Nicole Kidman and producer Lynda Obst (“Good Girls Revolt”) are teaming on a film adaptation of Meg Wolitzer’s new novel “The Female Persuasion” for her Blossom Films company. Kidman is also attached to star in the lead role.
The story centers on a shy college freshman named Greer who hopes her life is changed by Faith Frank, a central pillar of the woman’s movement for decades, and unknowingly hands her her fate along with a business card in a ladies room.
Kidman had previously hinted about her developing the project, writing on Instagram last week: “I didn’t need to be persuaded to join forces with two extraordinary women on adapting this brilliant and timely novel”. Kidman is currently working on the second season of HBO’s “Big Little Lies”.
