Nicole Kidman to Play Stepford Spouse in Thriller 'The Silent Wife'

Nicole Kidman will headline a thriller about a married woman scorned in the suspense thriller “The Silent Wife.” 

According to a press release, Kidman will play Jodi, a dedicated wife who, despite her husband Todd’s frequent indiscretions, continues to play the part with immaculate precision. When confronted with the brutal truth of him leaving her for a younger woman, Jodi will not accept defeat. What begins as a tragic dissolution of a marriage quickly spirals into a game of cat and mouse with calamitous stakes.

“The Silent Wife” will be director Adrian Lyne’s first feature since 2002’s “Unfaithful.” Lyne built a career on erotic thrillers like “Lolita” (1997), “Indecent Proposal,” “Fatal Attraction” and “Nine 1/2 Weeks.” 

Kidman has several other starring projects set to release soon, including “Queen of the Desert,” “The Family Fang” and the HBO miniseries “Big Little Lies.”
