Nicole Kidman has optioned the rights to the novel The Bachelorette Party, by Legally Blonde screenwriter Karen McCullah Lutz
Aussie-based actress Nicole Kidman is eyeing "The Bachelorette Party." She even has optioned the rights to the novel of the same name by "Legally Blonde" screenwriter Karen McCullah Lutz.
"The Bachelorette Party" focuses on Zadie, a Los Angeles schoolteacher who has recently been jilted at the altar. Unhelpfully, her prim, uptight cousin gets engaged to her best male friend soon afterwards, forcing her back into the wedding whirl and reopening her barely healed wounds. Worse, on the night of her cousin's hen party, Zadie sees her cousin commit a drunken indiscretion - presumably while wearing rabbit ears, a cowboy hat and a sash and carrying a penis-shaped handbag - and has to decide whether her loyalties lie with family or friend.
Above all, Kidman also is willing to star in.
