Nicole Kidman Is a 'Wonder' Woman
'The Golden Compass' star will also produce
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the project is based on a pitch by Kinberg and their desired is "to create a movie that will be to 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' what the 'Bourne' movies are to James Bond movies: a character-driven, treasure-hunting thriller."
Kinberg will get to work on the script this fall.
In addition to starring, Kidman would also produce along with Laurence Mark.
Kidman and Kinberg have attempted to work together on several occasions without a movie to show for it. The Oscar-winning actress was originally set to star in the writer's "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" before dropping out. They then set up a spy thriller at FOX, but that project never came together.
Last seen in "Margot at the Wedding" and "The Golden Compass," Kidman has Baz Lurmann's "Australia" set for release in November.
