David Lindsay-Abaire Will Reunite With Nicole Kidman For "The Family Fang" Film
08 May 2012
Pulitzer Prize-winning Rabbit Hole playwright David Lindsay-Abaire will pen a film adaptation of Kevin Wilson's "The Family Fang," which will star Oscar winner Nicole Kidman, according to Deadline.com.
Kidman, who received a Best Actress Oscar nomination for her performance in "Rabbit Hole"—also adapted by Lindsay-Abaire—will also produce the film, which centers on a couple of performance artists who enlist their unwilling children to take part in a mysterious final performance piece.
Lindsay-Abaire's Rabbit Hole won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2007. His play Good People was nominated for a Tony Award in 2011. He was also nominated for his work on Shrek the Musical.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
