Warner Bros. has released the first trailer and photos from Hot Pursuit, which was previously just known as the Untitled Reese Witherspoon/Sofia Vergara Film. As you can see from the footage below, Hot Pursuit is certainly a fitting title. The story follows an uptight and by-the-book cop (Reese Witherspoon) who tries to protect the sexy and outgoing widow (Sofía Vergara) of a drug boss as they race through Texas pursued by crooked cops and murderous gunmen.
The supporting cast is rounded out by John Carroll Lynch, Robert Kazinsky, Michael Mosley, Richard T. Jones and Mike Birbiglia. While Sofía Vergara is certainly no stranger to the comedy genre, after starring in Modern Family and last year's indie hit Chef, it seems like quite awhile since we've seen Reese Witherspoon in a comedy, after critically-acclaimed performances in dramas such as Wild and Inherent Vice.
Anne Fletcher (The Proposal) directs this outrageous comedy, which hits theaters on May 8. If that wasn't enough, we also have three new photos that you can check out, featuring Reese Witherspoon and Sofía Vergara before the comedy hits theaters in just a few short months. Do you think Reese Witherspoon and Sofía Vergara could be the next great comedy team? Chime in with your thoughts below.
