Trivia The Reader

Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard, Naomi Watts and Juliette Binoche were considered for the role of Hanna in 'The Reader'. Sydney Pollack and Anthony Minghella, producers of 'The Reader', died before the the movie ended. The Academy made an exception and allowed to nominate more than three producers. Stephen Daldry wanted Kate Winslet in the first place, but she couldn't work it out due to her schedule with 'Revolutionary Road'. They tried with Nicole Kidman, but she was busy with 'Australia', so they decided to wait for her. When Kidman, finished, she couldn't do it because of her pregnancy. They had been waiting for so long that Kate Winslet became available.
