According to JoBlo, Reese Witherspoon has signed on to produce and star in a film called Nice, which is an adaptation of Jen Sacks' darkly comedic novel. The book itself sounds great, and definitely the kind of material we need to see Witherspoon taking on again. Nice is said to center on a gal who is overly nice. She's so nice, in fact, that she can't even break up with her boyfriend. So, instead, she decides to kill the guy -- and when she gets away with the murder, she decides to keep doing it. Um, nice!

Witherspoon first showed she could really act in the dark comedy Election, which, if you haven't seen, I might need to kill you myself. But ever since she became a household name, the gal has pumped out dull romantic comedy after dull romantic comedy ... with a random drama thrown in to show you she's got the acting chops. Don't get me wrong, people love to see her locking lips with whatever actor is hot at the moment, but I personally have been itching to see her go back to her dark comedy roots and get a little daring with a role. What say you? Anyone read the book?

And for your viewing pleasure ...
