(FROM VARIETY) ? Ben Stiller and Reese Witherspoon are starring in Cameron Crowe’s as-yet untitled romantic comedy adventure for Columbia Pictures. Crowe will direct from his own screenplay and is producing along with Scott Rudin. The plot is being kept under wraps. Columbia beat out four rival studios in a bidding war over the fully-developed project, which is scheduled to start shooting in January, once Stiller and Witherspoon’s schedules open up. Stiller next will be seen later this summer in Tropic Thunder, which he also co-wrote, produced and directed, and he is shooting Night at the Museum 2: Escape From the Smithsonian. Witherspoon’s upcoming projects include Four Christmases, with Vince Vaughn, and she is voicing characters for DreamWorks Animation’s Monsters vs. Aliens. (Variety)
