Reese Witherspoon set to star in ‘Sex Tape’ with Jason Segel

Duo reportedly in talks to appear in new rom-com

Reece Witherspoon is set to star alongside Jason Segel in Sex Tape, a new rom-com from Sony Pictures.

According to Deadline.com, the pair are the studio’s first choice for the lead couple in the film, with Nick Stoller in talks to direct.

The film, which was acquired by the studio in a seven-figure deal in June, follows a married couple who take a night off from family life to spice things up by making a sex tape.

However, the following morning they notice the tape is missing and start a desperate search to find it.

Witherspoon is also slated to star in This Means War next year. The action comedy will also feature Tom Hardy, Chris Pine and Chelsea Handler.

Meanwhile, Bad Teacher star Segel is also due to appear in The Five-Year Engagement and This Is Forty next year.

It’d be his second hook up with Stoller in recent times, after the pair wrote the new Muppets move together.
