Nicole Kidman Will Rescue Elephants In Biopic My Wild Life

2 November 2011 7:45 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The last time we reported on a planned biopic of elephant conservationist Daphne Sheldrick, it was the project's former writer and director Nick Cassavetes suing New Line over what he called broken promises for him to write and direct the film. Cassavetes is most definitely still not involved, but the movie, now retitled My Wild Life, is finally ready to get made. THR reports that Nicole Kidman is attached to star as Sheldrick, with Philip Noyce, most recently of the Angelina Jolie action vehicle Salt, set to direct. The script is written by Jeff Stockwell, most recently behind Bridge to Terabithia and also an oddly similar sounding project Wilder Days. Ok, that movie is actually similar at all-- it stars Peter Falk, Tim Daly and a very young Josh Hutcherson, if you can believe it-- but there will probably be IMDb confusion about it anyway.

A decade later and it's now safe to say that the prediction has come true with one of the trio moving to stage, the other sticking with the big screen and the last moving into modelling. Now, it is time to meet the young actors and actresses who have taken their rightful place as the new rising stars. Some have already created a »

Peter Falk obituary

Us actor whose success as the scruffy TV detective Columbo was complemented by a wide range of stage and screen roles

Show-business history records that the American actor Peter Falk, who has died aged 83, made his stage debut the year before he left high school, presciently cast as a detective. Despite the 17-year-old's fleeting success, he had no thoughts of pursuing acting as a career – if only because tough kids from the Bronx considered it an unsuitable job for a man. Just 24 years later, Falk made his first television appearance as the scruffy detective, Columbo, not only becoming the highest paid actor on television – commanding $500,000 an episode during the 1970s – but also the most famous.

Inevitably the lieutenant dedicated to unravelling the villainy of the wealthy and glamorous dominated his career, although – unlike some actors – he escaped the straitjacket, or in his case shabby raincoat, of typecasting. In addition to stage work, »
