Nicole was spotted filming her newest film “The Family Fang” with co-star Jason Bateman in New York City earlier this month. Pictures have been updated to the gallery so be sure to check them out.

“You had an accident. It was a bad accident, you had injuries. You have problems remembering things. Everything.”

Colin Firth aptly sums up the intriguing premise of his new thriller Before I Go to Sleep. The film sees the Oscar-winning actor team up with Nicole Kidman who plays Christine Lucas, a forty-something amnesiac who wakes up every morning with no memory of the previous twenty years.

In this world exclusive clip of the upcoming film – which also stars Mark Strong and Anne-Marie Duff – Christine is seen being comforted by her husband Ben (played by Firth). In the absence of any other family members, she has no choice but to trust him. But is Ben all he seems…?



Screen Invasion brought us an exclusive featurette highlighting the making of the truly effecting film, “The Railway Man” starring Nicole and Colin Firth.

INDIEWIRE.COM – German filmmaker Werner Herzog is on the brain today. The 71-year-old filmmaker is about to celebrate the release of the superb Shout Factory boxset “Herzog: The Collection” and he’s got a new film waiting in the wings. Titled “Queen Of The Desert,” the film features the filmmaker’s most starry cast to date: Nicole Kidman, James Franco, Robert Pattinson, “Homeland” star Damian Lewis and many more. The film chronicles the events of Gertrude Bell’s life, a British explorer, traveler, archaeologist and political officer. And apparently it’s done and in the can.

Co-producer Nick N. Raslan tweeted the first photo of the movie over the weekend, said the movie was done and described it as a “true epic” (you can see the tweets below). Surely if the picture is done that means we can absolutely expect it at one of the fall film festivals this September, at either TIFF, Telluride, Venice or NYFF. Producer Cassian Elwes has also said on Twitter he hopes to release the film in the fall, so that certainly means a fall film festival debut first and then hopefully after a strong reception, a distributor who’s willing to release it this year.

Why this year and not next as many indies often do? Well, according to Werner Herzog itself, it’s potentially because Nicole Kidman may have some awards-season fire in it. Playlist contributor James Rocchi spoke to Herzog last week and during a conversation about the acting powers of Klaus Kinski and Nicolas Cage, Herzog veered off to discuss how impressed he was with Kidman. “I think in all my films, the actors are at their best—and it includes Nicolas Cage in ‘Bad Lieutenant.’ I believe he is better than even in the part that won him an Academy Award,” Herzog said of Cage’s Best Actor win for “Leaving Las Vegas.”

“Now, Nicole Kidman,” Herzog said of her lead performance in “Queen Of The Desert.” “Wait for that one. Wait for it. I make an ominous prediction: How good she is.”

Herzog wasn’t shy about giving self-props to the environment he creates to assist the actor in giving their best performance possible. “I really take care of actors. I’m not explaining too much, but they feel safe, they feel guided, they feel a kind of dynamic that I can create. They know I can get the best of the best out of them. That’s what I do. That’s what I’m paid for.”

Herzog’s actors have had similar praise for the filmmaker. Robert Pattinson recently told Little White Lies magazine that Herzog has “insane confidence.”

“It’s insane because he wrote the script as well and it’s one of the most difficult scripts I’ve ever read,” he said. “Werner’s great. He’s exactly what you’d expect. He’s got so many amazing stories. He’s got insane confidence as well. I think that’s where all his creativity comes from. He’s got 100% belief in himself.”

Earlier this year Kidman spoke about working with the filmmaker and said that protective environment is unique. “I call it Werner World,” she said of being directed by him. “Werner World is just a different realm. It’s glorious. I said to him, ‘Werner, I feel like I’ve been in a dream with you for the past two-and-a-half months, and now I’ve got my feet back on earth.’ I’m at a place where I’m so interested in exploring things and going places that I haven’t been. I want my life to be full, so that means all of us—my family—up and moving to Morocco and doing this so we can have the experience.”

Certainly “Queen Of The Desert” is one of the most anticipated films for what’s left of 2014. You’ll certainly see it this fall at one (or two) of the fall film festivals, it’s really just a matter of which one lands the picture for the premiere. More from our lengthy Werner Herzog interview next week.

DAILYMAIL.CO.UK – Nicole Kidman has revealed that she is in discussions to return to the London stage, scene of one of her greatest triumphs, to star in a classic play about an unhappily married woman in love with a younger man.

The Oscar-winning actress explained that she is involved in ‘complex negotiations’ that may see her appearing in two plays ‘one after the other’.

She told me: ‘I don’t know how it’s going to work yet, but yes, that’s the idea. Two in a row.’

The production that appears to be on the faster track is Turgenev’s A Month In The Country, which is being adapted by Patrick Marber.

Ian Rickson, former artistic chief of the Royal Court, will direct the play, hopefully sometime in 2015.

Nicole did not discuss the dramas, but stressed that she was serious about treading the boards 16 years after she wowed London when she was directed by Sam Mendes at the Donmar Warehouse in David Hare’s The Blue Room.

Charles Spencer, the Daily Telegraph’s reviewer, was so excited he famously dubbed the play ‘theatrical Viagra’.

‘I see so many plays in London, Sydney and New York, and I’m mindful that it’s been a long time, but life and other work have conspired to keep me away,’ said Nicole.

‘But I’m determined to make at least one of the proposals work. Who knows? Both of the proposals might come together.’

A couple of years ago there was chatter about her going to New York to be in Terence Rattigan’s After The Dance, but that never panned out.

‘Everything is being done to make the plays happen,’ Nicole insisted. ‘There’s commitment from me and everyone involved.’

She said husband Keith Urban and their two youngest children, Faith Margaret and Sunday Rose, would move to London with her once dates had been settled. Nicole will have further discussions with Rickson and producer Sonia Friedman when she’s in town in October to film Michael Grandage’s debut feature Genius, in which she will appear with Colin Firth and Jude Law.

In A Month In The Country, Nicole would play Natalya, mercurial wife of a wealthy Russian estate owner. Bored, she falls in love with her son’s young tutor — but her ward is also in love with the man.

Nicole was a big admirer of Rickson’s production of The Seagull, which ran at the Royal Court and on Broadway with Carey Mulligan and Kristin Scott Thomas.

She joked that it was my fault she was planning a return to the stage. ‘I always feel guilty that I haven’t been back, so I said to myself: “I can now look Baz in the eye and tell him ‘Yes’ for a change!”?’

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.
