Pacific Standard


Reese Witherspoon’s Pacific Standard, a production company that the actress formed earlier this month, has decided on its first project, and it sounds like something that could be both popular among and enriching for little girls. Witherspoon and her people have decided to adapt M.A. Larson’s “Pennyroyal’s Princess Boot Camp” series of children’s novels, which are apparently about a boot camp where young princesses are trained to do battle against wicked witches. According to Heat Vision, Larson’s first “Princess” book is his debut as an author, and he’s set the series up as a two-book deal with Putnam publishing. A Googling of these “Princess” books and a children’s author named M.A. Larson is currently bringing up next to nothing, so it appears that the debut in this series has yet to be released. We’ll just have to trust Witherspoon’s word that they actually exist somewhere. About her attraction to the mysterious boot camp books, and why she intends on both producing and taking a supporting role in the upcoming film adaptations, Witherspoon says, “Finally, there is a princess story that reflects the values young women truly want to embody. These princesses are strong, independent, and fierce, and the knights are their match. In telling their story, Larson has created a magical universe that everyone will love to get lost in.”
