Nicole Kidman and Charlize Theron to Play Married Couple in The Danish Girl

Nicole KidmanCharlize Theron

Oscar-winning actresses and Charlize Theron will soon be giving the Academy a lot to talk about.

In The Danish Girl, the women will join forces to play a married couple from the 1920’s. Kidman, will take on the role of Einar Wegener, a Danish man who eventually became the world’s first post-op transsexual. Theron would star as Greta Wegener, Einar’s wife.

The screenplay, which was adapted David Ebershoff’s best-selling book, is based on the real-life story of two artists who fooled the public with their popular art. Although Greta typically painted females, Einar filled in for her one of her absent models one day. This event led to Einar’s later adoption of women’s clothing…and a woman’s body.

No release date has yet been announced for the indie film.
