Kidman to Star in Universal Horror Pic


Universal Pictures has acquired remake rights to the Colombian horror film Al final del espectro, and will develop it as a starring and producing vehicle for Nicole Kidman.

Juan Felipe Orozco, who helmed the original, is attached to direct the remake. Fernley Phillips (The Number 23) is writing the script.

Kidman will produce through her Blossom Films, teamed with Vertigo Entertainment partners Roy Lee and Doug Davison and Rick Schwartz. The latter was a co-producer of The Departed and worked with Kidman as executive producer of The Others and Birthday Girl.

Kidman will play a woman who, after a tragedy, is encouraged by her father to take refuge in a fancy apartment building. She becomes a shut-in, and begins to see a ghost.

Vertigo’s Lee and Davison executive produced The Invasion, as well as The Eye remake that stars Jessica Alba for Lionsgate. They’re producing A Tale of Two Sisters at DreamWorks and are prepping the Screen Gems remake of the unreleased Spanish language horror film Rec.
