Steven Shainberg is set to direct "Fur," which would mark his first feature since the quirky 2002 hit, "Secretary." "Secretary" scribe Erin Cressida Wilson is writing the "Fur" script, adapting Patricia Bosworth's book "Diane Arbus: A Biography."

Arbus, considered one of the greatest photographers of the 20th century, is known for her strange, often disturbing images. She committed suicide in 1971.

At one point last year, Samantha Morton was in negotiations for the role in the film, previously known as the untitled Diane Arbus project,

Kidman was set to co-star with Russell Crowe (news) in the Australian feature film adaptation of the book "Eucalyptus." But Fox Searchlight recently shut down the project amid script woes.

Kidman next will be seen in Columbia Pictures' "Bewitched," a feature film based on the popular 1960s sitcom of the same name. The Oscar-winning actress most recently was nominated for a Golden Globe this year for her work in "Birth."

Downey's recent credits include "Gothika," "Eros" and "The Singing Detective."
