Kidman, Fox married to 'Millionaire'

Empty

Nicole Kidman is going to the altar with 20th Century Fox for a remake of "How to Marry a Millionaire."

The actress will produce the project through her Fox-based Blossom Films shingle as a potential starring vehicle.

Sacha Gervasi, who wrote Steven Spielberg's "The Terminal," has been tapped to 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, vaulted 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.

Fox's Lisa Ellzey is overseeing the project for the studio, while Per Saari is shepherding for Blossom Films.

Kidman's banner has several projects in development at Fox, including an untitled spy project penned by Simon Kinberg and "The Bachelorette Party," based on Karen McCullah Lutz's novel.

The actress, who won an Academy Award for portraying Virginia Woolf in "The Hours," next stars in Warner Bros. Pictures' "The Invasion" and New Line Cinema's "The Golden Compass."

She is repped by CAA and attorney Alan Wertheimer.

Gervasi, who also penned a draft of the big-screen adaptation of "Dallas" for Regency Enterprises, is repped by CAA and attorney Mike Adler.
