Naomi Watts has snagged a couple of good post-bub roles.
The Australian beauty will reteam with her “Assassination of Richard Nixon” co-star Sean Penn for ”Fair Game,” the drama about the outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson, to be directed by “Bourne Identity” helmer Doug Liman.
Watts is also onboard Woody Allen’s latest. Freida Pinto (“Slumdog Millionaire”), Anthony Hopkins and Josh Brolin will also appear in the film.
“Fair Game” (not to be confused with the woeful Cindy Crawford/Billy Baldwin flick from a few years back) would see the still-in-negotiations Penn playing Ambassador Joseph Wilson. Wilson watched his wife’s CIA status become compromised after he wrote op-ed columns that accused the Bush Administration of manipulating intelligence about weapons of mass destruction to justify the invasion of Iraq.
