Reese Witherspoon To Protect Sofia Vergara In Hot Pursuit

Female lead comedies are becoming more and more common, but finding one without Melissa McCarthy is rare… here we have a trailer for the new film Hot Pursuit starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara.

From Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures and New Line Cinema comes the comedy Hot Pursuit, starring Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon (Walk the Line, Wild) and Sofia 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) 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 Bruna Papandrea (Wild, Gone Girl), Reese Witherspoon and Dana Fox, with Jeff Waxman, Sofia Vergara and Luis Balaguer serving as executive producers.

Hot Pursuit hits theaters May 8th
