Uma, Ulla. Ulla, Uma.

Earlier this month it was reported that scheduling conflicts forced Nicole Kidman to drop out of the planned movie adaptation of the Broadway adaptation of Mel Brooks' THE PRODUCERS. As reported at the time, the search for a A-list replacement began almost immediately. Charlize Theron was a candidate but her schedule shooting AEON FLUX seemed to conflict so the producers of PRODUCERS kept searching. According to the New York Post they have found they're woman. The paper reports that Uma Thurman has been cast as secretary Ulla in the film. Thurman, currently filming PRIME with Meryl Streep, would star alongside Broadway stars Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick and fellow newcomer Will Ferrell. Filming on THE PRODUCERS begins in New York in February before Lane and Broderick begin their Broadway stint in a revival of "The Odd Couple." Thurman, a Golden Globe nominee for her role in KILL BILL, VOL. 2, can be seen next in BE COOL opposite John Travolta.
