GOTTA HAVE FAITH Hill may join Kidman in ''Stepford'' remake

How does Faith Hill manage her supermom act -- a busy schedule as a country superstar, a high-profile marriage to the equally big star Tim McGraw, raising two little girls, and maintaining her model-quality good looks? Maybe she's not human. Which is why she's an apt choice to costar in ''The Stepford Wives,'' the remake of the 1975 thriller about a suburb full of houswives who are too perfect to be real. According to Variety, she's in talks to join Nicole Kidman and the rest of the cast of the movie, which starts shooting next month.

Hill has made guest appearances on such TV series as ''Touched by an Angel'' and ''Promised Land,'' but ''Stepford'' would mark her big-screen debut. The ''In & Out'' team of director Frank Oz and screenwriter Paul Rudnick is behind the black-comic take on the sci-fi chiller. Hill would be joining Kidman, John Cusack, Joan Cusack, Glenn Close, Christopher Walken, and ''The Producers''' Roger Bart. Still, she's not abandoning music; in fact, her next single, due April 28, is called, ''You're Still Here.''
