According to Variety, Universal Pictures has acquired Don Winston's spec script Our Family Troubles and will develop the drama as a starring vehicle for Reese Witherspoon.

Witherspoon and her Type A Films partner Jennifer Simpson will produce.

The drama, 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.
