Nicole Kidman Books a Big Beautiful Pair of Screen Adaptations:

 Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty

Janice Y.K. Lee’s The Expatriates 

I’m so delighted Nicole Kidman, via her own film company Blossom Films, is flexing her powerful muscles to bring books to the screen. Books that make the label ‘womens stories’ mean something totally different than it once did. Yes, we are interested in relationships, but it’s not just romance and roses, it’s stories of other lives told with depth and detail that we find most fascinating.  

Here’s the news about Nine Perfect Strangers Nicole Kidman shared on her Instagram. It’s the next Liane Moriarty novel and lucky Nicole has already read it, even though it doesn’t hit the shelves until the fall. 

Could ten days at a health resort really change you forever? These nine perfect strangers are about to find out… 

The book from the author of Big Little Lies is due out in October and we can’t wait to read it!

We have a lot more detail when it comes to The Expatriates, already included on Kidman’s IMDB as being In PreProduction.

“I’m so thrilled about the Blossom-Amazon collaboration. The Expatriates is just the beginning of our shared goal in making delicious stories with something meaningful to say about the world.”

 About The Expatriates from Penguin Random House:

Lee explores with devastating poignancy the emotions, identities, and relationships of three very different American women living in the same small expat community in Hong Kong.
Mercy, a young Korean American and recent Columbia graduate, is adrift, undone by a terrible incident in her recent past. Hilary, a wealthy housewife, is haunted by her struggle to have a child, something she believes could save her foundering marriage. Meanwhile, Margaret, once a happily married mother of three, questions her maternal identity in the wake of a shattering loss. As each woman struggles with her own demons, their lives collide in ways that have irreversible consequences for them all. Atmospheric, moving, and utterly compelling, The Expatriates confirms Lee as an exceptional talent and one of our keenest observers of women’s inner lives.
The press release isn't saying which role precisely Nicole Kidman will play—presuming she’ll play one of them—if any of you have already finished the book, I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Fellow Kidman fans can see Kidman next in Big Little Lies Season Two and Boy Erased—based on the book— in the fall along with Aquaman in December.
