Fox, Kidman walk down the aisle

Studio lines up 'Bachelorette' for thesp

Twentieth Century Fox has just optioned “The Bachelorette Party,” the new novel from “Legally Blonde” scribe Karen McCullah Lutz as a potential starring vehicle for Nicole Kidman.

Kidman will produce the pic with producing partner Rick Schwartz, via the duo’s Blueprint Films banner, with an eye towards toplining. Alloy Entertainment, which recently exec-produced Warner’s “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,” is also producing “Party.”

Published by St. Martin’s Press, the novel spins a comic tale of a Los Angeles bachelorette party gone awry: Despite being recently jilted at the altar, a high school teacher must attend the sendoff of her uptight cousin — who happens to be marrying the teacher’s best guy friend. When the cousin betrays her fiancee’s trust with a drunken indiscretion, the teacher must decide if her loyalties lie with her cousin or her pal.

Lutz, whose other screenwriting credits include the 1999 Touchstone comedy, “Ten Things I Hate About You,” will adapt the novel.

Fox’s theatrical production exec Robbie Brenner will oversee “The Bachelorette Party’s” development for the studio.

Kidman will next be seen in Steven Shainberg’s “Fur,” playing famed photog Diane Arbus for indie outfit Ed Pressman Films.
