Kidman reunites with Mitchell, who directed the star in the 2010 Oscar-nominated film "Rabbit Hole." She joins Ruth Wilson (Constellations), Matt Lucas ("Bridesmaids") and Elle Fanning ("Maleficient").
Based on a short story by "Coraline" writer Neil Gaiman, "How To Talk To Girls At Parties" tells the story of an alien who breaks away from her group while touring the universe. According to Variety, it will be in the spirit of Romeo and Juliet, but the feuding families will be replaced with aliens and punks.
This year, Mitchell will be honored with a Special Tony Award for his ongoing work in theatre. Known on Broadway as the co-creator of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Mitchell recently returned to the production to star in its title role, reprising his performance from the 2001 film and the original Off-Broadway production. Mitchell's directing credits include "Rabbit Hole" and "Shortbus." Mitchell had a recurring role in the hit HBO series "Girls."
"How To Talk To Girls At Parties" is slated for release in 2016.
