Fox Searchlight will develop the darkly comedic novel Nice into a starring vehicle for Reese Witherspoon. Witherspoon would also produce the film, which centers on a magazine writer who accidentally offs her boyfriend. She gets rid of the body and comes to the realization that killing boyfriends is incredibly easier and much neater than breaking up with them.
The book was published in 1998 and the spec was originally set up at Warner Bros., who tried to lighten some of the book's black tone and nothing ever came to fruition. Fox Searchlight picked up the ball and plans to keep the book's edgy vibe intact.
