Cruise as Samurai

02.25.2002

Tom Cruise has agreed to star in THE LAST SAMURAI, a film set in the 19th Century that follows the systematic destruction of the samurai warriors by the Japanese government.  SAMURAI was written by John Logan (GLADIATOR) and follows an American colonel who travels to Japan to train the new troops of the Japanese emperor.  As the position of samurai becomes outdated they are destroyed - but not before our American hero learns a lesson about respect and honor from these warriors.  The project, in which Cruise will also produce, should be next on the actor's schedule since he has nothing inked in after MINORITY REPORT (which opens this summer).  SAMURAI will be directed by Ed Zwick, who directed GLORY and won an Academy Award for producing TRAFFIC.
