Big Little Lies

According to Deadline, Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon have teamed up to produce and star in the film adaptation of the New York Times bestseller, Big Little Lies. The book follows the stories of three mothers, all of whom are at at a crossroads in their lives: Jane, the single mom with a dark past, Madeleine, the firecracker coping with her ex-husband and new wife, and Celeste, mother to two mischievous twin boys. The three end up becoming unlikely friends and help each other face the ugly truths of a small town, like school bullying, infidelity, and domestic violence. There’s no word on which of the characters Kidman and Witherspoon will take on or whom will play the third. Author Liane Moriarty is also reportedly on board the project as a producer.
