Kidman Snatches Lead in Invasion
2005-8-3 9:08:53
Nicole Kidman is in final negotiations to star in Invasion, a sci-fi thriller being directed by the German director of a recent controversial film about Adolf Hitler.

The story takes place after a mysterious epidemic alters the behavior of human beings, and follows a Washington psychiatrist (Kidman) who discovers that its origins are extraterrestrial. She must fight to protect her son, who may hold the key to stopping the invasion.

A late September shoot in Baltimore is being eyed. Oliver Hirschbiegel will direct. He shot the Academy Award-nominated German-language film Downfall, about Hitler's last days, which has grossed more than $87 million worldwide.

Invasion is neither a reimagining nor a remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. The project originated as a remake, but when writer David Kajganich turned in his take, Warner Bros. thought it had something fresh on its hands. It's a very insidious story about how the end of the world can come through science and disease and not through explosions, said producer Joel Silver.

For Kidman, Invasion would be a return to a genre she hasn't done since the ghost story The Others in 2001. She was most recently in theaters with Bewitched and The Interpreter.
