No More Spying Nickers

Nicole Kidman’s so coveted right now that she just can’t accept every offer she gets. The latest gig she’d planned to do, but has turned down at the eleventh hour, is “Mr and Mrs Smith”, about a bored married couple who discover they are enemy assassins hired to kill each other, set to co-star Brad Pitt. Director Doug Liman [“The Bourne Identity”] is now on the lookout for a new lead, with Variety mentioning Catherine Zeta-Jones as the frontrunner. Nickers is too busy with her “Stepford Wives” commitments to me the film’s Mrs Smith apparently.
