Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara are set to team up for a buddy comedy called Don’t Mess with Texas. Deadline reports that Universal Pictures today took the rights to the original spec script by David Feeney and John Quaintance.
The story finds a cop and her prisoner forced to work together when they find themselves being chased by a town of crooked cops.
Witherspoon recently starred in Jeff Nichol’s Mud and can soon be seen in a diverse range of projects like Atom Egoyan’s West Memphis Three tale Devil’s Knot, Brian Kirk’s science fiction romance Passengers and the Paul Thomas Anderson-directed Thomas Pynchon adaptation Inherent Vice.
