Starring opposite legendary Al Pacino


Newly married Nicole Kidman is set to leave hubby Keith at home (strumming, no less) for a few weeks with Big Boy Caprice, according to a stone tablet in Gnocci lovin’ Italy.

According to Coming Soon, Nickers is set to join Al Pacino in a remake of “Witness to the Prosecution”. Michael Radford, whose newest film is “Flawless” starring Demi Moore, will direct.

MGM has been working on the film – with Pacino attached from the get go – since 2004. At that stage, David E.Kelley was working on the script, and veteran director Robert Benton (“Kramer Vs Kramer”) was attached to direct.

Pacino plays the role of Sir Wilfrid Robarts – played by Charles Laughton in Billy Wilder’s 1957 original – a lead attorney in a case in which a wife appears as a witness for the prosecution against her husband.

No idea when the film will get underway, considering Kidman’s choca-bloc to-do list: She’s got about four of five films to do within the next year, including that long-awaited epic with Hugh Jackman, “The Lady from Shanghai”, and the comedy “Headhunters”. Apparently Chris Weitz is also eyeing the Australian actress for a role in “His Dark Materials: The Golden Compass”, the first of a series of movies based on the popular fantasy novels by Philip Pullman.
