Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth Team Up for ‘Before I Go to Sleep’

After filming the upcoming WWII drama, The Railway Man together, The Hollywood Reporter informed us that Nicole Kidman was looking to re-team with her on-screen husband Colin Firth. Of course, who wouldn’t? And earlier this the fall, Kidman confirmed her next project, the psychological drama Before I Go to Sleep, the Rowan Joffe-helmed drama alongside Mark Strong. But now it looks like Nicole’s desire paid off! Firth is now slated to join the picture as her husband once again.

Based on the debut novel by British writer S.J. Watson and penned by Joffe, Before I Go to Sleep tells the story of a woman with amnesia who wakes every day with no knowledge of who she is but tries to reconstruct her memories from a journal she has been keeping. 50 First Dates? Nope! Apparently things get dark as terrifying new truths emerge and she is forced to question everyone around her. Kidman and Firth first hand at marriage is currently in post-production and is set to debut later this year. According to Variety, Joffe’s film will shoot in various locations throughout London beginning later this month.

Nicole Kidman channels ‘My Fair Lady’ for day at the races

Nicole Kidman is currently portraying Grace Kelly in her new film, but the Australian actress channelled another Hollywood star for her appearance at the Melbourne Derby this weekend – Audrey Hepburn’s character Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady.
The 45-year-old star looked the picture of elegance in a lace L’Wren Scott dress with black and white striped ribbon detailing and a matching wide-brimmed hat by Stephen Jones

My Fair Lady is one of my favourite movies,” she said. “We decided to do something that was fun and a bit different. I’m doing a film about Grace Kelly at the moment, so it’s nice to do it (get dressed up) in real life too,” she said.
This was Nicole’s first visit to the Melbourne Derby. “I love the races, being Australian, the Melbourne Cup has always been something that I have bet on, as a kid I used to go to the races, but I had never been here,” she told the press.
The Cold Mountain star created a buzz when she entered the exclusive Birdcage enclosure, where she spent three hours in the Swisse marquee, mingling and placing a few bets, before jetting back to the set of Grace of Monaco in France.

Kidman and Urban join anti-coal movement

It appears Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban have joined the anti-coal mining movement in NSW.

The celebrity couple have hung a placard on the gates of their multi-million-dollar Southern Highlands home in protest against coal seam gas mining, according to News Ltd.

The Sunday Telegraph says the sign was bought from a protest stall set up at the Moss Vale Farmers Market last month.

A photo in the newspaper shows the sign on the black gates at the front of the couple’s property in Sutton Forest.

The sign says “No coal or Coal Seam Gas”.

Local landholders are campaigning against plans to expand coal and gas mining operations in the area.

Southern Highlands Coal Action Group convener Peter Martin has told the newspaper that Kidman and Urban had spoken about their concerns regarding the proposed mining activity in the area at the stall last month.
“We sold them the sign for $20 when they visited the Moss Vale Farmers Market one Saturday morning on their last visit here,” he said.

Nicole Kidman Eyeing Return To Broadway

Actress Nicole Kidman is in talks to return to Broadway for the first time in 14 years.

The Hours star is interested in leading the cast of Terence Rattigan’s play After The Dance – about a novelist who leaves his wife for a younger woman – when it opens on the New York stage next year (13).

Kidman is reportedly in negotiations to portray wife Joan Scott-Fowler, who struggles to tell her husband David how much she cares for him as their marriage crumbles, according to Britain’s Daily Mail.

British actress Nancy Carroll previously played the role opposite War Horse star Benedict Cumberbatch in a critically-acclaimed 2010 production in London’s West End.

Kidman made her Broadway debut in director Sam Mendes’ 1998 production of The Blue Room.

Nicole Kidman plays Ernest Hemingway muse in HBO biopic

Nicole Kidman won an Oscar for playing a famous writer with a chaotic private life. Now she’s found another such character.

In “Hemingway & Gellhorn,” an HBO movie coming this spring, the Australian-born actress plays Martha Gellhorn, the pioneering war correspondent who became the muse and third wife of Ernest Hemingway. For Kidman, there were some parallels with her portrayal of Virginia Woolf in the Academy Award-winning feature “The Hours.”

“It was kind of a necessity in the journey of my career to find these women and tell their stories,” Kidman, 44, told reporters Friday morning at the TV press tour in Pasadena. “I love these women that defy the odds and burn bright.”

Gellhorn was a globe-trotting war correspondent at a time when such jobs were almost exclusively the province of men. “She didn’t believe in being objective as a journalist; she believed in having an opinion,” Kidman said.

Hemingway, who is played by British actor Clive Owen, is at first attracted to Gellhorn’s independence but eventually has trouble dealing with her strong will. Kidman sees an irony given Hemingway’s evident desire to find a woman who could be his equal.

“When he finally finds it, he doesn’t know what to do with it,” she said.

According to the paper Frencher, 23, has already spoken to Isabella’s father Tom Cruise about proposing.

A source told the paper: “Tom and Nicole think Eddie is a great kid, and couldn’t be happier. The fact that he is a Scientologist is obviously a boon, too – they’ll be Scientology royalty.

“Eddie and Bella have been dating for some time but have deliberately kept their romance under wraps. The couple decided to go public at (her brother) Connor’s birthday party recently because Eddie and Bella have discussed marriage.”

The source added: “They won’t be getting married anytime soon but they are getting pretty serious very quickly.”
