Cruise declares War
Tom Cruise's production company, Cruise/Wagner, will produce a new feature film version of THE WAR OF THE WORLDS along with Paramount distributing. While no deal is signed yet, Paramount execs are hoping they can convince Cruise to star. The novel by HG Wells follows a seemingly unstoppable martian attack by Earth and was perhaps made most famous by Orson Welles' radio broadcast in 1938 that stirred nationwide panic. Cruise has MINORITY REPORT in theaters this June and begins work on THE LAST SAMURAI this fall.
