    In May, it was reported that Nicole Kidman, David E. Kelley and some more of the team that brought us Big Little Lies would be adapting Liane Moriarty’s 2018 book “Nine Perfect Strangers” into a limited series for Hulu. Today, Deadline announced that Melissa McCarthy would be joining the production as an actor and as an executive producer.

    Nine Perfect Strangers the series takes place at a boutique health-and-wellness resort that promises healing and transformation as nine stressed city dwellers try to get on a path to a better way of living. Watching over them during this ten-day retreat is the resort’s director Masha (played by Kidman), a woman on a mission to reinvigorate their tired minds and bodies. McCarthy will play Francis, one of the nine ‘perfect’ strangers.”

    Nicole Kidman works more than any actress in Hollywood. Is this before or after her Amazon team up with Lulu Wang?

    Nicole Kidman is quickly becoming the new Meryl Streep. Every part of a certain age seems to be offered to her first.

    I believe the Expatriate she is only producing . I think that’s what she said in an interview. And it’s not that she is offered every role. She reads and finds role for herself and produces them.
    While reading book, I Pictured Ann Down in role. But Melissa Mcarthy is good choice and basically Colead with Nicole Kidman role. Excited to see who else they cast. Since , the roles are pretty good, I wouldn’t be surprised if cast ends up great.

    I was really hoping this was a mashup of “Nine” and “Perfect Strangers.” Sadly it’s based on a book so I won’t hear Larry say “Lie Balki. Lie for Italia!”

    Since you read the book, who would be your dream castings?

    I personally found the book to be very disappointing, and found that not only was the story not that interesting but the characters were just caricatures of people.
    Hopefully this will be like Big Little Lies, where the miniseries completely elevates the material. Lets just hope that they can also build a good ensemble of actors and have some decent writers.
    I’m also exciting to see what Nicole’s Russian accent sounds like and whether or not she will be able to pull it off.

    She can’t even do stay in an American accent and she’s been living in America for many decades now. I wouldn’t get my hopes up about a completely different accent.

    Is this a mystery? I am not getting a good sense of genre from the description.

    hmmm , only character that I dream cast while reading was Melissa McCarthy role. Which, I said before I had Ann Down in mind.

    Nicole Kidman character has an Asian male assistant. Forgot what country he was from

    There is a family , father, mother and daughter working thru an issue.

    A sports watcher slobbish guy “Jim Beluchi” typeish.

    the Instagram couple.

    The mystery is basically you don’t know why everyone is at resort.
