Nicole Kidman is in talks to play former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson in "Fair and Balanced", Annapurna's upcoming movie about disgraced Fox News Chief Roger Ailes.
Kidman will join Charlize Theron, who will portray former Fox News host Megyn Kelly. Jay Roach is directing with "The Big Short" scribe Charles Randolph penning the script.
Ailes ran Fox News and helped launch the careers of Kelly, Carlson, and Sean Hannity with his powerful channel. He also was also a prominent figure in Republican circles who helped elect presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George Bush. He was forced to resign in 2016 due to sexual harassment allegations, with Carlson and Kelly’s the most high-profile, and which contributed to his exit from the network.
