Female-driven comedy finds director…

Deadline is saying that ‘The Guilt Trip’ and ‘The Proposal’ director Anne Fletcher is to direct the Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara-led buddy comedy ‘Don’t Mess With Texas.’

Described as a female-driven ‘Midnight Run’-style comedy, the David Feeney and John Quaintance penned film follows a police officer (Witherspoon) and a prisoner (Vergara) who are forced to go on the run together in Texas, with crooked cops in hot pursuit.

Witherspoon and Pacific Standard partner Bruna Papandrea are producing alongside Dana Fox
