Presenting a multi-layered story, the picture takes focus on a Cairo-based CIA analyst whose world gets spinning out of control after witnessing the interrogation of a foreign national by the Egyptian secret police. Witherspoon is billed to portray Isabella El-Ibrahim, the pregnant American wife of an Egyptian-born chemical engineer, who is involved in the interrogation following her husband's arrest as a political prisoner in the post-9/11 tragedy.

Production of the film is scheduled to begin by late November this year around Los Angeles, Washington DC, Morocco, and Cape Town with "Tsotsi" director, Gavin Hood, at helm. Kelley Sane is writing the script while David Kanter, Keith Redmon, Michael Sugar, plus Steve Golin are all producing.

Witherspoon, a native of New Orleans, Lousiana, has been working on her path in entertainment industry since her teens and received vast recognition after playing leading character Elle Woods in Robert Luketic's "Legally Blonde" (2001). Her other upcoming film projects include "Penelope", "Bunny Lake Is Missing", and "Sports Widow."
