Kidman & Kinberg to Collaborate on a Lady Spy Flick

Statuesque star Nicole Kidman and successful screenwriter Simon Kinberg ("Mr. & Mrs. Smith," "X-Men: The Last Stand") aim to work together over Fox, and the project is presently being described as a female version of "The Bourne Identity." Kidman?

According to The Hollywood Reporter: "Nicole Kidman and writer Simon Kinberg are teaming on a spy thriller that was pre-emptively picked up by Regency Enterprises and 20th Century Fox. Kinberg will write the untitled project, while Kidman will star and produce via Fox-based Blueprint Films.

Story line details are being kept under wraps, but the film is described as being in the vein of "The Bourne Identity" but with a female protagonist. The project provides an opportunity for Kidman and Kinberg to finally work together. Kidman originally was attached to co-star alongside Brad Pitt in the Regency hit "Mr. & Mrs. Smith," which Kinberg wrote. She dropped out because of scheduling conflicts, paving the way for Angelina Jolie to topline."

Anyone out there buy Nicole Kidman as an action heroine? Me neither, really, but she’s so darn cute, I’d be more than willing to suspend some of that disbelief for a few hours.

As far as Mr. Kinberg is concerned, this is an impressive turnaround: Prior to doing a darn fine job on "Smith," he was known mainly as "the new kid who wrote "xXx: State of the Union" … who also did uncredited script-work on "Catwoman" and "Fantastic Four."
