Nicole Kidman Starring in ‘Silent Wife’ from Director Adrian Lyne

Nicole Kidman will star in the thriller “Silent Wife” with “Unfaithful” director Adrian Lyne on board to helm from a script by Billy Ray.

FilmNation is introducing the project to buyers at the American Film Market. CAA is handling domestic sales.

“Silent Wife” centers on a spouse who discovers that her husband is leaving her for a younger woman. She responds by beginning to plan his murder.

Kidman was most recently seen “Queen of the Desert” and “Grace of Monaco.” She’s been loosely attached to the project since 2013, when the bestseller by A.S.A. Harrison was published.

Lyne’s previous credits include “Fatal Attraction,” “Indecent Proposal” and “9 1/2 Weeks.” Ray’s credits include “The Hunger Games,” “Captain Phillips” and “The Secret in Their Eyes.”

Producers are Lyne, Kidman, Per Saari’s Blossom Films, Paula Mazur and Mitchell Kaplan’s Mazur/Kaplan Company.

CAA represents Lyne, Kidman, and Ray. Kidman is also represented by attorney Alan Wertheimer at Jackoway Tyerman and Media Talent Group. Ray is also represented by attorney Peter Nichols at Lichter, Grossman, Nichols, Adler & Feldman. Mazur/Kaplan is represented by Shelley Surpin of Surpin & Mayersohn.
