Nicole Kidman’s Sex Change Drama


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.

Charlize Theron, who'd been attached to play Wegener's wife, Gerda, has departed the production and a replacement has not yet been announced. "We have been in talks for close to a year, and we are soon going into production," Alfredson said to the daily trade paper.
