Reese Witherspoon to Star in, Produce Supernatural Thriller ‘Cold’

Reese Witherspoon will star in and produce Lionsgate’s supernatural thriller “Cold.”

Lionsgate is already developing a movie version of “Luckiest Girl Alive” with Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea through their Pacific Standard Films banner.

“Cold” is based on a pitch by screenwriter Bill Marsilii, whose credits include “Deja Vu” and “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo” at Disney.

Witherspoon and Papandea formed Pacific Standard in 2012 in order to remedy the absence of movies with female protagonists. They have since produced “Wild,” “Gone Girl” and “Hot Pursuit.” The banner has been developing a dozen projects, including Gayle Tzemach Lemmon’s “Ashley’s War” at Fox 2000, “Big Little Lies,” “The Engagements,” “Pennyroyal’s Princess Boot Camp” and “The Outliers.” They recently set up a movie version of Wendy Walker’s upcoming thriller novel “All Is Not Fogotten” at Warner Bros.

Marsilii is repped by ICM Partners and Lichter, Grossman, Nichols, Adler and Feldman.

Witherspoon is handled by CAA, LBI Entertainment and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush and Kaller.

The news was first reported by the Hollywood Reporter.
