Nicole Kidman to star in Nazi film

Nicole Kidman and Ralph Fiennes are set to co-star on a Nazi drama from the filmmaker who directed her to an Oscar in The Hours. The Reader is set in postwar Germany and follows the story of Michael Berg, who is 15 years old when he begins a long, obsessive affair with Hanna, an enigmatic older woman. He never learns much about her, and when she disappears one day, he expects never to see her again. But to his horror, he discovers that she is a defendant in a Nazi war crimes trial, and it soon becomes clear that she is guilty of an unspeakable crime. Production is set to begin next month in Germany - maybe Kidman will run into her ex, Tom Cruise, who is there filming a Nazi flick himself.
