Kidman Tried To Pull Out Of Stepford Wives
OSCAR-winner NICOLE KIDMAN reportedly tried to pull out of starring in new movie THE STEPFORD WIVES, after co-star JOHN CUSACK backed out of the project.
According to American news site PAGE SIX, Kidman was reluctant to make the movie after Cusack dropped out because of a family emergency, to be replaced by MATTHEW BRODERICK - and she had to be persuaded by producer SCOTT RUDIN to stay on board.
A source tells Page Six, "She was intrigued about working with John Cusack. She didn't want to play against Matthew Broderick."
The film - which also stars BETTE MIDLER, GLENN CLOSE and CHRISTOPHER WALKEN - is due for release in the summer (04), but Page Six sources claim producers recently shot an extra eight weeks of footage and are battling to put the film together after a disappointing first trailer.25/02/2004 09:21
