Disney is taking a comedic look at the fairy-tale genre.
The studio has picked up Happily Ever After, a pitch that has Reese Witherspoon attached to star.
She will also produce, along with her Pacific Standard partner Bruna Papandrea, and John Jacobs of Smart Entertainment.
The idea is to catch 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 your life together.
