Kidman Drops Woody Allen Film
Nicole abandons his 2010 outing

13 May 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara

Nicole Kidman has dropped out of Woody Allen's next, untitled film. It was announced in March that she was set to star in the film, but she has now withdrawn for as-yet unspecified reasons.

The rest of the cast includes Antonio Banderas, Anthony Hopkins, Josh Brolin, Naomi Watts and Freida Pinto, and given that everyone seems to want to work with Woody Allen, we don't expect him to be lacking a leading lady for very long. Only problem is that, with Naomi Watts already on the cast list, the most obvious candidate to replace Kidman's already accounted for.

The film's due to start shooting in London this summer, Allen's return to our shores after making Vicky Cristina Barcelona in, er, Barcelona, and Whatever Works in New York. We'll bring you news of Kidman's replacement as soon as we have it.

Filming
Anyone know what this is all about. They were filming yesterday around Notting Hill and I got to meet Josh Brolin. Incidentally, the first thing that came to my head was "Goonies never say die". I saw Freida and Woody too but about 3 weeks ago I saw Woody, Watts and Bandaras on the same street. Got some shoddy camera phone pics but pap pics are online for those interested. More
