The Paperboy is running into some delivery issues.
The drama, being directed by Precious helmer Lee Daniels, was to have starred Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron, Tobey Maguire and Sofia Vergara, with production scheduled to begin later this summer.
But Maguire dropped out of the project last week, throwing a wrench into the proceedings and causing the shoot to be pushed back. The delay then intruded on Vergaraâ€™s Modern Family shooting schedule, prompting her to drop out of Paperboy on Friday.
But the producers are acting quickly to buttress up the cast and are now in talks with Nicole Kidman to step into Vergaraâ€™s shoes. McConaughey and Efron are still in at this point.
Paperboy centers on a reporter and his brother who investigate the events surrounding a murder in order to exonerate a man on death row. Kidman, if her deal can be made, will play a woman with a dark side who writes letters to men on death row. She brings the case to the attention of the reporter, developing a relationship with him.
Kidman, repped by CAA and Media Talent Group, recently wrapped production on Hemingway and Gellhorn, HBO Filmsâ€™ romancer in which she plays war correspondent Martha Gellhorn to Clive Owenâ€™s Ernest Hemingway.
Millennium Entertainment has acquired U.S. rights to Joel Schumacher’s thriller “Trespass,” starring Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman, and plans a fall release.
Pic also stars Ben Mendelsohn, Cam Gigandet and Liana Liberato.
Karl Gajdusek wrote the screenplay for “Trespass” for the Nu Image/Millennium Films project, produced by Avi Lerner, Trevor Short, Danny Dimbort, Irwin Winkler, David Winkler, Boaz Davidson, Rene Besson, and Matthew F. Leonetti Jr.
Story centers on a man who has everything — a beautiful wife, a teenage daughter, a lavish estate — and is confronted with the reality of losing it all when he and his family become the victims of a vicious home invasion.
“Trespass” is the fourth collaboration between Cage and Nu Image/Millennium following “Drive Angry,” “The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans” and “The Wicker Man.”
Millennium, founded in April 2010 and led by Bill Lee, has been beefing up its release schedule recently with two other titles set for fall release — legal drama “Puncture,” starring Chris Evans and directed by Adam Kassen and Mark Kassen; and Elgin James’ “Little Birds,” starring Juno Temple, Kay Panabaker, with Kate Bosworth and Leslie Mann.
The company’s first theatrical release came in April with “Trust,” starring Clive Owen, Catherine Keener and Viola Davis.
Millennium operates a library of more than 1,000 titles including “Paris, Je t’aime,” “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans” and “Shadows and Lies.”
Today is our beloved Nicole’s 44th birthday, and we want to wish her a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Nicole, we hope you spend a perfect day with your loved ones and that they spoil you, because you deserve it!! And we hope that the year ahead brings you continued happiness and success in all that you choose to do. Thank you for sharing your talents with us and proving time and time again that you are an incomparable actress and woman.
It IS hard to imagine the next year could be any better for Nicole than this past year has been, but she has some very exciting sounding projects in the works and the future certainly looks bright!
Our Birthday Project to celebrate Nic’s special day is now complete, and all entries have been added for everyone to view! Thank you to everyone who sent something in – it’s so wonderful to be able to add so many fantastic messages.
I have a multi-tude of Gallery updates for you today! Yesterday I asked on our Twitter account what kind of updates you’d like to see here, and the replies you sent were new photos, old photos and content updates. Content updates are in the works, so today I have gallery updates of something old and something new(ish). These updates consist of new additions and HQ replacements for pictures we previously only had in MQ (medium quality/normal size) … a mismatch of both.
Starting with ‘new’ photos – fairly new, anyway – I’ve added a ton more photos from Nicole’s glorious return to the Oscar Nominees Luncheon this year, including a fantastic posed photo of Nic and her other Best Actress nominees, thanks to my friend Maria. Then, zooming back a whole 20 years, we have additional photos, most of which are HQ, from the 1991 Oscar Awards, which was the 2nd time Nic attended the event. This includes a couple of HQ photos of Nic & Tom talking to Jodie Foster at the after-party. More old photos come in the form of additions from 1992′s Strictly Ballroom premiere, and 1997′s The Peacemaker premiere. Most of the Strictly Ballroom additions are HQ. The The Peacemaker additions give us a better look at Nicole on the red carpet at that event, with some better full length shots of her dress.
I then decided to continue with our ‘Favourites’ theme, and have re-organised and updated our gallery albums from the 2002 Sundance Film Festival. These are some of my all-time favourite photos of Nic, as she looks so gorgeous and has such a beautiful smile on her face … and she’s also promoting one of my favourite films of hers – Birthday Girl. The photos have been sorted into correct albums for the press conference, screening and party for the film.
Finally, I’ve added screencaps from the recent video message Nicole posted for fans on her official website.

For today’s special treat to celebrate Nicole’s birthday weekend, I’ve added an additional 94 HQs from last years Rabbit Hole press conference! Nicole looks radiant. We are very lucky to be able to get so many HQs from this press conference, so I hope you enjoy these as much as I have!

I had planned to hold this update for tomorrow, so the goodies were a bit more spread out and so as not to eclipse those amazing Moulin Rouge blu-ray caps (see below, if you havent already!) … but I just couldn’t wait! I’ve added 500+ good quality screencaps from Just Go With It, in which Nicole plays the deliciously devilsome Devlin Adams. I have to admit that when I saw this in the cinema I didn’t like it, but upon watching it on DVD again now I enjoyed it a lot more, and Nicole was brilliant! I loved her over the top expressions, and Devlin’s back-handed compliments and quick put-downs. I would love to see more Devlin!
There are quite a lot of screencaps considering that Nicole had such a small role, but as I said, she had some great expressions … which always means lots of caps.
Rabbit Hole is released on DVD here in the UK on Monday, so you can look forward to screencaps from that here next week too!

As if our incredible new layout wasn’t enough, I have another very special treat for you today!! My friend Luciana has made us blu-ray quality screencaps from Moulin Rouge! These are HD, large screencaptures, and – as you can imagine – are absolutely stunning. To be able to have such good quality screencaps from this film in particular is such a treat, and I’m very excited that I’m able to share these with you! Really, the screencaps speak for themselves, so take your time to view them all because it is really worth it.
More film screencaps to come in the next few days and over the coming week…

… can describe this new layout!! I really can’t say much more than that about this incredible new layout to celebrate Moulin Rouge‘s 10th anniversary and Nicole’s upcoming birthday, courtesy of Mycah. I’m in awe of it, and hope you will be as mesmerised with it as I am.
The sidebar has been spruced up a bit for this new layout, including a little ‘We <3 Moulin Rouge' part, with some of my favourite quotes, lyrics, pieces of trivia and photos relating to the film. In true Moulin Rouge style, we are going all out to celebrate this movie!
Do you want more Moulin Rouge treats? If you do, you’re in the right place. You might want to check back tomorrow…
In the meantime, leave a comment with your thoughts on our new design!
I made this update a few days ago but completely forgot to post about it – oops! As part of our Favourites month, I’ve added some additional photos from the The Human Stain press conference. This is one of my favourite press conference looks from Nicole, and I love her curly hair and pretty top.
More photos coming later. Plus, ohhh, a
little big treat is coming over the weekend

Nic attended the CMT Music Awards in Nashville last night, in support of her husband who was nominated for 2 awards. Nicole showed off a more adventurous style, wearing a green, navy and brown dress from the Proenza Schouler Fall 2011 collection, which had a see-through skirt, with lilac Pierre Hardy shoes, and her red hair tied messily back with bangs. I love her hair, and I love this green colour on her! In fact, I just love seeing her in any colour again!
I’ve added over 150 photos from this event to our Gallery. I’m sure more will pop up soon too Scroll down this post for a short tidbit from the event, in which Nic & Keith mention their family…
