Time for Reese Witherspoon to unleash her inner “13 Going on 30” self because that’s what this film is reminding me of. Deadline reports that Witherspoon has attached herself to star in “Wish List”, a Disney comedy about an overly imaginative little girl who makes ten wishes at a wishing well. They don’t come true because her coin never reached the bottom and eventually she loses her inner child and becomes a full grown and ambitious career woman. Some 25 years later, the coin is dislodged, falls to the bottom and she has to deal with the ramifications of 10 kid wishes coming true all at once.
So like said above, sounds like “13 Going on 30” meets “Bedtime Stories”. Not that there’s anything wrong with films like that, they tend to do alright at the box office so this could be a hit for Witherspoon and Disney.
Originally, the film was developed as a vehicle for a male star, but now it’s being retooled for Witherspoon, who was last seen in “Water for Elephants”. Aren’t you a lucky duck, Mrs. Witherspoon?
Witherspoon will next be seen in “This Means War” opposite Chris Pine and Tom Hardy and will be directed by McG.
