Melbourne, Jan 9 (ANI): Kate Winslet will be stepping into Nicole Kidmans role in the post-WWII romantic drama The Reader after the Aussie Oscar winner dropped out following the news that she is pregnant.

And, the news comes straight from the author of the best-selling book on which the movie is being based.

Bernhard Schlink told German newspaper the Berliner Morgenpost that Winslet would now be playing the mysterious older woman who seduces a young man in postwar Germany.

“Kate Winslet fits the role wonderfully,” The Australian quoted him, as saying.

The movie, which sees actor Ralph Fiennes as the male lead, is to be filmed in New York and the Babelsberg studios outside Berlin. (ANI)
