Kidman Bows Out of The Producers

by | December 10, 2004 | Comments

Citing a scheduling conflict, Nicole Kidman has bowed out of Mel Brooks’ big-screen adaptation of the Broadway musical "The Producers." Her rep tells Variety that she "wouldn’t have enough time to rehearse the intricate song and dance routines in ‘The Producers‘ before she heads into her next film, the Oz-set ‘Eucalyptus,’ opposite fellow Aussies Russell Crowe and Geoffrey Rush." In the movie, Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick reprise their roles as the shady producer and accountant, respectively, who try to defraud investors by putting on a show about Hitler, hoping it will bomb with the audience so they can pocket the extra cash. Kidman was to play their Swedish bombshell secretary. She is currently filming "Bewitched," the film adaptation of a 1960 sitcom about an actor who enlists a witch to play his on-screen wife.
