From New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures comes the comedy Hot Pursuit, starring Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon (Walk the Line, Wild) and Sofía Vergara (Chef, TV’s Modern Family), under the direction of Anne Fletcher (The Proposal).
In Hot Pursuit, an uptight and by-the-book cop (Witherspoon) tries to protect the sexy and outgoing widow (Vergara) of a drug boss as they race through Texas, pursued by crooked cops and murderous gunmen.
Fletcher directs from a screenplay written by David Feeney (TV’s New Girl) & John Quaintance (TV’s Ben & Kate). John Carroll Lynch (Crazy, Stupid, Love.) and Robert Kazinsky (Pacific Rim) also star.
The film is produced by Bruna Papandrea (Wild, Gone Girl), Reese Witherspoon and Dana Fox, with Jeff Waxman, Sofía Vergara and Luis Balaguer serving as executive producers.
Fletcher’s behind-the-scenes creative team is comprised of several of her collaborators from The Proposal, including director of photography Oliver Stapleton, editor Priscilla Nedd Friendly, production designer Nelson Coates and costume designer Catherine Marie Thomas. The composer is Christophe Beck (Frozen).
New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures present, a Foxy/Pacific Standard production, an Anne Fletcher film Hot Pursuit. Set to hit theaters on May 8, 2015, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
