New Line Cinema / Warner Bros Partner With MGM On Reese Witherspoon Action Comedy ‘Don’t Mess With Texas’, Which Takes ‘Mean Moms’ Date

reese witherspoonSofiaVergaraNew Line Cinema/Warner Bros have stepped in to co-produce the Reese WitherspoonSofia Vergara buddy comedy known under its previous working title as Don’t Mess With Texas. The comedy originally was set up at Universal but ended up at MGM, where Witherspoon has had a long relationship. Her first film The Man In The Moon was produced by MGM, and she became a breakout comedy star with its Legally Blonde series. The new film, which will be retitled, will roll before the cameras this month in New Orleans for a Mother’s Day (May 8) 2015 release with Anne Fletcher (The Guilt Trip, The Proposal) at the helm.

NL and Warner Bros. have not scheduled a date for Moms yet. (more…)
