Tomas Alfredson to direct Nicole Kidman in sex-change story

Posted on

Tomas Alfredson, the director of critically acclaimed Swedish vampire story Let the Right One In, will now direct Nicole Kidman in The Danish Girl, Variety reports. Lucinda Coxon adapted the script from David Ebershoff’s novel about a Danish painter who, in 1931, became the first person to go through a sex-change operation to become a woman. Kidman plays the painter, but Charlize Theron, who had been attached to play the painter’s wife Gerda, has now left the project.
