Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara: The Next Great Comedy Duo?

Hope you like your odd couples super odd: Deadline reports that Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara are attached to star opposite each other in Don't Mess With Texas. It tells the story of a cop and a prisoner running from dirty cops in Texas. There's no word yet on which will play which, but if 'Spoon ends up the prisoner, maybe it will be revealed that her recent arrest was just a Method acting exercise. Before you get too excited for what will be a silly, silly movie, it isn't set to start production until March 2014. Do you think they'll be more like Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau or old Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau?
