Cruise beats Devil
Boy, Tom Cruise and his C/W Productions are busy little bees lately. They're just snatching up properties right and left. I guess after the surprising success of THE OTHERS this summer (yet a complete shut-out at the Oscars nominations) left their bellies full and pockets fat. So now comes the proverbial spending spree. He just snatched up GHOST SOLDIERS and THE LOST REGIMENT and his latest optioned novel is CARTER BEATS THE DEVIL by Glen David Gold. This time we have the real-life tale of "Carter the Great," a magician from the early 1900s and the "intrigue, love life and magic" of his years. While it could change at any time, Cruise is not expected to star in the film.
