Kidman drops project due to impending spawn
Posted 01.08.08 by reelz
One day after confirming the rumors that she is indeed with child, Nicole Kidman has dropped out of her next project, the film adaptation of Bernhard Schlink's The Reader, in which she was to star opposite Ralph Fiennes. The story, which was an Oprah's book club pick years back, is about a German teenager who has an affair with a somewhat mysterious older woman in post-WWII Germany.
The movie had already started shooting on location in Germany when Kidman cancelled due to her pregnancy, but she had yet to get in front of the camera. No word yet on whom her replacement will be.
All we'll say is there is just about nothing that would get between us and a love scene with Ralph Fiennes--baby be damned. Then again, from what we recall of the book, her love scenes wouldn't be with him, but the actor who played the younger version of his character. So maybe it isn't that big of a sacrifice after all.
