Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman Team to Adapt Novel ‘Truly Madly Guilty’

“Big Little Lies” co-stars Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman are teaming up on another popular adaptation. The duo acquired the rights to “Big Little Lies” author Liane Moriarty’s newest novel, “Truly Madly Guilty.”

Witherspoon will produce through her Pacific Standard banner along with partner Bruna Papandrea, and Kidman will produce through her shingle Blossom Films with partner Per Saari.

The novel explores the most fundamental relationships — marriage, parenthood, and friendship — and how easy it is to take those dynamics for granted. The story takes place over a weekend, among six adults and three kids.

No writer is attached and it is unknown if the two talents will also star in the project.

HBO’s “Big Little Lies” was adapted by David E. Kelley and directed by “Wild” helmer Jean-Marc Vallee. It stars Witherspoon, Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern, Zoe Kravitz, and Alexander Skarsgard. A release date hasn’t been annouced yet for the film.

Both Pacific Standard and Blossom Films are repped by CAA. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
