THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — While typical of many films, getting everything to come together at the same time has eluded Nicole Kidman who is producing this transgender picture based on a true story about trans artist Lili Elbe. Ms. Kidman is to portray the role of the trans lead character.
Filming was supposed to have begun this summer in Germany, but for one reason or another many of the big stars and directors attached to the film had to drop out. Kidman is supposedly still attempting to get this picture made, but likely this severe setback means starting over again with the financing and the attachment of stars — we’re talking 6 months at the earliest, likely longer before production starts.
From wiki: Lili Elbe (1882 – September 1931) was a trans woman and one of the first identifiable recipients of male to female sex reassignment surgery. Elbe was born as a male in Denmark. Born as Einar Mogens Wegener, she identified as male for most of her life and was a successful artist with that name. After the surgeries, however, she took the name Lili Elbe.
I’m avoiding linking to tabloids, but here is info at IMDb which ought to be at least half factual:
