In the Telegraph’s profile of Nicole Kidman, in which she talks about many things, including her involvement in Steve Shainberg’s currently lensing Fur, one paragraph stands out:

“When she finishes Fur she has scheduled two weeks’ work on the drama The Lady from Shanghai in Hong Kong and has nothing else planned except a vague commitment to do a film with Crowe and Australian director Baz Luhrmann sometime in the not-too-near future.”

Two weeks work on a Wong Kar Wai film? Um… I wouldn’t lay odds on it.

Of the film and Kidman, the director has said, “Normally I will build a story around one character and I think it will be interesting to have Nicole Kidman play it as a woman who claims she came from Shanghai, and it’s very mysterious.”
