Tom Cruise to take on politics and scandal in new film

04.22.2011

We haven't seen much from Tom Cruise  recently, but we're about to as MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL and ROCK OF AGES are on the way.

But add one more to that upcoming list, as Cruise is set to star in a untitled film where he plays a disgraced politician returning home to find himself.

It's based on a pitch from CRAZY, STUPID LOVE's Dan Fogleman, and Warner Bros. just won the bidding war for the project.

The last time Cruise tried politics, it was LIONS FOR LAMBS, a movie that quite honestly I never heard word one about when it was released. Any good?

I can easily see Cruise as a charming politician, and one that resembles him with a scandal to boot would be John Edwards, the democrat who not only cheated with his wife, but did so when she had cancer, and had a love child in the process. No word on what Cruise's scandal will be, but it's hard to top that!

Extra Tidbit: Sure, he's probably insane, but the man makes damn good movies!

Correction: "Sure, he's probably insane, but the man MADE damn good movies!" Past tense. The guy is so far off his nut that it has effected his game... meaning he's done. Lions for Lambs is a crap film delivering an asinine liberal message. It bombed for a reason.

Lions for Lambs was a disappointment but it's certainly wasn't Cruise's fault. His performance was fine. It was mostly the script that was the problem. This movie sounds promising. Looking forward to it.

I agree with DjG, Lions for Lambs was a decent movie with a fine performance by Cruise. It did seem a bit preachy and slow, which I contribute to Redford's direction. Redford isn't a bad director, but hasn't really made anything I would consider "great" either, one reson I'm on the fence about seeing the Conspirator.

Lions for Lambs was good and had a great message. Cruise was pitch perfect as a delusional politician with a greedy agenda. A lot of Hollywood A-listers have some great opinions on politics like Matt Damon but don't speak out as much as I'd like them to.

Sounds good. About time he gets some possible Oscar worthy roles back. Tidbit: If I was Cruise, I'd probably be acting the same way, more power to him.
