Kidman is Wonder...

Sep. 17, 2008by:

Before you continue to read this post, I will warn you that Nicole Kidman has NOT been cast as Wonder Woman. The headline was just a cheap tactic of mine to get you all to read a story about Nicole Kidman. Now that you're already here, why don't you stay a while? Take off your shoes, kick back, I've got some hot cocoa on the stove, let's chat!

Although she won't be playing the lasso-wielding wet dream, she has been cast instead in a film called THE EIGHTH WONDER, to be written by MR. AND MRS. SMITH scribe Simon Kinberg. Plot details are being kept under wraps, but we do know that he story centers on an archeological discovery that sets off a globe-spanning race. Sounds a little like NATIONAL TREASUE meets RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK to me, however Kinberg, known for his character-driven popcorn pieces, is sure to add some much-needed class to this tale of adventure and intrigue. I think it might actually be fun to watch Kidman jump off cliffs and arm-wrestle tigers. Can you please take your feet off my coffee table?
Extra Tidbit: Don't forget, Nic gets cozy with Wolverine this fall in Baz Lurhmann's WWII epic AUSTRALIA.

BAH

Just wanted to point out that after the first paragraph, I felt cheated and thusly didn't finish the story. I despise misleading headlines.

Cheap

I hate misleading titles. They do it on yahoo all the time. Wasting your time on articles you thought was about something else. I didn't even read the whole article cause I was mislead. You'd make a great politician!

Australia is going to be amazing. Just look at the trailer and tell me that's not some of the most gorgeous shit ever.

It will suck

Australlia has failure written all over it and forget the Wonder Woman movie, thats a pipe dream. Remeber how bad Tomb Raider did and Jolie is a much bigger draw and more believable actress for action then Kidman. $100 million dollar movie about an Amazon woman with an invisible plane a truth tellin lasso? Did anyone not see fantastic 4, you can only take silly, way over the top crap so far before people puke on it.

Overpaid

Theproducers must have not read the article where she is the most overpaid actress in the world. Name one big money making movie she has made as the lead? I dont know about you but when I think action I think Nicole Kidman. Can you say bomb? Stop trying to make guy movies with women its just as bad of an idea to have Rober DeNiro do a romantic comedy. Its a stupid idea.

For a sec there I was going "You got to be fuckin kidding!" Glad to see it was just a ploy. My eyes starting glazing over as the article went on though......something about Kidman.

I keep wondering...

What would've happened if Kidman hadn't dropped out of "Mr. and Mrs. Smith." Would the irritating title of "Brangelina" even exist?

HELLLLLLLLLLOOOOO LASS

I like this idea a bit more than seeing Kidman doing a movie which only ten people will see and enjoy(Fur,Margot at the Wedding,). I liked her in the Invasion/Interpreter.
As long as She starts looking a but like the girl we remembered in the day and doesn't take herself too serious I think this is the career bounce she needs. I also have a very sinking feeling about Australia.

Damn You Title!!!

Catchy title? Check. Proven Action/Comedy Writer? Check. An archeology discovery? Check. A globe-spanning race against time to find something important? Check. Nicole Kidman? Ch- Wait. What the Hell?

Seriously, this sounds pretty good, though I don't know about Nicole Kidman in it. Makes me think of Tomb Raider for some reason. And can you really say it's like National Treasure meets Raiders of the Lost Arc when National Treasure is just a bad rip-off of Raiders.

And though I don't think

And though I don't think Kidman would be great casting for WW, she's better than some of the rumors out there. Lindsay Lohan anyone?

Besides the whole [link] thing, would she really that bad of a choice for Wonder Woman?

...but this is a Kidman picture. So, no matter how great Kinberg's script, no matter how spectacular the supporting cast, no matter how sexy the Kidman (whom I love) the whole product will be bastardized and ruined by cowardly and greedy execs about 2 months before it's release date.
