Tom Cruise To Star In Oscar-Winning Director Alejandro G. Iñárritu's Next Movie - Report

This will be the first collaboration between the two.


Tom Cruise may have found his next project and it's looking like an untitled Alejandro G. Iñárritu film, Deadline reports. The project would mark Iñárritu's first English-language pic since the Oscar-winning The Revenant, which won Best Director (Iñárritu's second consecutive), and Leonardo DiCaprio's Best Actor award.

The film will be produced and directed by Iñárritu in addition to co-writing the script with Sabina Berman, as well as reuniting with Birdman collaborators, Alexander Dinelaris and Nicolas Giacobone. The project is also the first of hopefully many with Warner Bros. after it was announced he had joined the studio in a "strategic partnership" last month.

The idea behind the collaboration between Cruise and the Warner Bros. studio crew is to help develop brand-new and original movies and to bring those productions into theaters, not made for streaming. It would also break Cruise's career of being part of tentpole franchises.

In just the past ten years alone, he's done three Mission: Impossible movies, a failed franchise starter with 2017's The Mummy, a Reacher sequel, and Top Gun Maverick. The lone anomaly in that timespan is American Made. Even the fan-favorite Edge of Tomorrow is based on a manga.

There are no plot details available other than it being a new original story written by Iñárritu. Deadline continues with how Cruise "has been hungry to find that next project" and moved quickly to get a meeting with the director.
