Nicole Kidman just missed her second Academy Award after she was nominated for her performance in Rabbit Hole, but this project sounds like it could result in another shot at an Oscar!
The actress has signed on to play the matriarch in The Family Fang. The adaptation from the novel of the same name is about performance artists who routinely forced their children into a variety of bizarre public stunts. When the scarred children return home as adults to deal with a family crisis, their parents take advantage of them for one last daring public performance.
Kidman is producing and reteaming with the screenwriter who wrote her role in Rabbit Hole, so this could very well be a flick to pay attention to.
