Nicole Kidman - Producers Moved Stoker Shoot To Accommodate Busy Mum Nicole Kidman

The producers of Nicole Kidman's new movie Stoker offered to relocate the shoot nearer to the actress' home in Tennessee, so she could be closer to her kids during filming.

The Oscar winner has become highly-selective of her movie roles since becoming a mum to daughters Sunday Rose and Faith, and she initially turned down the lead in Stoker because filming would have taken her away from them.

Director Chan-wook Park was so desperate to work with the 45 year old, he reworked the schedule and agreed to shoot the film in Tennessee to accommodate Kidman.

During an interview with U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America on Wednesday (27Feb13), she explained, "I said, 'I can't do the movie because my family obviously is my priority and I have two little girls, so I couldn't be away.' And they said, 'Well, if we came to Nashville do you think you could do it then?' And I said, 'Yes, I could, and it would suit the film,' so it was all serendipitous."

Kidman has become the second actress to force movie executive to relocate in recent months - Barbra Streisand only agreed to sign up for comedy Guilt Trip when producers agreed to shoot the film near her home in California.
