Nicole Kidman Colin Firth

It was just at the beginning of the month that Mark Strong joined Nicole Kidman in the upcoming thriller "Before I Go To Sleep," and now the actress is eyeing a recent co-star to work with her again.

According to THR, Kidman wants to reteam with her onscreen husband Colin Firth in the upcoming "The Railway Man" for "Before I Go To Sleep," where he would once again take the husband role. Stay on your toes Keith Urban! Based on S.J. Watson’s bestselling book, and set to be directed by Rowan Joffe ("Brighton Rock"), the thriller follows a woman (Kidman) who wakes up each morning with no memory, with her husband (Firth's role) telling her that she's suffered a trauma and needs to stay at home. One day, she sneaks off to a doctor (Strong) who gives her a recorder and tells her to play back her thoughts to help piece things together. What she discovers is that her husband....may not be her husband at all.

Sounds a bit pulpy, but also potentially great if Kidman can rope in Firth. Scheduling and all that kind of stuff probably needs to be sorted, but we'll likely know soon as filming is tentatively scheduled for early next year.
