Reese Witherspoon

Over two years ago, Reese Witherspoon was attached to star in Wish List, a romantic comedy set up at Disney about an overly imaginative little girl who makes ten wishes at a wishing well. However, her coin never reaches the bottom, and she grows up to lose touch with her inner child. Now the actress is heading into more familiar Disney territory with Happily Ever After, a fairytale romantic comedy that follows a prince and princess about 10 years after they have ridden off into the sunset for their "happily ever after." However, it's not easy as the two learn that even in a magical land, relationships are hard work. Read on!

THR reports Disney picked up the project based on a pitch from Nahnatchka Khan, the creator of the short-lived comedy series "Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23." Witherspoon will also produce through her Pacific Standard banner in a deal that has been gestating for two years. It sounds like Disney just wanted to be in business with Witherspoon again after finding success with the hit romantic comedy Sweet Home Alabama all the way back in 2002. Don't expect this to be just a typical romantic comedy, because Khan also wrote on "American Dad," so this should be a smart, witty fairytale comedy.
