New Line Boards Witherspoon & Vergara Comedy

New Line/Warner Bros. Pictures have hopped onboard with MGM to co-produce an untitled female buddy action comedy previously titled “Don’t Mess With Texas”.

The story follows a by-the-book cop (Reese Witherspoon) who is trying to protect the sexy and outgoing widow of a drug boss (Sofia Vergara) as they race through Texas pursued by crooked cops and murderous gunmen.

Anne Fletcher is directing from a script by David Feeney and John Quaintance. Filming is slated to begin in May in New Orleans ahead of a May 2015 release.
