Wish List tells the story of a little girl who makes ten wishes and throws a coin into a wishing well. The wishes don’t come true, however, because the coin gets stuck and doesn’t hit the bottom of the well. Twenty-five years later, the coin becomes dislodged and the now grown-up career woman faces the consequences of what happens when all of her childhood wishes finally come true.

The film is being produced by Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray, who last worked on Disney’s Secretariat together. Jack & Jill creator Randi Mayem Singer is writing Wish List’s script.

Wish List was originally meant for a male lead, but is being reworked for Witherspoon, who was recently seen out and about in Brentwood, California.
