Wild Oscar nominee Reese Witherspoon and Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara are teaming up for this summer’s action comedy Hot Pursuit, the trailer of which EW & People are exclusively premiering online. In the film out May 8, Witherspoon plays a Southern cop who must protect Vergara’s witness after killers target the mismatched pair.
