She has already had fun crooning on the set of Moulin Rouge with Ewan McGregor, not to mention the single she recorded with Robbie Williams.

Now it seems Nicole Kidman is considering another big-screen singing role.

Reports surfacing from the US say Kidman is considering a role in a film called Nine, a musical loosely based on Federico Fellini's 8, which tells the story of a director and the women in his life.

Interestingly, if Kidman accepts the role she may appear in the cast alongside Penelope Cruz - who dated Tom Cruise after his marriage split from Kidman.

The film is already chock full of Oscar-winners: Javier Bardem has accepted the leading role, with Marion Cotillard also on the list.

The musical will be directed by Rob Marshall, who made Chicago with Catherine Zeta-Jones and Renee Zellweger. Kidman, who was in the school choir during her days at North Sydney Girls High School (something her mum Janelle has always been proud of) is said to be very interested in signing up for the all-singing extravaganza.
