Fox puts Panettiere on ‘Kiss List’

'Heroes' actress to star in Atomic's adaptation

Fox Atomic is acquiring the novel “Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List” and will develop it as a star vehicle for “Heroes” star Hayden Panettiere. Amy Andelson and Emily Meyer will write the script.

Alexandra Milchan, Lesley Vogel and Emily Gerson-Saines produce.

Novel is the latest by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan, whose past title, “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist,” has been turned into a Mandate Pictures and Sony comedy starring Michael Cera and Kat Dennings.

Published last year by Knopf, “Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List” takes place in Manhattan, where Naomi and her gay best friend Ely protect their soulmate friendship by creating a list of people deemed off limits for smooching. Their friendship is imperiled when Ely kisses Naomi’s boyfriend.

Panettiere is currently playing the title role in the Chris Columbus-directed Fox Atomic comedy “I Love You, Beth Cooper,” and she is also planning to star in “Daydream Nation,” which Vogel and Gerson-Saines will produce. In addition, Panettiere is recording an album for Hollywood Records, with the first single, “Wake Up Call,” set for release in the fall.
