Reese Witherspoon Takes The Beard


Reese Witherspoon is attached to headline the Chernin Entertainment comedy The Beard, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter. The script arrives from newcomer Becca Greene.

Details on the plot of The Beard are few, but it is said to involve Witherspoon’s character serving as a fake girlfriend for one or more men so that they can cover up the fact that they’re gay.

Witherspoon can next be seen in Mud and Devil’s Knot. She’ll produce The Beard alongside Peter Chernin.
