EXCLUSIVE: On the heels of her starring role in Hemingway & Gellhorn, which earned her Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG nominations, Nicole Kidman is back in business with HBO Films on Reconstructing Amelia, a film adaptation of Kimberly McCreight’s best-selling debut novel recently published by HarperCollins. Kidman is set to star and executive produce the project, now in development, through her Blossom Films. Reconstructing Amelia centers on a workaholic single mother (Kidman) who, after her teenage daughter’s apparent suicide at her tony Brooklyn private school, attempts to reconstruct the events leading up to the girl’s death, drawing her into the world of teenage social media and revealing the secrets mother and daughter were keeping from each other. CAA-repped Kidman is executive producing with Blossom Films’ Per Saari. McCreight is with Resolution and Marly Rusoff.
