Witherspoon to star in ‘Midnight’

Universal Pictures will develop a remake of the 1939 comedy “Midnight” as a star vehicle for Reese Witherspoon. Michael Arndt, who won the Oscar for “Little Miss Sunshine,” will write the screenplay. Stuber/Parent partners Mary Parent and Scott Stuber will produce with Witherspoon and her Type A Films partner Jennifer Simpson. Arndt hatched the idea, which prompted the producers to team. In the original, Claudette Colbert starred as a destitute young woman in Paris who becomes a pawn when a wealthy man tries to get rid of the gigolo wooing his wife.
