Nicole Kidman Scraps Sex Change Movie
Posted by Adam
NICOLE Kidman has been forced to shut down her movie.
The actress was due to make a film about the world’s first man to have a sex change, but it has been shelved, reports the Daily Mail.
The Danish Girl, a planned $20 million biopic based on the bestselling book about artist Lili Elbe, who was born a man, Einar Wegener, should have started shooting in Germany last month.
Nicole, 44, was due to star as Lili/Einar, but first director Lasse Hallström and then costar Rachel Weisz pulled out of the movie.
Nicole’s production company Blossom Films was behind the project, but casting and financial problems have caused the film to stall.
“Nicole initially approached Gwyneth Paltrow to play the artist’s wife and fellow artist Gerda Gottlieb, but she was too busy. Charlize Theron then took the role but had to pull out because of scheduling conflicts,” a source said.
“Rachel Weisz signed up last year but now she’s pulled out and the whole production has been thrown into disarray.
“Nicole is still determined to make this film, so she’s gone back to the drawing board.”
