Nicole Kidman to star and produce A.S.A. Harrison's The Silent Wife

Deadline reports that Nicole Kidman will star in and produce an adaptation of The Silent Wife by the late A.S.A. Harrison. It was the first work of fiction by the author, who died a few months before her book became such a literary sensation. The movie deal was made with Harrison’s estate, which was repped by Paradigm on behalf of Samantha Haywood and The Transatlantic Agency.

Mazur/Kaplan partners Paula Mazur and Mitchell Kaplan have teamed with Kidman and Per Saari’s Blossom Films to option the psychological thriller and produce. Mazur/Kaplan will fund development. Book-centric producers Mazur/Kaplan made Nim’s Island and are developing The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Society with StudioCanal for Simon Curtis to direct and are adapting Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand, also with StudioCanal, and Jack Thorne and Deborah Moggach writing.
