Aaron Eckhart in Rabbit Hole

So I suppose the “news” part of this announcement from Variety is that Aaron Eckhart is in talks (nothing signed yet) to co-star with Nicole Kidman in Rabbit Hole – an adaptation of the David Lindsay-Abaire play.

I admit to knowing nothing about the play, so if anyone out there knows something, educate me.

The real news that I see is a dramatic cultural shift. Aaron Eckhart has officially surpassed Nicole Kidman in cultural importance as his name appears in bold, bold text while hers is relegated to the sub-headline as an afterthought. He’s the headline. She’s a story detail. The 1990s are officially over.

The film itself focuses on a married couple who lose a young child in an accident and have to rebuild. Variety actually uses the phrase “redemptive journey” which makes me make the same face I make during a prostate exam that I haven’t studied for.

What do you think? Too much information?
