Los Angeles, May 6 (IANS) Actress Reese Witherspoon and producer Bruna Papandrea’s Pacific Standard banner is developing a film adaptation of S.J. Watson’s thriller novel “Second Life”.

“Second Life” centers on a woman who creates an online persona to find the truth behind her sister’s violent murder – and starts to lose herself in the lies she creates, reports

Witherspoon and Papandrea teamed with Warner Bros to produce action-comedy “Hot Pursuit”, which stars Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara and will release on Friday.

An adaptation of Watson’s mystery novel “Before I Go to Sleep” was released last year with Nicole Kidman, Mark Strong, Colin Firth and Anne-Marie Duff starring.

Witherspoon and Papandrea formed Pacific Standard in 2012 in order to fill the vacuum for movies with female protagonists. They produced “Wild”, “Gone Girl” and “Hot Pursuit” and are developing an adaptation of the novel “Big Little Lies”, “The Engagements”, “Pennyroyal’s Princess Boot Camp” and “The Outliers”.
