Tom Cruise Tripling Down on Epic Sci-Fi Moviemaking
Remember when Tom Cruise’s career seemed to be flagging just a few years ago? Not so much anymore. The Cruister has some major movies coming out in the upcoming years, along with two big-budget sci-fi epics, Joseph Kosinski’s “Oblivion” and Doug Liman’s “All You Need is Kill” (I’m still surprise they haven’t changed that title yet, frankly). Now it sounds like he’s tripling down on his sci-fi offerings.
News has Cruise reuniting with his “Valkyrie” producer Mary Parent on a new sci-fi movie called “Our Name Is Adam”, based on an original spec script by T.S. Nowlin. No details about “Adam” is known at this point, but it is being called a sci-fi script, and just going purely by the title, I’m guessing robots, uprising, or some such.
This is Nowlin’s second major sci-fi sale, having also written “Agent 13″, which is scheduled to be made with Charlize Theron starring and Rupert Wyatt (“Rise of the Planet of the Apes”) directing.
