You, Ma'am Are No Indiana Jones

There's nothing wrong with Nicole Kidman. Okay, there's long been speculation that she has an eating disorder, but otherwise, I'm sure she's a perfectly lovely person, and in many roles, a very talented actress. A very delicate, waif-ey, porcelain-skinned actress who can play any number of dramatic roles, but not one you'd expect to see in an action-adventure film unless she were the damsel-in-distress. (Yeah, like that Batman we're all pretending never happened.) So you can imagine my surprise when it was announced that she'd signed on to produce and star in The Eighth Wonder, an action-adventure pitch from Mr. & Mrs. Smith writer Simon Kinberg. The bit that took me by surprise? The project is described as centering 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."

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull kicked off the Cannes Film Festival with fan appreciation but tepid critical response.

Lucky for Harrison Ford, he doesn't read reviews anyway. But it will be hard for him to avoid all of the buzz about this one. After all, this time there aren't just negative reviews; there are news stories about the critical response and roundups of the bad reviews.
