The Girl With Something Extra

Nicole Kidman has signed on to star and co-produce the film adaptation of David Ebershoff's 2000 bestseller The Danish Girl,a fictionalized account of the life of Lili Elbe, the first person to undergo sex reassignment surgery.

Kidman will play Elbe, who was born Einar Wegener and was married to fellow artist Gerda Gottlieb, who will be portrayed by Charlize Theron. The two actresses are no strangers to GLBT-themed films, as they both won Academy Awards for playing bisexual characters in The Hours and Monster, respectively.
