Nicole Kidman and producing partner Per Saari are developing a remake of the 1973 dramedy "Love and Pain and the Whole Damn Thing" under their Blossom Films shingle. The original film, directed by Alan J. Pakula, centers on two tourists who fall in love in Spain, despite their reservations about long-term possibilities. The project will be based on the Alvin Sargent's original screenplay for the 1973 film, and the female lead will be written for Kidman. Kidman and Saari are also supported by producing partners Laura Ziskin and Susan Landau. The film clearly means something personal to Kidman as her husband Keith Urban's 2006 album was entitled Love, Pain, and the Whole Crazy Thing, in a play on words of the film title; the album was dedicated to Kidman.
