Yesterday Reese Witherspoon went Christmas shopping in West Hollywood, and she couldn't stop smiling when we snapped her photo! While the bubbly blonde Oscar winner is undoubtedly excited to be spending the holidays with her family, it seems like a little casting news may be partially responsible for her chipper mood.
It was just announced that Reese is set to star in Devil's Knot, which is the big screen adaptation of Mara Leveritt's nonfiction book on the West Memphis Three. The film follows the brutal murders of three 8-year-old boys and the three teenagers who were convicted of the crime back in 1994. Reese would play the mother of one of the murder victims, and THR reports that her character is initially "convinced of the trio's guilt, but ultimately begins to doubt it." Sounds like an interesting role for her!
