Nicole Kidman has been cast to portray U.S. newswoman Gretchen Carlson in a new film about late Fox News founder Roger Ailes.
The 'Big Little Lies' star will play Carlson in 'Fair and Balanced', which is being directed by filmmaker Jay Roach.
Kidman will star alongside Charlize Theron, who is portraying U.S. lawyer-turned-TV-host Megyn Kelly, in the drama.
Ailes, who was Chairman and CEO of Fox News and Fox Television Stations, was forced to resign in 2016 when he became the subject of several sexual misconduct allegations, which included accusations made by Gretchen and Megyn.
Following his fall from grace at Fox, the media mogul went on to became an adviser to the Donald Trump campaign, where he assisted with debate preparation, before passing away in 2017.
Meanwhile, Roach's film is not the only project focused on Ailes currently in the works.
Russell Crowe will also portray the late media boss TV movie 'The Loudest Voice in the Room', which will be based on Gabriel Sherman's bestselling book of the same name.
