Kidman 'signs up for action role'

Nicole Kidman is to produce and star in The Eighth Wonder, an action adventure based on an archaeological discovery, it has been reported.

The 20th Century Fox production will be written by Simon Kinberg, in whose 2005 action comedy Mr and Mrs Smith Kidman was once scheduled to appear.

Kidman will next be seen in Australia, an epic from director Baz Luhrmann.

The pair previously collaborated on Luhrmann's 2001 musical Moulin Rouge.
