Raimi Down the "Rabbit Hole"

Posted on

Fox Searchlight confirmed today that Sam Raimi is attached to direct the Nicole Kidman-starring drama, Rabbit Hole. The film is not yet a go but the parts are slowly moving into place. Based on David Lindsay-Abaire’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway play, which earned Cynthia Nixon a 2006 Tony Award, the project centers on a happily married couple whose lives are shattered by an unexpected tragedy. The two take an emotional, redemptive journey to regain their happiness. The movie would mark quite a departure for the director most closely associated with the Spider-Man juggernaut. Then again, Raimi did direct the 1999 Kevin Costner film For the Love of the Game; perhaps his journey will be a redemptive one as well.
