Nicole Kidman to Star in the ‘Eighth Wonder’

Nicole Kidman is attached to star in The Eighth Wonder, an action-adventure film from Simon Kinberg that 20th Century Fox has picked up. Kidman will also produce the film whose plot details are being kept under wraps, says The Hollywood Reporter.

However, it is known that the story centers on an archeological discovery that sets off a globe-spanning race.

The goal, says The Reporter, 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 write the script in the fall. He recently handled rewrite duties on Night at the Museum 2 and Sherlock Holmes.

Kidman will next be seen in Baz Luhrmann epic, Australia, which opens Nov. 26.
