Nicole Kidman & Colin Farrell to star in Sofia Coppola’s remake of “Beguiled”

Colin Farrell is set to play a wounded solider and Kidman a headmistress at an all girl boarding school in the new remake of the 1971 classic “Beguiled”.The original 1971 movie starred Clint Eastwood and Geraldine Page in the main roles.

The civil war era drama based on the Thomas Cullinan novel has the wounded solider nursed back to health in an all girl’s boarding school although nervous at first the solider wins over the teachers and students alike causing tensions between the women who eventually turn on him.

The Coppola version will be a mix of a western and a drama and no doubt have her dreamy signature directing style. The cast includes some of Coppola’s previous actresses including Elle Fanning and Kirsten Dunst, and will also be produced by Roman Coppola.
