Nicole Kidman Globe-Trotting for 'The Eighth Wonder'


Nicole Kidman


The Academy Award-winning actress leaps from romantic drama 'Australia' to a new action adventure project taking the part of its star and producer.

"Australia" star Nicole Kidman is moving on with a new film project, "The Eighth Wonder (2010)". The 41-year-old has been reported to be attached to star as well as produce the action adventure movie from "Mr and Mrs Smith" screenwriter Simon Kinberg. Still, what character Kidman will be portraying is yet to be shared out.

Though much details of the storyline is closely guarded, it is said that the story will resolve around an archaeological discovery that sets off a globe-spanning race. Kinberg who is also touted to direct the movie is said to pen the script in fall. On the film itself, The Hollywood Reporter (THR) described that the film produced also by Laurence Mark is aimed to be "a character-driven, treasure-hunting thriller".

THR also noted that Kidman and Kinberg supposedly should team up years ago when the Hollywood actress was set to topline "Mr and Mrs Smith" written by the scribe. However, due to Kidman's scheduling conflicts, she has to back out from it. They had since been looking for another project to work on together.

Putting "Wonder" aside, Kidman will next be seen in epic drama "Australia". Co-starring Hugh Jackman under the direction of Baz Luhrmann, she is portraying an English aristocrat who is forced to join forces with a rugged cattle drover in a journey across hundreds of miles of the continent's unforgiving terrain to save the land she inherited. The flick's release date has been pushed back two weeks and now slated for November 26 release.
