Nicole Kidman May Replace Sofia Vergara in Lee Daniels’s Paperboy

By

Nicole Kidman is in talks to join The Paperboy, Lee Daniels's next drama. The film follows a reporter and his brother as they investigate a murder case in order to exonerate a man on death row. Kidman would replace Sofia Vergara, who dropped out due to a scheduling conflict with Modern Family, as a lady with a dark mind who writes letters to men on death row, bringing the case to attention of the reporter. Matthew McConaughey and Zac Efron are set to co-star, but the lead role is currently unoccupied, since Tobey Maguire dropped out last week. Paging Andrew Garfield? [HR]
