Academy Award nominee Margot Robbie and Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman are about to hit the big screens again alongside Academy Award winner Charlize Theron, in a retelling of some real life drama within the Fox News Empire.
Charlize and Nicole both play real life Fox News women - Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, and veteran journalist Gretchen Carlson - who sued former Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Alies for sexual harassment.
Margot will be portraying a fictional associate producer.
The synopsis for the film is short and sweet, but is enough to have us reeled in:
“A few women decide to take on Fox News boss Roger Ailes and the toxic male culture he presided over at the network.”
A teaser for the film has dropped, showing all the women in a very awkward and tense elevator interaction that we can’t wait to find out the truth behind when the film drops!
BOMBSHELL also stars Emmy Award winner Kate McKinnon, Golden Globe nominee Connie Britton, Emmy Award winner Mark Duplass, Emmy Award nominee Rob Delaney, Golden Globe nominee Malcolm McDowell and Academy Award winner Allison Janney.
The film is already getting Oscar buzz for the cast alone, but what people can’t seem to get over is Charlize’s amazing transformation into Megyn and they’ve been taking to Twitter to share their shock and awe.
Bombshell is set to hit theatres in January, 2020.
