Nicole Kidman Replaces Rachel Weisz in 'The Railway Man' Starring Colin Firth

Nicole Kidman has replaced Rachel Weisz to play Colin Firth‘s wife in Jonathan Teplitzy‘s The Railway Man. Per Variety, the movie is “based on Eric Lomax‘s autobiography about his horrific experiences as a Japanese prisoner in World War II, and his remarkable reconciliation with one of his captors 30 years later.” Patty Lomax was instrumental in helping her husband deal with his psychological damage and brought him together with one of the Japanese officers who was responsible for his torture. I assume the reconciliation wasn’t along the lines of a “My bad, man—All good, bro” exchange. Jeremy Irvine (War Horse) will play the younger Lomax.

I think this is going to be a good story...a sad and hard to watch story in some ways but a good one. I like both Nicole and Rachel so it wouldn't matter which one played his wife but I think it will turn out to be a great movie.
