Nicole Kidman drops out of Woody's next flick

Potentially disappointing news from Variety:
Nicole Kidman has ankled her role in Woody Allen's latest, untitled project.
Pic, which co-stars Antonio Banderas, Anthony Hopkins, Josh Brolin, Naomi Watts and Freida Pinto, is set to start shooting in London in the summer.
There is no word yet on who Kidman's replacement will be.
Steve Tenenbaum, Gravier Prods.' Letty Aronson and Mediapro's Jaume Roures are producing, with Mediapro also financing.
Gravier and Mediapro previously teamed to make Allen's "Vicky Cristina Barcelona."
Allen's London-set project will be the first of a three-picture deal between Allen and Mediapro.
-This will all be ok if he gets someone better, which is a distinct possibility, but time will tell...thoughts?


  1. Bummer, 2010 looked like she would take the cinema by storm again like in 2001. Since we don't know what the character's like its hard to figure out who to cast. And Naomi Watts is about as close to Nicole in age and acting ability as I can think but she's already in there!

  2. Scarlet Jo again maybe

  3. kate winslet may. Argg I really wanted Nic for this!!

  4. I like the Kate Winslet idea too.

  5. Yes, not being a Kidman fan I'm glad she dropped.
