Universal studios and Reese Witherspoon are setting up a new pharmaceutical business through their latest production “The Pharma Girl”. The film showcases the core working of the pharma industry that Reese’s character is working for. As she climbs the executive ladder, things start unraveling in front her and how she deals with it forms the crux of the story.

Pharmaceutical industries have mostly been depicted in a negative way especially in films like “The Fugitive” and “The Constant Gardener” which turned out to be controversial. But the film is being produced/directed as a comedy with Reese herself producing it via her Type A banner. Glenn Ficarra and John Requa of “Bad Santa” fame are writing the script while Tracy Falco and Maradith Frenkel are overlooking the project for Universal. Reese who has a won an Oscar previously for a more intense film “Walk the Line” is known more for her comedies like “Election” and “Legally Blonde”. Even presently she is focusing on acting in comedy flicks like Vince Vaughn starrer “Four Christmases” and signing on Columbia’s new production.

    Well yes, Rachel Weisz starrer 2005 film ‘The Constant Gardener’ did put forward the other side of the Pharma industry which might have leaded to a controversy then… When I saw the film I concluded that at the end of the day, it is the reality embedded in facts which gives you a peaceful sleep….
    Now Reese Witherspoon, an actress with proven caliber for comic roles has been chosen here. Let’s see how she manages to bring forward the pharma world and its two-facedness mentioned herein with her unique style and of course as per the script, which may/may not help to wipe out the harsh facts made public by the film -’The Constant Gardener’ earlier.
    Hmm… It will soon get uncovered once the film hit the theatres.

    The movie story itself sounds so’s very difficult to capture the viewer’s interest in such kinda films and sustain it..medicines is not the best medicine.
