Welcome to the CIA, Nicole Kidman. MTV Movies Blog recently interviewed Jumper director Doug Liman, and he said that Nicole Kidman is set to play Valerie Plame, the spy whose cover was controversially blown by the government in 2003.
"Nicole Kidman," director Doug Liman revealed. "She's perfect if you've ever met Valerie. Nicole was supposed to play Jane Smith in Mr. and Mrs. Smith. We owe a movie together! That's an unrequited thing between me and an actor where I fell in love with them for a role and never get to consummate it."
The film will be based off of Plame's memoir, "Fair Game: My Life as a Spy, My Betrayal by the White House," which was heavily censored by the CIA, but Liman is apparently taking on a new approach that will get around government red tape.
"I have a really, really insane take on how to tell it. It's so outrageous," Liman enthused. "Ultimately, I'd be doing something no one has ever done before. Therefore it's automatically appealing to me. I'm just starting to explore whether [what I have in mind] is even possible to do."
A production schedule hasn't been announced for this film as of now.
