More pulp style adventure on the way people!

Over at Hollywood Reporter there’s a story on a new adventure movie that has been picked up by Twentieth Century Fox and starring Nicole Kidman. There isn’t a lot to go on story wise as it’s early days at the moment. One of the quotes that raised an eyebrow is

The goal is to create a movie that will be to “Raiders of the Lost Ark” what the “Bourne” movies are to James Bond movies: a character-driven, treasure-hunting thriller. 

Hmmm…those are some big words as yes there were some fantastical elements to Raiders of the Lost Ark but I actually thought Raiders was a character-driven, treasure-hunting thriller (ok action adventure then). That’s why so many other movies that tried to emulate what Raiders had didn’t work as well as they didn’t have such an interesting and flawed a character at the center as Indiana Jones.

I’m interested in any project that tackles this genre so I’ll be following this project with a lot of interest.
