Kidman film 'could be pulled'

Studio executives are reportedly considering scrapping a new film starring Nicole Kidman after being shocked by the near final cut of it.

The Daily Record quotes a US magazine's claims that executives at New Line Cinema think a scene in Birth where Kidman gets into a bath with a 10-year-old boy and kisses him are 'borderline disgusting' to watch.

The $50m film is about a woman who believes the boy is a reincarnation of her late husband.

PR companies who are supposed to be promoting it are reportedly already calling it a 'publicity nightmare'.
