Will play a princess in new Disney project.

THR is reporting that Reese Witherspoon has signed on to produce and star in the romantic fairy-tale comedy ‘Happily Ever After’ for Walt Disney Pictures.

Based on a pitch by Nahnatchka Khan (‘American Dad!,’ ‘Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23’), the comedy “catches up with a prince and princess about 10 years after they have ridden off into the sunset for their ‘happily ever after.’ The couple discovers that even in fairy tale land, you have to work to keep your relationship and life together.”

Disney’s Kristin Burr and Erin Westerman will oversee development with Witherspoon producing through her Pacific Standard banner with partner Bruna Papandrea.
