Reese Witherspoon killed it in Big Little Lies. For those of you who think that that’s a spoiler, I’m not telling. Witherspoon’s production company, Hello Sunshine is bringing more thrill to the screen. Hello Sunshine is Witherspoon’s new venture after parting ways with the production company, Pacific Standard, co-founded with Bruna Papandrea. Pacific Standard was responsible for bringing Cheryl Strayed’s Wild to the screen as well as Gone Girl and Big Little Lies.
Now, with Hello Sunshine, Witherspoon is bringing Something in the Water by Catherine Steadman and Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman to the screen.
Something in the Water follows a picture-perfect couple whose honeymoon starts with a large cash find and ends with them dead. Something in the Water was written by Downton Abbey star, Catherine Steadman and is being adapted by Fox 2000.
Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine focuses on a 29-year-old whose life has been shaped by abuse. Eleanor is left scarred and awkward. While working in an office, her co-workers attempt to bring her out of her shell.
Can Witherspoon fail when it comes to book-to-screen adaptations?
