Hollywood Reporter: Kidman goes on a spy mission

Nicole Kidman will star in and produce an untitled spy thriller described as a female version of "The Bourne Identity"

Screenwriter Simon Kinberg's project, whose plot details are being kept under wraps, was pre-emptively picked up by Regency Enterprises and 20th Century Fox, the firms behind Kinberg's "Mr. & Mrs. Smith."

Kidman originally was attached to co-star in that film alongside Brad Pitt. She dropped out because of scheduling conflicts, paving the way for Angelina Jolie to join the cast and ignite a well publicized romance.

Essentially, Shane Black's The Long Kiss Goodnight (Geena Davis, Samuel L. Jackson) could be described as a female version of The Bourne Identity. The less Kidman's movie resembles it, the better.

Eh? You didn't like THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT? I've now lost all faith in your judgement.
