Cruise vs. Hitler

Tom Cruise recently acquired the rights to Bryan Singer's next film for his United Artists studio that he's trying to get off the ground. It turns out Cruise liked the project so much he's not just producing it, he's gonna star in it as well. Singer was able to convince Cruise to take a starring role in the still untitled WWII thriller. When we last spoke, little was known about the film but precious few details have leaked out. The film reportedly will follow German generals plotting an assassination attempt against Adolph Hitler at the height of his power. The script was written by Academy Award winner Christopher McQuarrie, Singer's collaborator from THE USUAL SUSPECTS. My favorite line from the announcement is that "United Artists has set Tom Cruise to star" in Singer's film. Considering that United Artists IS Tom Cruise, it's basically Tom Cruise setting himself to star in a film. "Hey Tom the Actor? It's me, Tom the Studio Chief. Would you like to star in this Bryan Singer movie? You would? Great!" Singer's WWII film is UA's second production and the second straight that Cruise has opted to star in. The first, LIONS FOR LAMBS, is set for release on November 9th and co-stars Robert Redford and Meryl Streep.

Extra Tidbit: The movie will be based on a real assassination plot against Hitler, which you can read more about here.

first....stock, that was hilarious

moving on, the film does sound good despite my current cruise ban, so I'll probably check it out. I've heard of the plot in real life, and think it would translate great to film.

Curise a German?

I'll see this movie because I like Bryan Singer and Tom Cruise is a decent actor no matter how crazy he is in real life. But will Cruise me playing a German? I don't know about that, Tom Cruise with a German accent might throw me off a lil'.

Tom's a little coocoo in real life, but he's a fine actor. This sounds really good to me. But I wish that Singer would finally make the Mayor of Castro Street.

I hope Tom plays Hitler. It would be perfect casting. Little guy, all pumped up on himself, with lots of little fan-boy sycophants, into wierd non-religion, prone to jumping up and down with semi-crazed looks on his face. Just put a little mustache on him. I'm there.

Maaan

You should know that the General who made this attempt was STAUFFENBERG. It remained an attempt (bomb) because Hitlers table made of oak saved his life. Too bad.
