Nicole Kidman to play Ernest Hemingway`s lover in bio-pic

London: Her turn as writer Virginia Woolf won her an Oscar and now Nicole Kidman is all set to play author Ernest Hemingway`s love interest in a bio-pic.

The Australian actress is also producing the movie `Hemingway and Gellhorn`, about the love affair between the `Farwell To Arms` author and war correspondent Martha Gellhorn.

The 45-year-old actress will be paired opposite Clive Owen who will play the literary icon in the film directed by Philip Kaufman, reported Daily Mail online.

"It has long been a dream to make a film about the two lovers. She was such a fascinating woman and he was a hell of a man," said Kidman.

Gellhorn was one of the first female war correspondents and famously covered the Spanish Civil War and conflicts in Central America. She was married to Hemingway, but their volatile union was brief.

Meanwhile the actress` two-year-old daughter Sunday Rose is keeping her and husband, country singer Keith Urban, busy.

"She`s now two years and two-months old, is walking and talking. She`s a real live-wire. It`s not the Terrible Twos time, it`s the Good Twos time. She`s into everything and wants to know about everything," said Kidman.
