Nicole Kidman and Antonio Banderas have joined the cast of A24‘s erotic thriller “Babygirl.”
“Bodies Bodies Bodies” filmmaker Halina Reijn is writing and directing the movie, which examines power dynamics and sexuality. It tells the story of a powerful CEO (Kidman) who begins an illicit affair with a much-younger, charismatic intern (Harris Dickinson).
Sophie Wilde (“Talk to Me”) and Jean Reno (“The Big Blue”) round out the cast. It’s scheduled to film this December in New York.
“Babygirl” marks the second collaboration between A24 and Reijn after her 2022 satirical slasher “Bodies Bodies Bodies,” an indie box office winner led by Amandla Stenberg, Maria Bakalova, Rachel Sennott and Pete Davidson. A24 also acquired Reijn’s directorial debut, “Instinct.”
David Hinojosa of 2AM will produce alongside Reijn of Man Up Film and A24, who is financing the project. Julia Oh, Zach Nutman and Christine D’Souza Gelb of 2AM will serve as executive producers.
