Witherspoon First Major Star to Tackle The Bell Witch

I guess three ‘Bell Witch’ movies in development aren’t enough as Universal Pictures has acquired Don Winston’s spec script Our Family Troubles and will develop the drama as a starring vehicle for Reese Witherspoon, according to Variety. The Drama (with some horror history), which will get a new title, casts Witherspoon as a first-time mother so plagued by unexplained phenomena that she doubts her own sanity. When she returns to her Tennessee home, she fixates on the legend of the Bell Witch and becomes convinced the evil spirit is intent on harming her son.
