Reese Witherspoon & Nicole Kidman Team Up for 'Big Little Lies'

Reese Witherspoon flashes her infectious smile while out and about on Wednesday afternoon (August 6) in Pacific Palisades, Calif.

The 38-year-old actress was spotted later that day grabbing lunch with her good friend Susan Downey, who is currently pregnant with her second child with hubby Robert Downey Jr.

It was just announced that Reese and Nicole Kidman have teamed up to option the rights to make the novel “Big Little Lies” into a movie, according to Deadline.

Reese and Nicole will star in the movie about “three mothers of kindergartners whose apparently perfect lives unravel to the point of murder,” according to Deadline. Their production companies will be producing the film.

FYI: Reese is wearing the Panama Top from tbagslosangeles.

    Sounds fun! I’d love someone like Sandra Bullock or Kathryn Hahn to play the third mom.

  • Sheila

    I know Nicole has young children, but she looks/seems old to play a Mom of kindergaten kids. Most women her ages have transionned to playing Moms of teens/young adults by now. Anyway, Reese nor Nicole can open a open a movie, but maybe together they can and will both have the hit they both desperately need.

  • duh

    @Sheila: Look around in the real world. Nicole isn’t the only 40-something with young kids. Plus, her daughter in Stoker was 18, her daughter in Trespass was 16-17, her kids in Strangerland are also teens. I don’t get why you are knitpicking on something that is not even an issue. And if you tgink Reese and Nicole are desperate than how do you think they were sold the rights? It takes women of their star power to get a movie with 3 female leads made because H’wood is obsessed with reboots, remakes, sequels, and franchise action movies. Thank goodnes there are female actors with production companies to make more than just the next comic book flick.

  • Maria

    @Sheila: One of the mothers of the novel has a teenage child and a kindergartner, so I figure Nicole would play this part in the movie.

  • Daisy

    I think Sheila is just trying to stir the pot. If you look into the book it’s a NY Times bestseller. The author wasn’t trying to unload a piece of junk. I’m sure they had multiple offers and they sell these rights to the people they think will do the best job turning the book into a movie.

  • Diosa

    @Daisy: If that’s true, Reese has a terrible track record. She’s bought the rights to multiple projects that have just dropped into a black hole.

  • Valerie

    Since those two are wearing matching outfits I guess RDJ’s wife is doing photo ops now too.

  • Willa

    @Diosa: Don’t want to burst your bubble but it’s always a gamble to option a book for film rights. No one has a 100% track record. If they do they haven’t bought anything. You needn’t care because it’s not your money is it? The author is thrilled.

    “I met Nicole when she was in Sydney briefly to talk about the book,” she said. “She was absolutely lovely and I loved everything she said about their plans for the book. I’m really thrilled at the idea of them both starring in it.”

    My heart is so happy to see Reese so lucky again ! Her smile on picture 4 is (intergallactic)² ! And she looks so beautiful in this clothes, yep !

    It´s a good idea, that Reese and Nicole Kidman have teamed up to option the rights to make the novel “Big Little Lies” into a movie, cuz´ the story is unique and interesting !
    ***
    Reese you latest Instagram-Foto (a screenshot of the movie “Fear”, where you can be seen with crop tops) is interesting, too. It has a connection to the movie you wanna produce with Nicole Kidman:
    1. Both movies content drama and tension.
    2. In the movie “Fear”, your played the character “Nicole”, now you´ll produce a movie with another (true) Nicole (Nicole Kidman). And this movie will content elements of psychodrama, too.
    ***
    The cock on the shopping-bag of picture # 18 reminds me of the hens, that Reese had at Ochai in the past. Reese has a GREAT HEART for animals. She even cared of a hen, that had broken its leg.

    1000-SUNS-POWER-FOREVERRRReese´sChoiceForNewMoviesIsAlwaysExcellent, yep !
    And Reese is the best drama-actress of the whole planet, yep !

    To avoid any misunderstandings:
    Jared, the **** should be the male gender of that animal. That means, the opposite of “hen”.
    In other words:
    The female gender is “hen” and the male gender is “c o c k”.
    Not that ugly slang word !
    That´s what happens, when words have multisemantic meanings.

  • Dirk_Reese-Fan

    OK, obviously, “rooster” is the better word for the male gender of that animal in America.
