Reese buys rights to teen murder story

Reese Witherspoon's production company is developing a film based on the book Under the Bridge, a true-crime story about a high school murder. This should ring some bells for Canadian readers - the story chronicles the 1997 murder of Reena Virk in Victoria, BC, and the eight high school students who were charged in the case. Type A Films, Witherspoon's company, has bought both film rights and life rights to the author's story, with the possibility of the author herself becoming a character in the film.
