Colombian actress Sofia Vergara can soon be seen in Robert Rodriguez’s Machete Kills alongside Danny Trejo, but her next co-star is a bit different.

Vergara will share the screen with Reese Witherspoon for Don’t Mess With Texas, which is scheduled to begin production in March 2014.

Texas will be produced by Pacific Standard, Witherspoon and Bruna Papandera’s production company. Universal Pictures is said to have acquired the film at the end of a major bidding war. The script was written by David Feeney and John Quaintance.

The action comedy revolves around a prisoner on the run and a cop trying to track her down, though it is unclear which lady will play each role.

Vergara can soon be seen in the Machete sequel and The Smurfs 2, as well and ABC’s “Modern Family.” Witherspoon next stars in the thriller Devil’s Knot. The Louisiana-born actress is currently working on Inherent Vice.
