LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Reese Witherspoon has lined up another romantic comedy.
The actress is set to star in and co-produce “The Beard,” based on a script by Becca Greene (MTV’s “Good Vibes,”), according to The Hollywood Reporter.
No plot details were available on the project – from Chernin Entertainment – but beard, when applied to a woman, usually refers to a gal who poses as the lady love of a secretly gay man.
Reese, 36, most recently appeared in the rom com, “This Means War,” alongside Chris Pine and Tom Hardy.
Next up for the actress is “Mud,” a drama in which she co-stars with Matthew McConaughey.
A U.S. release date for the film, about a group of young men who help a fugitive avoid capture, has not been announced.
