Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie are in negotiations to join Annapurna Pictures' "Fair and Balanced", a movie about disgraced Fox News Chief Roger Ailes. If a deal is settled, Nichole will be playing the role of former Fox news anchor Gretchen Carlson and Robbie will be seen playing the character of a fictional Fox News associate producer named Kayla Pospisil.

Kidman will be joining Charlize Theron, who will be playing the role of former Fox News host Megyn Kelly. Scripted by 'The Big Short' screenwriter Charles Randolph, the film will be directed by 'Trumbo' director Jay Roach.
