Kidman signs up for Dusty movie gig

Hollywood heavyweight Nicole Kidman has been signed up to star as songstress Dusty Springfield in a film of her life.

Although the project is yet to be given a title, it will see the ex-wife of Tom Cruise team up once again with Michael Cunningham, the Pulitzer-prize winning writer of The Hours.

Speaking at the Museum of Natural History in New York City, the author said Springfield is "clearly going into history with the Beatles and the Rolling Stones", New York Magazine reports.

As well as starring as the British music legend, Moulin Rouge star Nicole will produce the feature through her Blossom Films company.

Dubbed the White Queen of Soul, Dusty's success was overshadowed by her problems with drugs and alcohol, as well as her struggles with mental illness.

Her record sales experienced a resurgence after Quentin Tarantino used Son of a Preacher Man on the soundtrack for Pulp Fiction.

Diagnosed with breast cancer in 1995 and succumbing to it four years later, Dusty has since been credited as an influence and inspiration for current chart stars Amy Winehouse, Duffy and Adele.
