A true story movie, and Nicole Kidman is going to be the leading role. The movie is called James Tiptree Jr., and is about a female science fiction writer who would use a male pseudonym to break down genre gender obstacles. Basically Kidman will be acting like a man to get closer, to well, men.
Alice Bradley Sheldon is the real name of the woman who acted like a man from 1967 well into the late 1970's, so that she could get closer to fellow male writers in attempts to get ideas for her books. Well known science fiction writers such as Philip K. Dick and Harlan Ellison were fooled by this woman, and it wasn't recently until she came out and told everyone she was in fact a woman.
Now I don't know about you, but I think Nicole Kidman will have a tough part playing as a man with her beautiful smooth skin and sexy figure.
