AceShowbiz - Woody Allen's next film, "Untitled Woody Allen Project", is missing one of its cast members as Nicole Kidman has been reported to drop out of the drama project. It is unclear, however, what prompts the Academy Award-winning actress to exit the project.
41-year-old Kidman was originally set to star alongside Antonio Banderas, Anthony Hopkins, Josh Brolin, Naomi Watts and "Slumdog Millionaire" beauty Freida Pinto. There are no words shared on who will get a hold on her now-vacant role.
This yet-to-be-titled project by director/writer Woody Allen will be produced by Steve Tenenbaum, Gravier Prods.' Letty Aronson and Mediapro's Jaume Roures. Plot details are kept under tight wraps, but it is said to be an ensemble piece financed by Mediapro. The project is set to start its principal photography in London in the summer.
Earning her first Oscar through her portrayal of Virginia Woolf in "The Hours", Nicole Kidman has starred in numerous feature films. Her credits include "To Die For", "Batman Forever", "Moulin Rouge!", "Cold Mountain" and "Happy Feet". She was recently seen sharing screen with fellow Aussie Hugh Jackman in "Australia", and will next be seen in Rob Marshall's "Nine".
