guess that it will be Shasta Fay Hepworth, the ex-girlfriend of Phoenix’s character, Doc Sportello. Whoever she ends up playing, it’ll be nice to see the actress re-unite with her Walk The Line co-star. »
