Newly expectant mother Reese Witherspoon has another bun in the oven, by which I mean her brand new production company Pacific Standard has snagged the rights to M.A. Larson's children's book series Pennyroyal's Princess Boot Camp. Witherspoon will produce and likely take a supporting role in the potential fantasy franchise, about a school that trains young princesses to combat a coven of evil witches. [THR]

• Downton Abbey’s Lady Sybil Crawley — a.k.a. Jessica Brown Findlay — has landed the lead female role in Akiva Goldsman‘s adaptation of Mark Helprin‘s acclaimed 1983 novel Winter’s Tale. In the heightened period fantasy/drama hybrid, Findlay will play a wealthy young woman dying of consumption who, as one does, falls in love with a desperate thief when he breaks into her massive mansion. Aaron Johnson (Kick Ass) and Garrett Hedlund (TRON: Legacy) are reportedly in the running for the thief role, and Russell Crowe is likely to join as the thief’s main antagonist with the most excellent name Pearly Soames. It will be Goldsman’s directorial debut. [Deadline] READ FULL STORY
