The first trailer for Hot Pursuit is here and if the pairing of Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara seems a bit off, just give the buddy comedy a shot with the first teaser.
Vergara is a witness to the trial of a drug cartel leader and one-by-one, his witnesses have been turning up dead.
Enter Witherspoon’s small town Southern cop who has been charged with bringing Vergara to Dallas so she can testify. I mean, we’re sure she’s safe.
Comic mayhem ensues and as this buddy road trip comedy is from the director of The Proposal, Anne Fletcher, we cannot wait to see what she does with this built-for-comedy concept.
And as we’ve seen numerous times in Witherspoon’s life, she is quite adept at playing her Southern roots for laughs. And Vergara is all about the laughs every week on Modern Family. This thing might surprise quite a few people when it lands in theaters May 8.
It also stars Robert Kazinsky, Mike Birbiglia and John Carrol Lynch.
Warner Bros., New Line and MGM has also released the first stills from Hot Pursuit, check them out below!
