TulsaWorld: Ree Drummond, best known as the Pioneer Woman, confirmed via Twitter that her story has been optioned.

The entertainment blog Deadline reported that Columbia Pictures is in talks with Reese Witherspoon to play the Pioneer Woman.

On Thursday, Drummond tweeted to her fans: "Think Green Acres meets Harlequin Romance meets Forest Gump."

She later wrote: "My only demand was that my brother Mike play himself. I'm still waiting to hear back on that one..."

Ree Drummond's story of growing up on a country club golf course in Bartlesville, moving to the bright lights and big city of Los Angeles and then meeting the unexpected love of her life, the Marlboro Man, has Hollywood written all over it.

Drummond wrote that it's her book "Black Heels to Tractor Wheels" that's been optioned, not the blog itself.

Drummond's story of her courtship with the Marlboro Man, cattle rancher Ladd Drummond, has captured the thousands of fans on her site The Pioneer Woman.

It's also her down-home style cooking that brings swarms of fans to the blog. Her cookbook, "The Pioneer Woman Cooks," published in November, was on the New York Times bestseller list.

Drummond lives in a ranch near Pawhuska with her husband and four children.
