Nicole Kidman might be set to replace her best friend Naomi Watts in upcoming film Queen Of The Desert.

Naomi was tipped to star in the period drama about British writer, traveller, archaeologist and spy Gertrude Bell, but Deadline reports that she is exiting the film.

And it seems her fellow Aussie Nicole is now in talks to take over the part in Werner Herzog's movie.

It won't be the first casting switch, as earlier this year Jude Law left the project and was replaced by James Franco.

Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson also has a role in the movie.

Meanwhile, Naomi - whose new film Diana, Princess of Wales has been panned by critics - is in talks for new thriller Holland, Michigan.

The film will be directed by Oscar-winning documentarian Errol Morris.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
