London: Reese Witherspoon has apparently signed on to star in a biopic of jazz legend Peggy Lee.
The 34-year-old will also produce the film about the singer who died in 2002.
“It’s a passion for Reese, who has long admired Lee,” the Daily Express quoted a source as saying.
Meanwhile, a representative for Witherspoon has dismissed rumours that the actress is ready to marry her agent boyfriend Jim Toth.
The `Legally Blonde` star has been dating Toth for seven months.
