Reese Witherspoon is to revive one of silver screen starlet Claudette Colbert's most famous roles in a remake of 1939 film MIDNIGHT. Oscar-winning Little Miss Sunshine screenwriter Michael Arndt, a longtime fan of the original film, will update the movie for Witherspoon. In the original, Colbert played a struggling Parisienne who is hired to woo a gigolo away from a wealthy man's cheating wife.
