On a quiet summer Friday, the actress Nicole Kidman announced a new project, Nine Perfect Strangers, based on Liane Moriarty’s forthcoming novel. The next day, she filmed scenes for the second season of Big Little Lies, this one with Meryl Streep sharing the billing. And then, the following day—a Sunday, a day of rest—Nicole Kidman revealed that she would also be producing an adaptation of Janice Y.K. Lee’s novel The Expatriates, which was picked up by Amazon*.* (Last month, her production company announced a first-look deal with the streaming platform.) Oh, and she’ll tentatively be starring in both of them.

In the upcoming season of Big Little Lies, which will expand beyond the scope of Moriarty’s source novel, Streep plays Kidman’s mother-in-law, Mary-Louise (which is, in fact, Streep’s birth name; Meryl is a nickname)—making her the mother of Celeste Wright’s (spoiler alert) late husband, Perry. The role was actually devised by Moriarty herself when the possibility of a second season of the then limited series arose; she conceptualized the character with Streep in mind. (“We didn’t think we’d get her,” Kidman admitted in an interview shortly after the announcement.)

So between the entire Big Little Lies saga and Nine Perfect Strangers, Moriarty and Kidman, fellow Aussies, have cultivated a strong partnership. And with The Expatriates, the Janice Y.K. Lee adaptation, Kidman will again turn to a novel for inspiration in developing a project. The Expatriates, which was first released in 2016, centers on a trio of women navigating motherhood and social spheres in contemporary Hong Kong—a New York Times review at the time explained that the novel explores “the nuance and clash of culture, class, race and sex.”

Kidman began her production company, Blossom Entertainment, nearly a decade ago, developing Rabbit Hole, a film based on the Pulitzer Prize–winning play of the same title, under its auspices. Since then, she has made an effort to create the kinds of roles she wants to play and wants to put out in the world—including those in Big Little Lies, which features an ensemble cast comprising almost exclusively women.

“The Expatriates is just the beginning of our shared goal in making delicious stories with something meaningful to say about the world,” Kidman said in a statement announcing the Amazon collaboration. Just the beginning! Tomorrow is Monday. Nicole Kidman never rests.

According to the Hollywood Reporter it looks like there could be a new role on the horizon for Nicole!

Charlize Theron is attached to star as Megyn Kelly in the Annapurna movie from Jay Roach.

Nicole Kidman is in talks to play former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson in Annapurna’s Roger Ailes movie, joining Charlize Theron who is attached to star as Megyn Kelly.

The studio, which is already making a Dick Cheney biopic with helmer Adam McKay, is financing and producing the project that was written by The Big Short scribe Charles Randolph and will be directed by Jay Roach.

Theron will produce the feature along with Beth Kono and AJ Dix via their Denver & Delilah banner. Roach, Randolph and Margaret Riley are also producing.

Ailes ran Fox News and helped launch the careers of Kelly, Carlson and Sean Hannity with his powerful channel. He also was a prominent figure in Republican circles that helped elect presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George Bush. Ailes was forced to resign in 2016 when a host of accusations of sexual misconduct surfaced, with Carlson’s and Kelly’s the most high-profile, and which contributed to his exit from the network.

The untitled project is described as an ensemble pic, with Ailes and others who were involved at Fox News during his reign said to be major players in the piece. Characters included are likely to be Carlson, former anchor Greta Van Susteren, media mogul Rupert Murdoch and fired host Bill O’Reilly.

Kidman will soon be seen in another Annapurna project — Karyn Kusama’s Destroyer. She is also set for Warner Bros.’ Aquaman, The Goldfinch adaptation and Focus Feature’s Boy Erased. She is repped by CAA, Australia’s Shanahan, Media Talent Group and Jackoway Austen.

Nicole Kidman’s very first San Diego Comic-Con has been pretty “amazing.”

The Oscar-winning actress stars as Queen Atlanna in the upcoming film Aquaman, starring Jason Momoa as the titular superhero. ET’s Kevin Frazier caught up with Kidman, 51, during the Warner Bros. and DC press line on Saturday, where she shared the flattering way that the movie’s director, James Wan, convinced her to join the cast.

“It’s so funny because James said to me, ‘I so want you to do this,'” Kidman told ET. “And he said, ‘I’ll prove to you that I’ve always wanted you to do this. In all of my renderings, I drew you. So what’re you going to say?'”

Wan used Kidman’s face in the film’s concept art of the Atlantean matriarch because he had wanted her for the role.

Naturally, the Australian-born star couldn’t help but jump at the chance to play a powerful mermaid. Kidman, however, is no stranger to superhero films, having starred in 1995’s Batman Forever as Dr. Chase Meridian. During the Hall H panel earlier in the day at Comic-Con, where a new Aquaman trailer was revealed, she also playfully joked about her stunts in the movie.

“My opening shot in the film is being washed up on a rock, and I got to lie there with massive waves washing over me,” she shared. “And I kept thinking, ‘Come on, James! Give it to me! The bigger the better! This is why I’m doing this movie!’”

Kidman, meanwhile, has been enjoying her time at the convention, telling ET that her experience has been “amazing,” and adding, “It’s my first one.” Her time at Comic-Con will be short, though, as she has to get back to the set of Big Little Lies.

“I have to be at work tomorrow. I have to do rehearsal and then I have to be back on the set of Big Little Lies on Monday,” she explained. “And being the professional that I am, I [have] to leave this afternoon so that I can prep.”

The second season of the hit HBO series also includes Meryl Streep, whom Kidman called an “empress.”

“I bow down. She’s the empress,” Kidman said with a laugh. “We go out and we love eating Italian food in Monterey,” she added.

Meanwhile, ET caught up with Kidman’s Aquaman co-star Amber Heard earlier this year, when she gushed about working opposite “beautiful and soulful” Kidman. Watch the video to hear more.

Aquaman arrives in theaters on Dec. 21.

From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be…a king.

“Boy Erased” tells the story of Jared (Hedges), the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town, who is outed to his parents (Kidman and Crowe) at age 19. Jared is faced with an ultimatum: attend a conversion therapy program – or be permanently exiled and shunned by his family, friends, and faith. Boy Erased is the true story of one young man’s struggle to find himself while being forced to question every aspect of his identity.
