Nicole Kidman Hopes to Bring PHOTOGRAPH 51 to Australia, New York and the Big Screen


Nicole Kidman is currently starring in Photograph 51, which runs at the Noel Coward Theatre until November 21st.

According to the Dailymail, at a post-show Q&A, Kidman said she hopes to bring Photograph 51 to Australia and New York as well as make a film version.

Photograph 51 is about one of science's more remarkable women, Dr Rosalind Franklin (played by Kidman). Dr Franklin left post-war Paris for the altogether grimmer post-war London, to undertake research with Dr Maurice Wilkins of King's College. Despite their less than harmonious nature working relationship, Franklin and Wilkins - along with the assistance of James Watson and Dr Don Caspar - made significant progress in the field of genetics, learning about the structure of DNA and ultimately enabling countless medical discoveries.

Kidman's theatre work includes The Blue Room (Donmar Warehouse and Cort Theatre, Broadway - Evening Standard Award, Olivier Award nomination). For television, her work includes Hemingway & Gellhorn (Emmy nomination, Golden Globe nomination); and her extensive film work includes To Die For (Golden Globe for Best Actress), Days of Thunder, Moulin Rouge! (Academy Award nomination, Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Musical), The Others (Golden Globe nomination, Saturn Award), The Hours (Academy Award, BAFTA, Golden Globe for Best Actress and Berlin Silver Bear), Cold Mountain, Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus, Stoker, Rabbit Hole (Golden Globe for Best Actress, Academy Award nomination), The Paperboy and Paddington. Upcoming films include Strangerland, Queen of the Desert, Genius, Lion and Secret in Their Eyes.
