Among the many projects Phillip Noyce has been looking at since last summer's "Salt" -- which have included the time travel tale "Timeless," a remake of "Bloodsport" (!?) and more recently the sexual thriller "The Arrangement" -- lurking in the back has always been "My Wild Life." It first came on the radar at the end of 2010 as a possibility for the helmer, and then gained more traction this spring when Nicole Kidman began eyeing the lead role. Now it looks like it's going to leapfrog ahead of everything else to become Noyce and Kidman's next picture.

Having delivered a solid international triple again with the Angelina Jolie spy actioner "Salt," and a hit TV series with ABC's "Revenge," Australian helmer Phillip Noyce is back on top, but the director of "Dead Calm" and "Clear and Present Danger" hasn't gone as far as to pick a follow-up yet. He was linked to submarine thriller "Hunter Killer" before Antoine Fuqua took over, flirted with the drama "Our Wild Life," is attached to a remake of "Bloodsport" for some reason, and also eyed up the thriller "Above Suspicion," as well as putting his name to romance "Timeless," which landed a lead a couple of weeks back in the shape of Liam "Brother of Thor" Hemsworth.

With a big-time release date of December 21st, 2012, "Hunter Killer" was meant to be a very sharp quiver in Relativity Media's bow during the next holiday season. Alas, director Phillip Noyce has bowed from the project, according to Moviehole. Adapted from the Don Keith and George Wallace novel "Firing Point," the story centered on a renegade Russian admiral attempting a coup, and the American sub commander and Navy SEAL tasked with stopping him.

Director Phillip Noyce has always embodied the word "workmanlike." Not quiet an auteur, but not a faceless hack either, Noyce has succeeded in making above-average or at least financially successful studio fare like "Patriot Games," "Salt," "Clear And Present Danger" and "The Bone Collector." Every now and then he'll do a prestige pic like "The Quiet American" or "Rabbit Proof Fence" to mixed results. And while lately he's circled the time travel pic "Timeless," the thriller "Hunter Killer" and the true life nature conservancy story "Our Wild Life," we didn't think things were this bad.

Exclusive: There was talk of a sequel to the Angelina Jolie-led action spy flick, "Salt" -- as directed by Phillip Noyce -- almost as soon as the picture came out. Was "Salt" successful? The recently released DVD might help determine that final figure, but with a reported budget of $110 million (not including the $30-$40m in P&A), the film only grossed $118 million domestically. Bomb, right? Not quite. The overseas haul -- where Jolie is still a bigger draw -- amassed to a total just shy of $300 million. That's not too bad.

Have you ever had a fight with a significant other and never gotten the chance to address it? It looks like that premise is going to serve the basis for a movie.
