Thesp in talks to fill in for Kidman on 'Producers'
Steiner Studios. There’s no word on whether Thurman’s deal will be made in time. Kidman, shooting “Bewitched,” wouldn’t have had enough time to rehearse the intricate song-and-dance routines in “The Producers” before she headed into her next film, the Oz-set “Eucalyptus,” opposite Russell Crowe and Geoffrey Rush. Tuner’s cast includes Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick, plus their Broadway co-stars Roger Bart and Gary Beach, joined by Will Ferrell. Neither Brooks nor Thurman’s reps at CAA returned calls Wednesday.
