Nicole Kidman Says Goodbye to "The Lady from Shanghai"



Nicole Kidman has decided to give up her role in Wong Kar-wai's upcoming film project of "The Lady from Shanghai."

"The Lady from Shanghai" has lost one big star from its cast. Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman reportedly told the press at Rome Film Festival that she shockingly has departed the project, a Studio Canal production set to be directed by Hong Kong-based filmmaker Wong Kar-wai.

This unexpected decision of the beauty can be understood since the star apparently intends to spend more time with her husband, Keith Urban, as he undergoes treatments to get rid of his alcoholism. No words yet whether she will also drop her other future projects like "The Golden Compass" and "Untitled Baz Luhrmann Project", but let's not hope so.

With Kidman's departure, "Shanghai" therefore only features Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz in its cast lineup so far. Set in the 1930's, it concerns a mysterious woman who claims that she came from Shanghai and has a dangerous affair with a spy.
