Ryan Murphy has shared that Nicole’s new film The Prom will be on Netflix premiering on December 11. Also he released the first poster from the film.
It’s time to go to prom later this year.
Ryan Murphy’s upcoming Netflix adaptation of “The Prom” will release on Dec. 11, the acclaimed creator announced on Instagram on Sunday.
“On December 11, let Netflix take you to the Prom you didn’t get this year,” Murphy wrote on Instagram with a flashy sign highlighting its star-studded cast including Meryl Streep, James Corden, Nicole Kidman and Kerry Washington.
“The Prom” was originally a Broadway musical that debuted in 2018. It was based on an original concept by Jack Viertel with music by Matthew Sklar and lyrics by Chad Beguelin. The musical follows four Broadway actors who travel to a conservative Indiana town to help a lesbian student who is banned from bringing her girlfriend to her high school prom. The show was nominated for six Tony Awards, including best musical, original score, and lead actor and lead actress in a musical.
Murphy directed the film adaptation, and Martin and Beguelin wrote the screenplay and served as producers. It will be the first film project under Murphy’s groundbreaking Netflix deal, which was inked in 2018 after his departure from Fox and was estimated to be worth up to $300 million.
Production on “The Prom” was temporarily shut down in Los Angeles due to the coronavirus pandemic, but once the industry began to reopen, the film was able to finish shooting.
On a recent episode of Variety’s “The Big Ticket” podcast, Washington praised her fellow cast members Ariana Debose and Streep.
“[Debose] is Anita in Steven Spielberg’s ‘West Side Story’ and she’s just so brilliant. And she was the Bullet in ‘Hamilton.’ I’m really excited for everybody to see her in the film,” she said. “Meryl Streep is phenomenal. She’s always phenomenal, but I’m telling you, in ‘The Prom,’ it’s like just being there during filming. I was like, ‘She’s incredible.’”
They’ve been married for 14 years and still going as strong as ever.
And Keith Urban, 52, is happy to admit that he was batting out of his league when he landed Nicole Kidman, 53, for his wife.
Speaking to this week’s Stellar Magazine, the country singer said: ‘I definitely married up. Isn’t that what we’re all supposed to be doing?’
He admits: ‘Nic’s definitely had a big impact on my music in the last five to six years particularly.
‘She had different musical tastes than I did when we met. It really liberated me a lot, introduced me to a lot of music I’d missed.
‘We also find huge common threads in the Aussie music we love, because we grew up at the same time.’
He said the main change she inspired is making him ‘more fearless with my artistry… She’s just very willing to try things; that’s rubbed off on me.’
In June, the couple celebrated their 14th wedding anniversary, with Keith sharing a tribute to social media.
The singer posted a sweet photo of the couple holding hands while jumping in the air on a beach and wrote: ‘Happy Anniversary Baby!!!!!’
He continued: ’14 years… and I feel like your boyfriend in ALL the right ways.’
2003 was a busy year for Nicole as she did press for her films The Hours, The Human Stain, Dogville, and Cold Mountain. She won the Golden Globe, the BAFTA, and the Academy Award for Best Actress. Go check the pictures out in our gallery.
– Nicole Kidman Online > EVENTS And APPEARANCES > 2003
Today is our fourth anniversary here at Nicole Kidman Online! I am so proud of how this site is growing and becoming. I hope that you the visitors are enjoying it as much as I have maintaining it.
In honor of our anniversary we have a brand new look … featuring themes by Claudia at Never Enough Design.
In 1983, Nicole did two films in Australia; BMX Bandits and Bush Christmas. I have added images to the gallery from both of these films.
Nicole has given us a small glimpse into her new project Nine Perfect Strangers:
Status cannot protect secrets. Uncover the mystery with The Undoing, premiering October 25.
The limited series The Undoing, premiering October 25th , stars Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant as Grace and Jonathan Fraser, who are living the only lives they ever wanted for themselves. Overnight a chasm opens in their lives: a violent death and a chain of terrible revelations. Left behind in the wake of a spreading and very public disaster and horrified by the ways in which she has failed to heed her own advice, Grace must dismantle one life and create another for her child (Noah Jupe) and her family. Directed by Susanne Bier; created and written for television by David E. Kelley, who also serves as showrunner; executive produced by Susanne Bier, David E. Kelley, Nicole Kidman, Per Saari, Bruna Papandrea, Stephen Garrett and Celia Costas; based on the novel “You Should Have Known,” by Jean Hanff Korelitz.
For Variety’s new series of Actors on Actors Nicole did a video chat with her good friend Russell Crowe.
Russell Crowe came to prestige television for the first time this season with “The Loudest Voice,” a limited series about the life of Fox News creator Roger Ailes. No stranger to the medium is his old friend Nicole Kidman, whose second season of “Big Little Lies” saw her storyline of domestic abuse resonate even after her abuser had died. They talked to each other over video chat for Variety’s Actors on Actors issue.
Russell Crowe: I have to be totally honest. I haven’t seen the second series yet. So my reference point is the first series. That’s some extremely fine writing.
Nicole Kidman: Liane [Moriarty] came up with a catalyst to get the second series going, this character of Mary Louise. Meryl Streep comes in playing my mother-in-law. And that’s my storyline. You’ll have to watch it.
Crowe: How many films have you done with Meryl Streep?
Kidman: Three. Well, count this as a film. And we just finished a film together. There’s a lot more to come.
Crowe: I’ve had maybe two conversations with her ever, but I think she’s so special. Tell me about working with Meryl Streep.
Kidman: She’s very similar to how we work, in the sense that she melts into it. Every take is different. She’s like quicksilver. You would love her. And having just worked with her back-to-back — I did “Big Little Lies” where she’s in the cardigan, and she’s my pious mother-in-law. And then we’ve just done a big musical together, which was the complete opposite of “Big Little Lies,” where we are singing and dancing and being absolutely ridiculous. It was called “The Prom,” and Ryan Murphy directed it. We still have three more days to shoot.
Crowe: It’s a different director, you said, for the second series?
Kidman: Yeah. Jean-Marc Vallée was directing “Sharp Objects” with Amy Adams, and he was exhausted. It’s a huge feat to direct those seven hours. Because you, on “Loudest Voice,” had how many directors?
Kidman: I’ve only ever done limited series with one director. So I don’t know the idea of a different director coming in and directing a couple of episodes. I just finished another series [“The Undoing”], and that was Susanne Bier. And she directed all six hours.
Crowe: I don’t see how anybody can go into a series like that and be comfortable with directors coming and going. It’s a kink in the parabola. It’s not necessarily great. It can cross over work that you’ve done earlier. Because the next person coming in isn’t seeing things in the same way.Continue Reading
Nicole is one of the artists featured in the Los Angeles Times Emmy’s Drama Roundtable.
Weeks before the Black Lives Matter protests broke out around the globe in the wake of the senseless killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, inclusivity, the feeling of “otherness” and the struggle for an essential humanity were already on the minds of the eight actors gathered via video conference for The Envelope’s annual Drama Roundtable conversation.
“All of us play these characters that society could perceive of as ‘other’ and decide to limit the way that we deal with each other’s depth as human beings and complexity. That is our job as storytellers, to make people take pause and realize that human beings, no matter who we are, we’re complicated and rich and deep,” said Kerry Washington during the May 17 chat with L.A. Times culture columnist LZ Granderson. “And whether we look like you or don’t look like you, there are elements to our story that are unique and precious,” the “Little Fires Everywhere” actress added.
Regina King stars as Angela Abar and her alter ego Sister Night in “Watchmen,” a series that launches its story with the 1921 race massacre in Tulsa, Okla., before shifting into a fictional aftermath. “What was really attractive to me about the character is this — which I think is something that so many humans experience and don’t realize they’re experiencing — is this trauma that she’s inherited,” King said. “So much of her life right now is informed by that trauma [from the massacre of Black residents and business owners]. She’s kind of created this world where being an outsider is actually a safe space to be.”
Sandra Oh noted that even when her ethnicity is not the point of her casting, she tries “to infuse more pieces of me into my character’s ethnicity and cultural background. We carry our culture, we carry our history,” the “Killing Eve” star noted.
“I was reading President Obama’s commencement speech, and it was talking about being alive to one another’s struggles at this time” added “Succession” actor Jeremy Strong. “It feels like what you guys are talking about and the way that you’re doing that through storytelling is a way that we [as actors] might be able to contribute to that, by making that struggle alive for the audience.”
Cate Blanchett, who stars in the limited series “Mrs. America,” Hugh Jackman, from the television movie “Bad Education,” Nicole Kidman of “Big Little Lies” and Cynthia Erivo of “The Outsider” joined in the conversation that veered from uncovering secrets to the pandemic to polarizing stories. Their conversation here has been edited for clarity and length.Continue Reading
