Liane Moriarty, who is a No. 1 New York Times bestselling author, told The Hollywood Reporter that she was thrilled to work with Nicole, Per and Bruna. "They are such talented, passionate people and I have no doubt that whatever they do with my Nine Perfect Strangers, it will be brilliant. I’m honored by their faith in this book — even before I’d written ‘the end’ they believed in it, and I just feel very lucky to have had them come into my life.” she said.

Nine Perfect Strangers revolves around a remote health resort where a group of people are gathered for a reboot on life and will be releasing on 6 November. The protagonist, Frances Welty will be played by Kidman who will essay the role of a former best-selling romantic novelist mending a broken heart.
