Reese Witherspoon,
25, has only been at it since the late '90s, when she took a
leave of absence from Stanford University to try acting, but
already, reports Variety, the "Legally Blonde" star is about
to start commanding an $8 million paycheck. That, says the
trade journal, will be her fee to star in a drama set in the
world of professional women's tennis that begins shooting in
May. In the as-yet-untitled film, Witherspoon is to play a
former wonder-woman of the court who burns out at the U.S.
Open and takes a job as a resident tennis pro at a wealthy
country club. But then there's the climb back to the pro

Interesting....she kinda reminds me of Amanda Coetzer, but it does sound a bit like the Jennifer Capriati story. Stay tuned.......

Yes, I wonder whose game Reese will model hers on in the movie. I also wonder if she'll do the physical work to look like a pro player too. I guess the player she comes closest to resembling is Amanda Coetzer. But it sounds like they're going for a Jennifer Capriati-type angle. Hollywood waif-types definitely need not apply. Reese might need to work out some.

Possible that there will be cameos? Anna is the obvious choice. How about Alex Stevenson? Serena has done some acting. Monica has done some acting. Will the movie show Reese beating any of these girls? I will be pissed if it does! :( ;)
