I Don't Know How She Does It:Cold Mountain alumni Nicole Kidman and director Anthony Minghella are in talks to reunite for an adaptation of Allison Pearson's best selling, debut novel according to Empire online. Nicole is set to play Kate Reddy, an investment banker and mother of two. The story follows Kate's hectic life as she hurtles between appointments and juggles the dilemmas of working motherhood. It is a comic observation of a life on the brink that will not be without its drama.

The inception of Pearson's book somewhat echoes Bridget Jones Diary, with a weekly newspaper column, this time in London's Daily Telegraph, leading the way to a debut novel. It has been well received though, and looks a little more special than your average coffee table filler. Given that and the potential talent involved this is definitely shaping up to be a promising movie.
