Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie to star in Roger Ailes film

02 Août, 2018, 01:01 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

According to Variety, Oscar victor Nicole Kidman is in negotiations to play Gretchen Carlson alongside Charlize Theron's Megyn Kelly in the still-untitled film about the Fox News stars who left the conservative network because of reported sexual harassment at the hands of disgraced former Fox News chief Ailes (who died in May 2017). Read on to find out who they'll be playing. It was her and Megyn Kelly's sexual harassment allegations that helped contribute to Ailes' departure from Fox.

The film will tell the story of the ensemble of women who took on the toxic male culture of Fox News and helped depose its chief architect.

Robbie, 28, will play an as yet unidentified producer working at the channel. Indeed, the news comes from Variety, who reports that the Oscar-winning actress is in line to take on the key role in Fair and Balanced, which boasts a screenplay by Oscar-winning The Big Short co-writer Charles Randolph.

Jennifer Lopez to be honored with Vanguard Award at VMAs
The MTV Video Music Awards are a few weeks away, but one of the big winners of the night has already been announced. Jennifer Lopez has just been announced as this year's recipient of the VMA Video Vanguard award .

It's the latest ripped-from-recent-headlines offering from director Jay Roach, who also helmed 2008's Recount (about the 2000 presidential election fiasco) and 2012's Game Change (about Sarah Palin joining John McCain's presidential ticket in 2008).

The trade newspaper reported that the film would nearly certainly include another former anchor, Greta Van Susteren, as well as the sacked presenter Bill O'Reilly and the network's owner, Australian media mogul Rupert Murdoch, as characters.

According to Variety, Kidman is in talks to play Gretchen Carlson, the former Fox News anchor who filed a lawsuit against Ailes in 2016 after alleging she was sacked for turning down his advances. None of the men have been cast yet, including Ailes, so it'll be interesting to see which actors are willing to sign up and make themselves look like monsters in this project. I'm not quite sure what to think about the movie, but at least this cast should turn in some dynamite performances along the way.
