Fox Atomic Trying to 'Kiss' Hayden Panettiere

Fox Atomic has acquired "Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List" as a possible starring vehicle for Hayden Panettiere.

The project focuses on the latest cumbersomely titled novel by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan, the duo behind "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist" (soon to be a Sony Pictures release).

Naomi (Panettiere, if Fox Atomic has its way) and her gay best friend Ely make a list of people they can't kiss, but then when Ely kisses Naomi's boyfriend (presumably somebody on the list), bad things happen to their friendship.

According to Variety, Amy Andelson and Emily Meyer will adapt the book for the big screen.

Fox Atomic and Panettiere are already working together on "I Love You, Beth Cooper."

The "Heroes" cheerleader has also been attached to "Daydream Nation," while working on an album for Hollywood Records.
