Nicole Kidman’s ‘Rabbit Hole’ groomed by Lionsgate for Oscar run

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The Oscar race just got a little more crowded.

Lionsgate has snared distribution rights to John Cameron Mitchell’s drama “Rabbit Hole,” based on a David Lindsay-Abaire play, and intends to release it before Christmas, says The Wrap.

It’s the studios intention, according to the piece, to push the film for Best Picture and Nicole Kidman for Best Actress.

Kidman and Aaron Eckhart play a happily married couple who must grieve the loss of their young son in a car accident. Kidman’s role has awards history. Cynthia Nixon of “Sex and the City” fame won a Tony when she starred in a stage version of “Rabbit Hole” in 2007.

Lionsgate also has had success in the Oscar race, pushing “Precious” last season and Paul Haggis’ Best Picture-winning “Crash” a few years back.
