Not enough 'Hours' in the day?


Maybe we should introduce a new column – “The movie Nicole Kidman has passed on today”, because it seems she’s giving the birdie to a new film every day. Mind you, projects she originally agreed to do. Hot on the heels of dropping out of “The Brothers Grimm” and “Mr and Mrs Smith”, Jude Law’s hot water bottle has said no to the proposed second part of Lars von Trier’s “Dogville” trilogy, “Mandalay”. According to Variety, Her exit was caused by a scheduling conflict. The second film is on a tight timetable to finish shooting by July 2004, but Kidman is not available until the following fall. The role of Grace in the "U.S.A" trilogy will now be played by three different actresses across the three movies.
