Nicole Kidman Replaces Rachel Weisz As Colin Firth's Wife In 'The Railway Man' – Just a day after she was noted to be lining up Rowan Joffe's psychological thriller "Before I Go To Sleep," Nicole Kidman has now replaced Rachel Weisz in Jonathan Teplitzky ("Burning Man") adaptation of Eric Lomax's Prisoner Of War tale "The Railway Man." According to Baz Bamigboye, Weisz has dropped out as she's apparently committed to reshoots on two of her gestating films, "Oz The Great And Powerful" and "The Bourne Legacy," which has opened the door for Kidman who'll take over the role of Patti Wallace, the wife of Andy Paterson. 8 years 4 weeks ago via jackiechan
