As Universal Pictures has acquired Don Winston's spec script "Our Family Troubles," the studio will soon start working on the flick. They reportedly will develop the drama mystery genre with Reese Witherspoon proposed to star in.
There in the film Witherspoon is set to portray a first-time mother so plagued by unexplained phenomena that she doubts her own sanity. When she returns to her Tennessee home, she fixates on the legend of the Bell Witch and becomes convinced the evil spirit is intent on harming her son.
Besides starring in, Witherspoon also is in hand to produce along with her Type A Films partner Jennifer Simpson.
