This has to be a tough blow to Nicole Kidman’s ego, especially after whatever it is she’s just done to her face. Selena Gomez has just been cast in the lead role of the film adaptation of Headhunters by Jules Bass. The role was originally promised to Nicole back in 2005 (five years ago!) when the film was first in development. Due to some changes in the film’s tone, they decided to bring in Selena instead.
Another reason Selena’s a better pick? She’s cheaper. Selena will cost literally millions less to employ and her popularity is high enough that the studio can still make some money off of her. Nicole Kidman was named by Forbes as one of Hollywood’s most overpaid celebrities, so I guess you do the math.
