London: Oscar winner Nicole Kidman is reportedly planning to return back to stage.

The 44-year-old is in early negotiations to take the leading role in Terence Rattigan's "After the Dance" on the Broadway stage in either spring or autumn 2013, reports contactmusic.com.

If things will finalise, it would be the first time the Australian star will  appear in a New York theatre since David Hare's "The Blue Room", directed by Sam Mendes, in 1998.
