Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara team-up for buddy comedy

Reese ‘Don’t You Know Who I Am?’ Witherspoon is set to team up with Sofia Vergara in a new action comedy, THR reports.

Anne Fletcher (The Proposal) is tapped to direct the flick, currently untitled but previously christened Don’t Mess With Texas.

Once in development at MGM, New Line and Warner Bros. now have the buddy comedy, set to hit cinemas May 8, 2015.

That’s a plum, blockbuster-period release date, and will certainly test Witherspoon’s fading star-power, as well as Vergara’s ability to convert her TV success to the big screen. (She’s spent much of 2013 and 2014 building her CV in supporting roles.)

Witherspoon will play an uptight cop assigned to protect a drug boss’ widow (Vergara) in Texas.
