… or should I say NIIICCE? In any event it looks like the woman who helped the once sane Joaquin Phoenix walk the line is looking to go a little loony herself with Fox Searchlight.
Variety reports this morning that Fox Searchlight has acquired screen rights to Jen Sacks’ Nice, which will be developed as a potential star vehicle for Witherspoon, who’s also producing.
Nice centers upon a magazine writer who accidentally kills her boyfriend. She finds a way to get rid of the body and discovers that killing boyfriends is easier than breaking up with them. Ain’t it the truth?
Ben Queen will adapt the story and hopes to maintain the book’s dark and edgy feel. Guess we’ll see about that one. The last thing I think of when Reese comes to mind is dark and edgy.
