Nicole Kidman is producing and is considering starring in her Blossom Partner’s remake of Love and Pain and the Whole Damn Thing, originally released in 1973 and directed by Alan Pakula. The premise will remain the bond between two tourists who cross paths, then flirt, then develop a unique bond. Scandal!
Alvin Sargent has handled screenwriting for the remake, and will provide a more heavy role for her after starring with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston in Just Go with It and with Nicholas Cage in the thriller Trespass.
The seed for this remake may have been planted by Kidman’s husband, country rock star Keith Urban, who dedicated his 2006 album, Love, Pain & The Whole Crazy Thing to Kidman. Inspiration strikes in strange ways sometimes.
No details regarding casting nor release have been disclosed, but this is just the type of wholesome film that will make you feel good any time, so just be happy it’s going to be in your life. (Deal Central)
