The last time Nicole Kidman was nominated for an Oscar was for her work in 2010’s “Rabbit Hole.”
Now, she’s reuniting with that film’s writer, scribe David Lindsay-Abaire, for the upcoming film “The Family Fang.”
“Fang” is based on the bestselling novel by Kevin Wilson about a pair of quirky performance artists who often used their children in the strange performances. Years later, their adult-aged children return home, only to be hoodwinked into taking part in one last act.
Kidman will star in and produce and produce the film, with Lindsay-Abaire adapting, reports Deadline.
Lindsay-Abaire was nominated for Tonys for his work on “Shrek the Musical” and his own play “Good People.” He also wrote Disney”s upcoming “Oz: The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi (the three “Spider-Man” films) and starring James Franco, Mila Kunis and Michelle Williams.
Kidman will soon be seen alongside Zac Efron in “The Paperboy,” and with Clive Owen in “Hemingway & Gellhorn.” Her last film was the box office non-starter “Trespass,” co-starring Nicolas Cage.
Kidman won the best actress Oscar for 2002’s “The Hours.” She was also nominated for 2001’s “Moulin Rouge!”
