In a story from Variety, it looks like Fox Searchlight has picked up the screen rights to Jen Sacks' novel, Nice.

Currently, the plan is for the film to possibly star Reese Witherspoon.

Ben Queen has been picked to adapt the novel. Witherspoon will be producing the film.

The movie looks at a magazine writer who accidentally kills her boyfriend. When she disposes of the body, she realizes that killing her boyfriends is not that hard.

When the book was published in 1988, Warner Bros. was going to make it as a movie for Helen Hunt. The project never happened at that studio.
