Colin Firth is joining Nicole Kidman to star in Rowan Joffe's "Before I Go to Sleep," a thriller set up at Scott Free and Millennium Films. The film is based on Brit novelist S.J. Watson's book of the same name. Joffe adapted the screenplay, which centers on a woman (Kidman) with amnesia who wakes up each morning not know who she is; she keeps a journal to help try to reconstruct her memories, but dark truths emerge and she must question everyone around her. Firth will play her husband. Mark Strong and Anne-Marie Duff are also on board. It will shoot in London later this month.

Firth and Kidman also star in Jonathan Teplitzky's "The Railway Man," which is now in post and set for a release later this year.
