This role will be a return to the South for Witherspoon, who was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Deadline also reports that both actresses will be doing much more than gracing their pretty faces in front of the camera; Witherspoon and producer Bruna Papandrea will produce through their Pacific Standard banner, which they launched together in 2012.
We look forward to seeing Vergara and Witherspoon's comedic chemistry on the big screen. We already know Vergara is going to kill it in the film - after all, she plays Gloria Pritchett-Delgado on Modern Family.
