The movie was due to star Kidman as Lili Elbe, the first person in the world to undergo a sex change, and Gwyneth Paltrow was initially signed up as the lead character's wife.
Paltrow pulled out, as did her replacement Charlize Theron, and the project, backed by Kidman's Blossom Films company, was due to move forward with Weisz in the role.

Filming was due to begin in Germany last month (Sep11), but the movie has now reportedly been put on hold following the departure of Weisz and director Lasse Hallstrom.
A source tells the Mail on Sunday, "Nicole initially approached GwynethPaltrow to play the artist's wife and fellow artist Gerda Gottlieb, but she was too busy. Charlize Theron then took the role but had to pull out because of scheduling conflicts. "Rachel Weisz signed up last year but now she's pulled out and the whole production has been thrown into disarray.
Nicole is still determined tomake this film, so she's gone back to the drawing board".
