Nicole Kidman Joins Oscar Race with "Rabbit Hole," Film Acquired by Lionsgate 


It's one of the most hottest properties at the Toronto International Film Festival and now, Lionsgate has acquired North American distribution rights to "Rabbit Hole" according to TheWrap.

Based on a Broadway play, the plot revolves around a happily married couple (Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart) whose lives turn tragic when their 4-year old son died in a traffic accident. Drama! But there's some redemptive qualities to the project, and the play is a tearjerker!

Directed by John Cameron Mitchell ("Hedwig and the Angry Inch") and adapted for the big screen by playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, Lionsgate is planning to provide a big Oscar campaign for the movie. And why not? Kidman is an Oscar winner and an Academy darling.
