UMA THURMAN has landed a role in the forthcoming big screen adaptation of the ELOISE children’s stories.

The actress will play Nanny – a role made famous in two 2003 TV specials by Julie Andrews.

Eloise tells the tale of a six-year-old girl who lives in New York’s Plaza hotel with her nanny. She first appeared in a series of 1950s novels by Kay Thompson.

Thurman says, “I’m going to be in Eloise in Paris. I’m so excited. It’s a story I loved as a child. It’s great seeing that come to the screen. I’m doing that in August.”

The role of Eloise has yet to be cast, but it is rumoured Sir Bob Geldof’s adopted 11-year-old daughter Tiger Lily, the child of his late ex-wife Paula Yates and her late rocker boyfriend Michael Hutchence, is on a shortlist for the part.
