Doug Liman Talks Valerie Plame Biopic

Reveals identity of his leading lady.

by | February 14, 2008 | Comments

Doug Liman‘s latest project, the Hayden Christensen/Samuel L. Jackson sci-fi actioner Jumper, hasn’t even hit theaters yet — but he’s already talking about what’s next for him.

The director, set to direct Warner Bros.’ planned biopic about outed CIA operative Valerie Plame, has revealed who will play Plame (try saying that ten times fast) in his film. Ready? Read on:

“Nicole Kidman. She’s perfect if you’ve ever met Valerie. Nicole was supposed to play Jane Smith in ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith.’ We owe a movie together! That’s an unrequited thing between me and an actor where I fell in love with them for a role and never get to consummate it.”

Having never met Valerie Plame, we’re forced to take Liman at his word — and stand in awe of his way with an analogy. As MTV Movies points out in its exclusive report on the Kidman reveal, bringing Plame’s professional life to the big screen will be an iffy proposition, given the way her memoir was censored by the CIA. Liman isn’t worried:

“I have a really, really insane take on how to tell it. It’s so outrageous. Ultimately, I’d be doing something no one has ever done before. Therefore it’s automatically appealing to me. I’m just starting to explore whether [what I have in mind] is even possible to do.”

Something no one’s ever done before? Something that might even be impossible? What could Liman be talking about here? Let your imaginations run wild, RT faithful!
