Kidman replacing Watts in movie?

Nicole Kidman could be set for a role in Queen Of The Desert

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.
