Yes, Nicole Kidman will be playing Victoria Woodhull, if the film goes into production as planned. Tom Cruise bought the rights to Barbara Goldsmith's "Other Powers" as a gift for his wife. The movie was slated to come out this year, but I haven't heard any recent updates on their progress. As far as I know they haven't started filming.
It's difficult for me to conceive of anyone playing Victoria Woodhull. Vivian Leigh would've been a perfect choice during the golden age of Hollywood. I can't think of anyone today who could play the role to perfection. Casting an actress as Tennie C. Claflin would be easier. Drew Barrymore would be the ideal Tennie. Your thoughts on who would be the perfect Woodhull?
