Australian beauty Nicole Kidman has been lined up to play LEONARDO DiCAPRIO's mother - even though she is just eight years older than him.

MAD MAX star Mel Gibson, 47, will play Leonardo's dad while pretty Nicole, 36, will be his mum in new movie ALEXANDER THE GREAT.

The $160 million (GBP100 million) epic will be directed by Moulin Rouge! creator Baz Luhrmann.
