Witherspoon takes Inherent Vice?

Reese Witherspoon won an Oscar for her role in Walk The Line

Reese Witherspoon could be reunited with her Walk The Line co-star Joaquin Phoenix in thriller Inherent Vice.

The Oscar-winning actress is rumoured to be in talks to join Paul Thomas Anderson's upcoming big-screen adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's novel, reported Deadline.

Joaquin - who previously starred in Paul Thomas' film The Master - is already on board the 1970s-set drama as a drug-taking private investigator, as he takes the case of an alleged kidnapping of a former girlfriend.

Reese, who has also signed on to star in Walk The Line director James Mangold's memoir movie Three Little Words, is the latest addition for Inherent Vice, following the casting of Jena Malone, Martin Short, Benicio del Toro and Owen Wilson.

The actress - who was recently arrested for disorderly conduct - next stars in indie drama Mud alongside Matthew McConaughey and real-life crime drama Devil's Knot with Colin Firth.

The 37-year-old, who has begun shooting drama The Good Lie, is also attached to Passengers with Keanu Reeves, the big-screen adaptation of self-help book Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus and Disney film Wish List.
