Paltrow and Kidman find atypical romance in 'The Danish Girl'
Two Oscar winning actresses are finally going to appear together on the big screen.
Variety reports Gwyneth Paltrow will join Nicole Kidman in Thomas Alfredson's "The Danish Girl." The indie is based on David Ebershoff's novel that is inspired by the story of the relationship between the world's first post-operative transsexual, Einar Wegener and her wife, portrait painter Greta Wegener.
Kidman was already on board as Einar and now Paltrow will play Greta, who stood by her partner through the difficult operation only to finally let go when she realized the "man" she married no longer existed. The irony was that it was her insistence he step in for a missing female portrait model that spurred her desire to change.
Alfredson gained fame for his recent dramatic thriller "Let the Right One In."
Production is expected to begin sometime next year.
