Nicole Kidman: Replacing Sofia Vergara in 'Paperboy'?

Nicole Kidman may be joining the cast of The Paperboy!

The 44-year-old Aussie actress would join Matthew McConaughey and Zac Efron in the new project.

Originally slated to star in the film, directed by PreciousLee Daniels, were Tobey Maguire and Sofia Vergara, but both had to drop out.

The Paperboy is about a reporter and his brother who investigate the events surrounding a murder in order to exonerate a man on death row,” THR writes, adding, “Kidman, if her deal can be made, will play a woman with a dark side who writes letters to men on death row. She brings the case to the attention of the reporter, developing a relationship with him.”

Give someone new a break. Nicole sucks.

I don’t know much about Nicole but I think it would be cool for someone like Zac to be able to work with someone as seasoned as her. :)

Nicole is one of the best actress there is out there..

NOT trying to be ugly but I think her “star” is on the decline. I just can’t seem to watch a movie with her in it and “see” the character she’s supposed to be playing. I always see her in a movie as Nicole Kidman trying to play somebody else. I’m sure she is talented in her acting (she has won an Academy Award and had many award nominations) but I just can’t put her in the character”s place for some reason. With many other actresses I can easily forget that they are a celebrity playing a part. We shall see, hopefully she proves me wrong and goes on to do many noteworthy award winning roles for many years to come.

Good choice Nicole is awesome.

Everyone but Zac Efron seems to be dropping out of this movie. Funny that!

Sounds good but then again it does have Zac in the movie so obviously i would watch it lol.

Nicole Kidman is always going to be known as one of the greatest actresses of all time. Nicole has it all, looks, talent and doesn’t have Tom Cruise putting her down. Speaking of someone that cannot act it’s Katie Holmes, that’s for sure.
