With production on Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman set to begin sometime this month, the superhero adventure may be adding an A-list star to its cast. The Wrap reports that Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman is in talks for an unspecified role in the DC Comics adaptation, described only as a "high-ranking Amazonian warrior." There is already speculation that the actress could be playing Hyppolyta, the biological mother of Diana Prince (Gal Gadot), but that has not been confirmed yet.
While no plot details have been revealed, there have been rumors that part of the Wonder Woman story will be set on the island of Themyscira, which has been Diana's home since she made her DC Comics debut back in the 1940s. It has also been rumored that another part of the story will take place during World War I in the 1920s, with the plot also taking fans to present day, which will reportedly tie into her appearances in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League Part 1. Wonder Woman is slated for release on June 23, 2017, five months before Justice League Part 1 arrives on November 11, 2017.Read More
Mad Max: Fury Road isn't the only Australian film set to make waves at the box office this year. From director Kim Farrant comes the harrowing thriller Strangerland. Nicole Kidman returns to her native country for this compelling drama, though this role is quite a bit different from her big screen introduction in Australia's BMX Bandits.
Nicole Kidman stars as Catherine, who, along with her husband Matt Parker (Joseph Fiennes) is trying to adjust to her new life in the remote Australian desert town of Nathgari. They are pleasant but keep to themselves, unwilling to get close to anyone. On the eve of a massive dust storm, their lives are rocked when their two teenage children, Lily and Tom disappear into the desert. With Nathgari now eerily smothered in red dust and darkness, the locals join the search lead by local cop, David Rae (Hugo Weaving).Read More
