Ok, this movie is going to be hilarious! Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon have teamed up to do a buddy-girl movie that from the looks of this trailer, is going to give Sofia Vergara her first big box-office break. Vergara, the Colombian Jessica Rabbit, has been looking for some time for the perfect vehicle to ride her popularity and good looks. This might be the transitory project that launches her solo A- List career. I think it’ll hit and hit well.
Director Anne Fletcher (“The Proposal”) knows how to make fun comedies with women and this comedy looks like a winner.
Official synopsis: 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”) and Dana Fox (“What Happens in Vegas”) & Katherine Silberman (TV’s “Ben & Kate”). John Carroll Lynch (“Crazy, Stupid, Love.”) and Rob Kazinsky (“Pacific Rim”) also star.
The film is produced by Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara and Luis Balaguer serving as executive producers.
“Hot Pursuit” is set to hit theaters beginning May 8, 2015.
