Disney doing fairytale laffer Happily Ever After with Reese Witherspoon


Disney looks like it will be transforming its fairytales into comedies, according to THR.

The studio has bought the rights to “Happily Ever After”, a story that picks up on the romance of the quintessential prince and princess about 10 years after they have found true love and ridden off into the sunset together. The premise is that the couple soon discovers that even in the world of fairytales, all good relationships require work to keep things sailing smoothly.

“Happily Ever After” will see the gorgeous Reese Witherspoon in a starring role (no doubt the Princess); a role that I can easily see her in, given her slightly feisty personality but clean-cut image.

Kristin Burr and Erin Westerman will oversee the project, which is being developed from a pitch by Nahnatchka Khan (creator of “Don’t Trust The B—- In Apartment 23”),
