Nicole Kidman to star as Ava Gardner?

Page Six is reporting that Nicole Kidman might be set for a role in Martin Scorsese’s "The Aviator", the upcoming Howard Hughes biopic. "They are in talks," says an insider, "but Marty is so busy trying to get an Oscar right now he hasn’t made any final decisions." According to the report, Kidman would play the role of sexpot Ava Gardner. If Kidman accepts the role, it would mean she’ll be starring with Leonardo Di Caprio in two movies this year, the other being "Alexander the Great", in which she plays his mum.
