Hollywood star Reese Witherspoon and talk show queen Oprah Winfrey are headed to New Zealand.
Oscar-winning actress Witherspoon and Winfrey - one of the most recognisable faces in the world - are destined for Queenstown on a two-week filming trip.
A source told the Otago Daily Times the duo are set for a fortnight of shooting on location near Lake Hawea in central Otago on a NZ143million movie project called A Wrinkle in Time.
Luggage packed and ready to travel, an excited Witherspoon, who won the Academy Award for best actress in 2006 for her portrayal of June Carter in
-the acclaimed film on the life of American singer-songwriter Johnny Cash - has taken to social media today to confirm her first ever trip to New Zealand.
Top TV actress Mindy Kaling - star of hit series The Mindy Project - is also part of the film.
Kaling too has also taken to social media to announce her working trip - with Witherspoon replying to say she can't wait to go exploring with Kaling.
The ODT reported the celebrities will be housed at a private residence in Wanaka, with another source saying the filming will happen at Hunter Valley Station, which is close to Lake Hawea.
Fortinbras Productions, a Disney Enterprises company, was given permission to film by Queenstown Lakes District Council on January 25.
