Deadline revealed the Little Fires Everywhere actress is set to appear in not one, but two Netflix rom-coms. The streaming service has signed her to star in two upcoming projects called Your Place or Mine and The Cactus. We don’t know about you, but this is exactly the news we needed to hear.
Your Place or Mine will focus on two long-distance friends as their lives begin to change once one decides to pursue their dreams while the other volunteers to watch their friend’s teenage son. The Cactus, based on a bestselling novel, is about a woman’s unexpected pregnancy at age 45 that causes her to rethink her entire life. Aside from starring, Witherspoon will also be producing both films under her production company Hello Sunshine.
"We have been looking for the right feature opportunities to collaborate with Ted Sarandos, Scott Stuber and the entire team at Netflix for a while and we couldn’t be more excited to be working with them on two romantic comedies," Witherspoon told Deadline. "Both Sarah Haywood’s and Aline Brosh McKenna’s stories blend everything we love about traditional rom-coms with strong, smart and determined female leads."
