Shailene Woodley Joins Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon in HBO’s ‘Big Little Lies’

HBO’s A-list limited series “Big Little Lies” is getting even more star power.

Shailene Woodley is joining Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman in David E. Kelley’s project, based on the book of the same name.

Adapted from Liane Moriarty’s 2014 novel, “Big Little Lies” is described as a darkly comic drama centering on three mothers of kindergartners whose apparently perfect lives unravel to the point of murder.

Insiders tell Variety that Woodley’s casting has been in talks for a while, though her deal is not yet closed. She will reportedly play a single mother. HBO has yet to confirm her involvement. Kidman made the announcement at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit in New Delhi on Saturday.

Witherspoon and Kidman — who optioned the book rights through their respective production shingles, Pacific Standard Films and Blossom Films — are also serving as exec producers with Pacific Standard’s Bruna Papandrea and Blossom Films’ Per Saari. Kelley is also exec producing and writing an undetermined number of episodes of the television adaptation.

Woodley will be seen next in “Snowden” and “The Divergent Series: Allegiant.”
