Nicole Kidman Abandons Movie Role
Kidman had to bow out due to a scheduling conflict, according to her rep. The actress is producing and starring in a new movie, Rabbit Hole, with Aaron Eckhart, which will be filming at the same time as Allen's project.
Variety reports that no replacement for Kidman has been named yet.
Allen's untitled movie is due to be shot in London this summer. Meanwhile, Kidman, 41, can be seen, albeit in limited release, with Slumdog Millionaire child star Rubina Ali, 9, in a new commercial for Schweppes drinks.
In it, Kidman plays a princess en route to a palace in India, where the handsome Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal meets her.
Filmed in India, the commercial was directed by Shekhar Kapur (Elizabeth) and produced by Ridley Scott (Gladiator), reports Britain's Daily Telegraph.
