Once upon a time, Reese Witherspoon was slated to play Carrie Stetko, a U.S. marshal sent to Antartica to solve a murder, in the big screen adaptation of Greg Rucka's Whiteout.
Sadly, the project languished in developmental hell for the last few years and appeared dead.
Now producer Joel Silver has piccked up the rights to the project. While Witherspoon is no longer attached, Silver's interest in the project bodes well for it. Silver has produced some amazing films including Lethal Weapon, Die Hard, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and V for Vendetta.
Silver plans to have the cameras rolling sometime this winter, with a release in 2008.
