"Yes I will be in it. And Sandy will be in it. And that's that. There's a lot more to tell which is why we go, 'OK, this is kind of interesting now to be able to do this. We found a way in,' " said Kidman, 56. PEOPLE first reported that the actresses were in talks to star and produce the film on Monday, June 10.
