Newly separated NICOLE KIDMAN is being chased by top director LARS VON TRIER - to star in his new thriller DOGVILLE.
The EYES WIDE SHUT actress, who dropped out of the movie PANIC ROOM last week because of knee injuries, announced on Monday (05FEB01) she was separating from her husband TOM CRUISE after 10 years of marriage, with Cruise filing for divorce two days later (07FEB01).
Now Von Trier, who directed BJORK's debut movie DANCER IN THE DARK, wants her to forget her troubles and join him as his next leading lady. But Kidman first has to shoot THE HOURS, in which she's co- starring with MERYL STREEP and JULIANNE MOORE. (LE/HR/KW)
