Nicole Kidman has opted to drop out of her new film, The Reader, now that she is carrying an Urban baby, and Kate Winslet has taken over the role.
It's really a win-win situation for everybody, as Nicole is finally having the baby she's been wanting, and Kate is getting the role she had to turn down due to scheduling conflicts. One source told PageSix.com, "The role was originally written for Kate, but because it was supposed to start filming in the fall, when she was working on Revolutionary Road, she had to drop out. Nicole was then hired, but her schedule kept getting pushed back and now she's pregnant, so the role went back to Kate." Also a winner in this scenario -- the producers -- since Nicole's last few movies have been stinkers.
