Reese Witherspoon is a Pharm Girl


Universal Pictures is developing Pharm Girl, an aspirational comedy centering on one woman’s odyssey through the pharmaceutical business, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Bad Santa writers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa are penning the screenplay and in talks to direct. Witherspoon is producing via her Type A production company and attached to the lead role.

The project centers on a woman (Witherspoon) who gets a job at a pharmaceutical powerhouse but begins to see the underbelly of the industry as she rises through the company’s ranks.
