Nicole is now in Edinburgh to start shooting a new movie, The Railway Man, and today attended a photocall in the Scottish city to mark the start of filming. To start with, I have posted (and back-dated) the original news release reporting Nicole’s involvement in this movie here – as you can see from the date she was first announced to be starring in the movie in early March. The photocall today was held at the Creative Scotland Offices in Edinburgh, and was attended by Nic, Colin Firth, Stellan SkarsgĂĄrd, Jeremy Irvine and director Jonathan Teplitzky. Nic looked smart in a black jumper and blazer, jeans, and black boots … almost matching her co-star Colin Firth!

Photos from the event can be seen in our Gallery, and read on further down this post for some interesting reports on today’s event and the story behind the film, including several quotes from Nic.

Stellan Skarsgard and Hiroyuki Sanada have joined the cast of “The Railway Man,” starring Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman and Jeremy Irvine, which starts shooting April 30 in Scotland.

Directed by Jonathan Teplitzy from a script by Frank Cottrell Boyce and Andy Paterson, the movie is based on the true story of Eric Lomax, a British officer captured and tortured by the Japanese in WW2.

Decades later, Lomax was persuaded by his wife to seek out and confront one of his captors.

Nic attended the Nashville Film Festival last weekend, speaking on the Evolution of Women Behind the Camera panel with Carrie Preston, Beth Grant and Famke Janssen. Unfortunately the only coverage I’ve come across so far are a few photos and the quote below, so for now, here you go:

“Find good mentors. Don’t care what people think… But you must try stuff. Keep going and don’t give up.”
- Nicole Kidman

Keith Urban, Grand Ole Opry Induction: How Wife Nicole Kept Invite a Secret

As Keith Urban prepares to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry tomorrow night (April 21), it’s odd to think that just two weeks ago he had no idea this would be happening. The Aussie received the “shocking” invitation during the April 10 All for the Hall benefit concert in Nashville.

Keeping the secret of the Opry invitation from Keith was a tough one, especially when it came to making sure he didn’t schedule anything on his intended induction day. His wife, Nicole Kidman, had a plan, though. She penciled in a friend’s birthday party on their calendar.

“That’s all I knew, that it was a friend of my wife’s birthday written on the schedule,” Keith says, “which apparently is totally fictitious, but I didn’t question it. I was just gonna go.”

To put things into perspective, Keith recalls the first time he stepped on that legendary stage, and how he got to meet one of his musical heroes backstage. “I was such a Ricky Skaggs fan,” Keith recalls. “I remember that he was so approachable, and I was like ‘I can’t believe I’m talking to Ricky Skaggs.’ But that’s what it was like behind the scenes at the Opry — everyone was approachable and so laid back.”

WITH its quiet beaches and well-manicured fairways, North Berwick seems a universe away from the glamour of Holywood.

But excitement is building in the picturesque East Lothian town ahead of the arrival of two of cinema’s biggest names.

Oscar winners Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman will jet in next month to film scenes for The Railway Man – the story of Edinburgh-born prisoner of war Eric Lomax.

It is the latest A-list movie to be shot in Scotland following Brad Pitt’s zombie film World War Z, Scarlett Johansson’s sci-fi horror Under The Skin, and Skyfall, the new James Bond instalment.

It is understood crews will be filming in North Berwick from May 13-18, and that much of the shoot will take place in Tantallon Terrace. Crews are also expected to head to Port Seton.

John Skillen, 49, manager at the town’s Sweet News newsagent, said: “It will certainly raise the profile of the town. This is a tourism place and a holiday resort so the boost will be good.”

Mere days after our exciting first still from The Paperboy, and we’ve been treated to more! Six new stills of Nicole as Charlotte have found their way online today, and these new shots give us more of a glimpse into the character and action of the movie. This film looks crazy-good, it’s been too long since Nicole did something completely out there like this! These stills are brilliant…

To go alongside their new May issue cover, the W magazine website have posted their latest Screen Test interview with Nicole. Unfortunately I can’t embed it, but you can watch it through the link below…

Nicole Kidman opens up to Lynn Hirschberg about wanting to live “a well-examined life,” her protective husband, and “being the only person who has gotten to shave Robert Downey Jr. naked.”

Big thanks today goes to our forum member ‘thehours_fan’ for posting the very first still of Nicole in The Paperboy! Nicole plays Charlotte Bless in the film, a character described as a middle aged postal worker who gets her kicks from corresponding with death row inmates. The air around her is “alive with sex”, one character description read. Nicole looks suitably trashy in this first still, and makes me even more intrigued and excited to see her in this role!

As well as the new still, I’ve taken time to catch up the Gallery with a few other missing Paperboy photos. They did a few reshoots in January of this year, and Nic was snapped on set again in full hair and make-up. The first poster for the movie was released in late December, and a new one a few weeks later in January – as you’ll see in our Gallery, they are both very artistic and intense looking!

What do you think of our first official look at Nic in this movie? Do you think this will be a great role for her?

A couple of weeks ago our forum received a rather long overdue new look! It is now adorned with a vivid black and pink new theme, featuring several colour co-ordinated photos of our Nic. Hop on over to take a peek…

New look at the Forum

And speaking of our forum, I have some information regarding new registrations there. Unfortunately the forum is being completely over-run by spam registrations making it impossible for me to keep up with approving new members the way it is set up now. So I’ve decided to close registrations and ask those who want to become a member of the forum to fill in this form with your email address and the username you would like to use at the forum. I will then register an account for you and email you back with your password once it is set up. Filling in the form this way will take you no more time than it would to fill in the registration page on the forum, and will probably get you activated to post more quickly. Those who have registered for the forum but have NOT been activated yet, please fill in this form too and I will make sure your account is set up.

I’m terribly sorry about this – registering at a forum should be simple, easy, and open to everyone, but unfortunately I cannot find a way to stop the spam we are getting at the moment. We LOVE meeting new members at the forum though, and are eagerly awaiting some fresh new members to chat with!! So please consider registering with us this new way – we look forward to meeting you :)

Wow, our amazing forum member barbara just posted this extremely rare video for us on our forum, and I had to share it with you here! She’s found a promotional video Nicole and Tom Cruise did in the late 90′s to support Sydney’s bid to get the 2000 Olympics. I’d never seen this before, so I was very excited to see such a rarity. Big thanks again to barbara.

During Sydney’s bid for the 2000 Olympic Games Jon Dee managed to recruit Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman to present a video that supported Sydney’s ‘Green Bid’.

Written and directed by Jon, the video outlined the way that Sydney would reduce the environmental impact of the Sydney Games. Released 4 days before the final decision was taken by the IOC, the video generated more global publicity than any other PR initiative organised for the Sydney bid.
