Nicole Kidman will star in the 20th Century Fox remake of How to Marry a Millionaire. The willowy, stunner will produce the project through her very own Fox-based Blossom Films. Anna Nicole is rolling in her grave, that role was waiting for her.
Sacha Gervasi, who wrote Steven Spielberg's The Terminal, will pen the screenplay, which will be a contemporary-set reinterpretation of the Marilyn Monroe classic. The original, a Technicolor comedy that was released by Fox in 1953, launched Monroe to stardom.
Plot details for the updated Millionaire are being kept under wraps, but it is described as a complete overhaul of the original story. I really hope this doesn't turn out to be another Stepford Wives or Bewitched. Nicole seems to like remaking classics where the script innovation falls flat. Nonetheless, I'm sure it will be a hit!
Yours Truly, Tim
