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.
