Nicole Kidman will play in Holland, Michigan | Entertainment
Nicole Kidman is going to star in “Holland, Michigan”.
The 54-year-old actress will work with director Mimi Cave on the thriller, which reportedly has a Hitchcockian feel and involves the secrets that lie beneath a Midwestern town, reports Deadline.
The film is based on a screenplay by Andrew Sodroski, which topped the 2013 Blacklist – a compilation of the most highly rated screenplays to date – and Nicole will also produce with Per Saari under his own Blossom Films banner.
Peter Dealbert for Pacific View Management Productions is also producing and Kate Churchill will serve as executive producer.
The project sees the ‘Big Little Lies’ star reteam with Amazon Studios for the first time since her nominated turn on ‘Being the Ricardos’.
In this film, Nicole played comedy legend Lucille Ball and previously admitted that she didn’t fully realize how “difficult” her job would be until she started working, as she had to put on the star’s life on and off stage.
She explained: “It was two roles. Lucy Ricardo and Lucille Ball. The differences in tone of voice, the differences in mannerisms, the differences in performance, you’re a real woman – that’s where I I said to myself: “Oh my God, this is rich, difficult and extraordinary”.
“Lucy Ricardo’s recreation was interesting… She had life behind her eyes. When she did that, there was a whole other life for her.
“So that’s why it doesn’t imitate her, it goes into her… I could do the moves, the choreography, but where’s the life? Her eyes are twinkling, and there’s a reason going on. This It’s not robotic, it’s very, very alive… You have to find life.”
And Nicole worked tirelessly with a dialect coach for the film.
She said: “I hadn’t quite realized with his accent, his voice, what I was taking. But I had the most magnificent dialect coach who just said ‘it’s going to be fine. They just walked me through, sound by sound, step by step, on Zoom.
“I just worked on it vocally, which is very unusual for me, and then went into her emotionally.”
