Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon’s new company Hello Sunshine is set to produce Gail Honeyman’s upcoming novel ELEANOR OLIPHANT IS COMPLETELY FINE and Catherine Steadman’s novel SOMETHING IN THE WATER.

Something in the Water will be adapted and has been acquired by FOX 2000 for Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter to produce with Temple Hill’s Marty Bowen, Wyck Godfrey and Jaclyn Hunting. Witherspoon will develop, but Eleanor Oliphant could be one that she might star in.

Witherspoon has been the one behind producing other adaptions like Gone Girl and Wild and the HBO series Big Little Lies before splitting with Pacific Standard partner Bruna Papandrea, formed Hello Sunshine and set Neustader to be the Head of Film and TV, with the goal of continuing to find female-centric literary projects for film and TV.

Eleanor Oliphant tells the story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine who goes from living a lonely life to realizing the only way to survive is to open your heart. The novel was published by the Penguin Random House imprint Pamela Dornan Books.

Something in the Water is about a woman whose life is on the upswing. She’s about to get married and is establishing a successful career as a documentary filmmaker. Then she’s thrown a curveball that challenges her ethics and priorities and her life begins to slip from her grasp.
