Director eyes fantasy comedy.
‘Bridesmaids’ director Paul Feig is in negotiations to direct Reese Witherspoon in the Walt Disney Pictures comedy ‘Wish List.’
The plot follows a woman who, as “overly imaginative little girl makes ten wishes at a wishing well. They don’t come true because her coin never reached the bottom and eventually she loses her inner child and becomes a full grown and ambitious career woman. Some 25 years later, the coin is dislodged, falls to the bottom and she has to deal with the ramifications of 10 kid wishes coming true all at once.”
Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger (‘Kung-Fu Panda,’ ‘Monsters vs. Aliens,’ ‘King of the Hill’) penned the screenplay, which was originally developed with a male lead.
