20th Century Fox has picked up “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” scribe Simon Kinberg’s action-adventure pitch “The Eighth Wonder” says Reuters.
The story centers on an archeological discovery that sets off a globe-spanning race. The aim is to be a grittier and more character-driven version of the Indiana Jones movies.
Nicole Kidman is attached to star and produce the project which will be penned this Fall. Kinberg and Kidman were previously set to work together on ‘Smith’ and then later an untitled spy thriller but both chances never came to fruition.
