View Comments Nicole Kidman has more plans afoot for her current project: starring as English chemist and X-ray crystallographer Rosalind Franklin in Photograph 51. In addition to Broadway plans for the Anna Ziegler bio-play, the Oscar winner would like to headline a movie version.Director Michael Grandage told the U.K.’s Daily Mail that he’d like the big-screen version to be more than just a filmed version of the play. “It’s going to be a proper picture,” Grandage said. Kidman added that she’d like to do the play in “another city” before working on a film adaptation. We’re guessing that city is New York.Photograph 51 explores the life of Franklin, who was instrumental to cracking the code for DNA and asks what is sacrificed in the pursuit of science, love and a place in history. In a recent interview with Broadway.com, Kidman’s co-star Edward Bennett said, “This part means so much to [Kidman] because of her father [a biochemist who died last year].”In addition to Kidman and Bennett, the play features Will Attenborough, Stephen Campbell Moore, Patrick Kennedy, Joshua Silver, Lorna Stuart, William Throughton and Patrick Walshe McBride. Photograph 51 plays London’s Noel Coward Theatre through November 21.
