It was bound to happen sooner or later. Now that Nicole Kidman is arguably the busiest woman in Hollywood, she finally looks set for an on-screen battle with former husband Tom Cruise.
Expect the curses to fly when the pair star in competing witch-based movies due next year.
According to trade magazine Daily Variety, Cruise is preparing for a role in a Danny DeVito-directed remake of the 1942 film I Married a Witch, which will see the two short guys teaming up for a stab at comedy.
The flick is about a witch who puts a curse on a family's male descendants – only to fall in love with one of them.
Kidman, meanwhile, will star in Bewitched , an adaptation of the TV series about Samantha, a witch who marries a mortal.
Cruise originally developed I Married a Witch five years ago as a movie in which he was going to star with his then-wife Kidman.
