What do you do when your husband leaves you for a younger woman? You fight the little homewrecker, right? But what if she's professionally trained in martial arts? That appears to be the question that spawned Wife vs. Ninja, a high-concept idea just bought by DreamWorks, according to Variety.

The pitch comes from Michael Besman, producer of About Schmidt and The Opposite of Sex, and specifically involves a woman whose scientist hubby ditches the married life to be with his intern. But the wife learns the young woman is actually a ninja assassin on a mission to steal the husband's secret formula for a new hair tonic or burger sauce, or whatever it is he's working on. So, if the title is any indication, the wife then fights the girlfriend for the life and love of her undeserving man.
