Thought Nicole Kidman had a creepy relationship with her kids in ”The Others”? Wait ’til you see her in ”Birth.” According to Variety, Kidman is close to signing on to the thriller, in which she meets a 10-year-old boy who explains his crush on her by claiming to be the reincarnation of her late husband.

The movie is to be directed by ”Sexy Beast”’s Jonathan Glazer, who cowrote the screenplay with Jean-Claude Carriere (”The Unbearable Lightness of Being”). If Kidman takes the role, it will be the latest in a string of parts that have paired the 5’10” actress with diminutive leading men. She’s also in talks to star in a big-screen version of ”Bewitched,” with Mike Myers mentioned to play Darrin. Plus, there are the movies she did with Dustin Hoffman (”Billy Bathgate”), Joaquin Phoenix (”To Die For”), and her ex-husband.
