Kidman Joins “Top of the Lake” Sequel

It’s now confirmed – after a year of talks, Nicole Kidman is now set to re-team with her “Portrait Of A Lady” director Jane Campion for the second season of the thriller series “Top Of The Lake” for The BBC, SundanceTV and Foxtel.

Created by Campion and Gerald Lee, the 2013 first season saw Elisabeth Moss playing Detective Robin Griffin who was investigating the disappearance of a pregnant twelve-year-old girl.

The second season, going by the moniker “Top Of The Lake: China Girl,” picks up four years later with Griffin called in to look into the case of an unidentified body which washes up on Sydney’s Bondi Beach.

Kidman has just arrived in Sydney to begin filming her scenes. Gwendoline Christie (“Game of Thrones”) also reportedly has a major role in the production. Liv Hewson, David Dencik, Alice Englert and Ewen Leslie co-star.

The series will air on BBC Two in the UK and on SundanceTV and Hulu in the U.S. Campion is co-directing with Ariel Kleiman (“Partisan”).
