The Danish Girl, the Nicole Kidman–produced film in which she will star as a transgender person, has a new helmer, reports Variety. Tomas Alfredson, best known for last year’s acclaimed vampire drama Let the Right One In, will now direct.
The film is adapted from David Ebershoff's best-selling novel, which is loosely based on the true story of Einar Wegener, the Danish painter who in 1931 became the first person
to go through a sex-reassignment surgery to become a woman. Kidman will play Wegener.
