Nicole Kidman has been attached to star in DANNY BOY, a story about a hitwoman who kills a drug boss and wins the freedom of a young drug runner, and finds herself pulled into a spiraling web of violence as she attempts to protect the boy. I don’t have the details on who she will be playing, but it certainly doesn’t sound like there are going to be many roles for women in this one, so my money is on her playing the hitwoman. If that is the case, than this project definitely has my attention as I would like to see Kidman play against type.
The project is being produced by Paul Schiff Productions with Paul Schiff producing and Babak Nafaji is in talks to direct.
Kidman will be seen in the upcoming Paddington Bear movie, “Paddington” and will be playing Grace Kelley in “Grace of Monaco.” She was last in “The Railway Man” and “Stoker.”
