Cruise gets Grace

08.28.2009

Maggie Grace (TAKEN) has signed on to co-star with Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz in the upcoming spy thriller from director James Mangold. In the she'll star as the sister to Diaz's character who has been swept into a conspiracy by her blind date (Cruise) who turns out to be a super spy. It's an impressive bit of casting for Grace who struggled to find her place in Hollywood post-"Lost." She deserved much better than the terrible FOG remake a few years back and she's finally getting her due after TAKEN, which made over $220 million worldwide.

The film, formerly titled WICHITA, has long been on Cruise's potential to-do list and recently he chose it as his next project. What's odd is that he was attached to SALT (where he was eventually replaced by Angelina Jolie) but dropped out because the "super spy" aspect was too similar to MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE. But here he's back playing another "super spy," this time involved with a powerful battery that holds the key to an infinite power source. Frankly I would've rather seen Cruise and Denzel Washington face off in the David Cronenberg directed MATARESE CIRCLE but it looks like he may be off that project.

Extra Tidbit: Grace was reportedly in talks to star in X-MEN 3 as Kitty Pryde (a role that eventually went to Ellen Page).

whatever

I love lOST but she was the absolute worst actor/actress on the whole show and her body of work(or lack of) speaks for itself and her talent level. BTW how do you draw a conclusion of the success od Taken with her. She matters little to none in the success of that film or any film she will ever be in. Have you ever heard someone say "hey I want to see that new maggie whatersnames new movie"? Never bc nobody goes to movies to see her they went to Liam Neeson, not her. So please dont give her

So please dont give her credit like she did soemthing great just bc it made money.

She was only 24-25 when they shot Taken, to play the 17-year-old daughter, thats not that bad.
Dustin Hoffman was 37 when he shot Marathon Man, playing a student in his early 20's. Tell me about too old ...

She is much too old to have played the teenage daughter in Taken and her awkward running every time you see her pre-kidnapping is haunting
