The star, who is keen on breaking into acting, is in the frame to land role Idina Menzel made famous
NICOLE SCHERZINGER is on the verge of landing a schermazing new Hollywood role.
I can reveal the X Factor judge in talks to play the lead role of Elphaba in the Hollywood adaptation of hit musical Wicked.
The movie, which is being made by Universal, is due for release in December 2019 and bagging the much sought-after part would help Nicole establish herself as one of Tinsel Town’s biggest performers.
A source said: “Nicole has held early discussions with film bosses who think she’s perfect for the role of Elphaba.
“She’s been eyeing a career in acting for some time now, so playing the lead role in a such a popular musical would be a major coup.
“There’s still some way to go before a final decision but she’s very much in the frame for the job.”
Currently, no other cast-members have been announced for the production, although original Broadway star IDINA MENZEL has ruled herself out of reprising the role she originated in 2003.
The Frozen star believes she’s too old at the age of 45 – which is seven years older than Nicole.
