Nicole Kidman is a Treasure Hunter Now

September 17, 2008


The treasure-hunting adventurer complexion average is about to get about three shades paler. Nicole Kidman is signed to star as some kind of character-driven Indiana Jones-type. Yeesh:

[20th Century Fox] has picked up "The Eighth Wonder," an action-adventure pitch from [Simon] Kinberg, with Kidman attached to star and produce.

Details of the plot are being kept under wraps, but the story centers on an archeological discovery that sets off a globe-spanning race. The goal 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.

Yeah, alright. If Nicolas Cage can run around hunting for a map tattooed on a scrap of Thomas Jefferson's back skin or whatever, Nicole Kidman might as well go for it too. That will be our new standard. All of our archaeological adventurers will be composed of mostly forehead, and the new faces of treasure hunting will stretch ten inches above the brow line, and that's fine.
