Variety is reporting that Gwyneth Paltrow will join Nicole Kidman in The Danish Girl, an adaptation of the David Ebershoff novel about the first post-operative transsexual. The tome tells the story of the relationship between transsexual Einar Wegener and his wife. Kidman will play Einar and Paltrow will play the wife Greta, who stood by her partner through the sex-change operation. Thomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In) is directing a script by Lucinda Coxon.
