The Book Standard reports that Reese Witherspoon will star in a movie adaptation of Jeff Long’s novel THE RECKONING.
The story centers on a photojournalist who arrives in Cambodia to cover the U.S.
military search for the remains of an American pilot shot down during the
Vietnam War. Ted Tally (Red Dragon, The
Silence of the Lambs) penned the screenplay, which is out to directors. Witherspoon will produce the project along with Type
A’s Jennifer Simpson. Long’s
book was published by Atria in July 2004.
