Date: 27th January 2001
Actress NICOLE KIDMAN has been forced to drop out of her new action-thriller movie THE PANIC because of a recurring knee injury.
Kidman, who sustained several injuries on the set of her last film, the all-dancing, all-singing MOULIN ROUGE star was advised by her doctors not to go ahead with the physically demanding role, which she started shooting on 8 January (01).
Now panicked producers of the movie, about a recently divorced woman and her daughter who are pursued around their home by intruders JARED LETO, FOREST WHITAKER and DWIGHT YOAKAM, are deciding whether to put the project on ice or recast her. (LE/HR/RGS)
