Nicole Kidman Gets Wicked in "Dark Materials"


Nicole Kidman


Nicole Kidman has given her approval to portray the villainous Mrs. Coulter in "His Dark Materials: The Golden Compass."

Keeps moving on to compile its cast, "The Golden Compass" has delightfully added one more star to join in and it's really a huge one as the star is none other than Nicole Kidman, Variety has reported.

Taking different approach this time, the Oscar-winning actress will stand on antagonistic side as the villainous and glamorous Mrs. Coulter opposite newcomer Dakota Blue Richards who has been billed to play the lead role of Lyra Belacqua.

Production is set to begin by September this year to meet a November 16, 2007 release date under New Line Cinema. Correcting the previous news about the project's director, Chris Weitz will be at helm based on his own scripts adapted from the first part of award-winning author Phillip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" trilogy.
