Nicole Kidman to Adapt Off-Broadway Vampire Drama ‘Cuddles’

Nicole Kidman and her shingle, Blossom Films, has optioned the film rights to the Off-Broadway vampire drama “Cuddles.”

Penned by playwright Joseph Wilde, the thriller examines the strange and disturbing forms love can take. Wilde will write the film adaptation from his own play. Kidman will produce with Blossom partner Per Saari.

“Joe’s voice is so beautifully subversive. He’s exactly the kind of young writer Blossom is looking to support,” Kidman said in a statement.

Production company Blossom Films, founded by Kidman and Saari in 2010, is no stranger to literary adaptations. It most recently produced “The Family Fang,” based on Kevin Wilson’s bestselling novel. It was directed by Jason Bateman, and starred Kidman, Bateman and Christopher Walken. Blossom Films is also currently shooting the HBO series “Big Little Lies,” based on the New York Times bestseller by Liane Moriarty. It’s helmed by Jean-Marc Vallee, and stars Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and Shailene Woodley.

The deal was brokered by Matt Connell of Berlin Associates, who reps Wilde. Kidman is repped by CAA, Media Talent Group and Shanahan Management.
