Gwyneth Paltrow has joined Nicole Kidman in The Danish Girl, Tomas Alfredson’s Let The Right One In follow-up about the world’s first transsexual.

Kidman came on board back in September, signing on to play Einar Wegener, a man who became Lili Elbe after a sex-change operation in the 1930s. Paltrow, replacing the previously-cast Charlize Theon, will play Einar’s wife, Greta, a painter who first asks her husband to don a dress to stand in for one of her models, sending Einar down the path to irreversible change.

One thing’s for sure: this is going to be one heck of an interesting relationship, and a real chance for Paltrow and Kidman to get their teeth into two meaty roles. Steady…

Alfredson is directing from a script by Lucinda Coxon, who adapted the novel by David Ebershoff.
