Sandra Bullock, via her Fortis Films, will produce a film version of Marina Palmer’s memoir Kiss & Tango with an eye to star for Fox 2000 Pictures.
The Hollywood Reporter says Bullock will produce with Denise Di Novi and her Di Novi Pictures.
Fox 2000 has acquired the rights to the book and is in final negotiations with screenwriter Nicole Perlman for an adaptation. The story centers on an American woman who goes to Argentina, falls in love with a man and a culture and rediscovers herself in the process.
Palmer was a New York advertising executive who quit her job and chased her dreams in Buenos Aires, where she has remained.
