Reese Witherspoon has signed up to star in 'Wish List'.

The Oscar-winning actress - who has made a name for herself in romantic comedies including 'Legally Blonde', 'Sweet Home Alabama' and 'How Do You Know' - will play a woman who, as a child, made 10 wishes in a well after throwing a coin in that becomes stuck.

Although her dreams do not come true when she is younger, the coin she threw in dislodges itself years later, causing all the childhood wishes to come true at once.

'Mrs. Doubtfire' writer Randi Mayem Singer has written The Script for the Disney comedy project, which will be produced by Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray, reports.

The movie was initially intended to have a male lead star, but is now being re-written to accommodate Reese.

The 35-year-old actress - who recently married Hollywood agent Jim Toth - was last seen in romantic drama 'Water for Elephants' with Robert Pattinson, and will next hit cinemas in 'This Means War' alongside Chris Pine and Tom Hardy.
