The Cactus – TBA (Announced)
In addition to the aforementioned Your Place Or Mine, it was also announced at the same time, per Deadline, that Reese Witherspoon is set to star in and produce an adaptation of Sarah Haywood’s The Cactus. The upcoming streaming exclusive follows a reserved woman who’s unexpectedly pregnant at 45, causing her to restructure the life that she has created for herself and leading her into an unconventional journey towards life, love, family, and to learning to accept the unexpected.
The description certainly has an Eat, Pray, Love kind of vibe, though the source material is said to be more comedic. Nevertheless, it’s the second of two romantic comedies that Witherspoon has in store with Netflix, both as a producer and star, which will keep her on the service’s payroll for at least a few years.
Details are also slim on this project otherwise, but we should expect to hear more details about this film and Your Place Or Mine in the months ahead.
