Riding the wave of meta fairy tale revamps comes the new film Happy Ever After starring Reese Witherspoon. Disney has just picked up the film, which has its lead actress in a starring and producing credit. Happily Ever After is said to take place about a decade after the traditional kiss between Princess and Prince Charming and typical cut to credits. The movie’s take on the genre is to ask what happens next? And how dysfunctional will it be? The Hollywood Reporter states that the film was originally a pitch by Nahnatchka Khan, the creator of the recently deceased Don’t trust the B- in Apartment 23. Witherspoon’s Pacific Standard partner Bruna Papandrea, and John Jacobs of Smart Entertainment are on board to produce the film, which will also see Zac Unterman in an executive producer credit. The family friendly and crowd pleasing nature of the film will no doubt appeal to Witherspoon as her reputation as “America’s Sweetheart” has been called in to question as of late. Her drunken ride with her husband and consequential verbal altercation with the police have caused some to question where she stands in American Culture. The same studio that brought 2002’s Sweet Home Alabama is giving Witherspoon another chance to win America’s heart. In an age of television and film that sees unique spins on the Fairy Tale genre on a daily basis, Happily Ever After will have to work hard to compete. The highly ambitious universe of Once Upon A Time and the self aware snark of Tangled have set the bar high on such adaptations. In order to stand out and see critical and financial success Happily Ever After has to find a way to have a fresh take on a genre that is slowly becoming common place.
