Kidman out of Producers

Nicole Kidman is dropping out of Mel Brooks theatrical adaptation of the Broadway adaptation of the 1968 Mel Brooks movie The Producers (yes, you read that right). She would have played the loopy Swedish secretary Ulla. The reason she departed the project is that she wouldn't have time to learn the intricate song and dance routines between the current shooting of Bewitched and her next project, Eucalyptus. The departure was amicable.
