Nicole Kidman - Bewitched Nicole Kidman in Bewitched
Nicole Kidman, bouncing every which way with her last film Bewitched, has already done well for herself by lining up a whole slew of films for 2006 and 2007. However, Kidman also has a craving for Jules Bass' comic novel Headhunters, something she plans to adapt [personally] into a feature-length film.

Kidman All over Headhunters

According to Variety, Nicole Kidman will star in and produce a bigscreen adaptation of Jules Bass' comic novel Headhunters for Fox 2000 and Regency Enterprises.

Even though Fox optioned the Bass book -- the author's first novel for adults --in 1999, the company has just recently picked up scribes Jez and John Henry Butterworth to write the screenplay for the adaptation. Jez Butterworth and Nicole Kidman have worked together before on Birthday Girl.

Headhunters is about centering four New Jersey women who jet to Monte Carlo and pretend to be rich heiresses in hopes of landing wealthy husbands. Once there, they are targeted by four down-on-their-luck gigolos trying to pass as wealthy playboys. Though the title of the film would hint otherwise, a better title probably would have been Manhunters or Gold-Diggers; at least, in my opinion. I guess Fox is attempting to keep the serious tone to the story by going forward with the same title as the original novel.

Nicole Kidman is currently working on Invasion, The Lady from Shanghai, Happy Feet, Fur and another hex to get Tom Cruise squirted again. Ok, she may not be working on that last part.

Stay tuned for updates.
