Exciting news! Nicole has a new project according to Variety!

Nicole Kidman will star in the Los Angeles crime thriller “Destroyer” from director Karyn Kusama.

She will portray an LAPD detective who, as a young cop, was placed undercover with a cult-like gang in the California desert. When the leader of that gang re-emerges many years later, she must work her way back through the remaining members and into her own history with them to finally reckon with the demons that destroyed her past.

Casting is currently underway on the film. Kusama will direct from an original screenplay by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi (“Ride Along”).

30West will fully finance the film. “La La Land” producer Fred Berger of Automatik is producing alongside Hay and Manfredi, who also wrote and produced Kusama’s “The Invitation.”

Rocket Science is handling international sales and helped arrange the financing, while ICM Partners and CAA are representing the North American rights to the film.

“Phil and Matt have written one of the most compelling screenplays I’ve ever read, Nicole is at the top of her game — doing tremendously exciting work — and Karyn is one of the most assured voices working today,” Berger said. “It’s a powerful combination, sure to produce an iconic character, and I feel lucky to be in their company.”

Kidman starred in HBO’s hit limited series “Big Little Lies,” which just earned her an Emmy Award. Her recent film credits include Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled” for Focus Features and Yorgos Lanthimos’ “Killing of a Sacred Deer” for A24. Kidman has been nominated for four Academy Awards, winning for her performance in Stephen Daldry’s “The Hours.”

Kidman is represented by CAA and Media Talent Group, Kusama by ICM Partners, and Hay and Manfredi by UTA.
