Reese Witherspoon, the actress known of late for underperformers like "This Means War" and "Water for Elephants," has all of a sudden been announcing a whole bunch of new projects. She's more busy than she's been in years! Could it be the critical buzz around her tiny indie "Mud"?
Well, probably not. Witherspoon may be trying to get some good news out there after her arrest in April for disorderly conduct. In the past month, she's signed on for or has circled several new projects:
- "Depth of Field," a comedy about a sports journalist
- "Passengers," a "sci-fi romance" costarring Keanu Reeves
- "Three Little Words," a drama about a child-services volunteer
- "Inherent Vice," the Paul Thomas Anderson film based on a Thomas Pynchon novel (Witherspoon had reportedly been offered the female lead role in "The Master," Anderson's last movie. So we'll see what happens with these movies.)
