    The film opportunity that lurred Bullock back to the big screen? Director Stephen Daldry’s adaptation of a href=”http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/12/16/extremely-loud-and-incredly-close-premiere_n_1154579.html” target=”_hplink”"Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.”/a

Kidman, who a href=”http://news.bbc.co.uk/onthisday/hi/dates/stories/august/8/newsid_2492000/2492903.stm” target=”_hplink”suffered a miscarriage/a shortly after her split from Cruise, said that the opportunity to play the suicidal novelist came at just the right time.
