Jerry Bruckheimer posted a photo with Tom and mentions Top Gun 2 discussion!


From Variety:

Bruckheimer produced “Top Gun,” the Oscar-winning 1986 action drama that starred Cruise as young Navy pilot Lt. Pete “Maverick” Mitchell.

Development of “Top Gun 2” was confirmed last year by Skydance CEO David Ellison, who also shared some details about the plot.

“It is very much a world we live in today where it’s drone technology and fifth generation fighters… It’s really exploring the end of an era of dogfighting and fighter pilots and what that culture is today,” said Ellison at a “Terminator Genisys” press junket last June. The exec also hinted that Cruise would be returning to reprise his role as Maverick. “There is an amazing role for Maverick in the movie, and there is no ‘Top Gun’ without Maverick, and it is going to be Maverick playing Maverick,” Ellison said.

Val Kilmer, who played Lt. Tom “Iceman” Kazanski in the original, announced on Facebook in November that he was offered a role in the sequel as well, adding, “not often you get to say ‘yes’ without reading the script.”

New project for Tom! A Mummy reboot! And I’ll catch up on pics soon!

Now that Tom Cruise has officially signed on, Universal has set a new release date for its reboot of “The Mummy”: the film will bow on June 9, 2017.

Sofia Boutella is on board to play the classic monster with Alex Kurtzman directing.

Pic was originally set to bow on Mar. 24, 2017.

The studio tapped Kurtzman and Chris Morgan last summer to help develop a universe for Universal in which its classic monster movie library is front and center. Kurtzman is also on board to direct and will produce alongside Morgan as well as Sean Daniel.

Jon Spaihts is penning the script. Plot details are vague other than it will be set in present day, unlike the previous three installments starring Brendan Fraser.

Cruise isn’t expected to produce, but he will play a major part in development. Characters from the monster universe films are expected to crop up in each other’s installments before culminating in an “Avengers”-style tie-in film.

Universal’s executive VP of production Jon Mone and VP of development Jay Polidoro will oversee the project for the studio.

Tom Cruise in Talks to Star in ‘The Mummy’ Reboot

Possible new project for Tom! Via Variety:

Tom Cruise is in talks to star in Universal’s “The Mummy” reboot, helping to launch Universal’s new era of monster films, sources tell Variety.

The studio tapped Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan last summer to help develop a universe for Universal where its classic monster movie library is front and center. Kurtzman is also on board to direct and will produce alongside Morgan. Universal is not commenting on casting speculation regarding the project.

Universal’s executive VP of production Jon Mone and director of development Jay Polidoro will oversee the project for the studio.

Cruise is currently filming “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.” Cruise was eyeing a reunion with Doug Liman on the space adventure “Luna Park,” but with Liman directing “Gambit” in the spring, Cruise’s schedule had an opening before he jumped into prep for “Mission: Impossible 6,” which shoots next August.

VARIETY EXCLUSIVE. Mission: Impossible 6 may have found it’s director: Christopher McQuarrie.

Following the massive success of “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation,” Paramount and Skydance are hoping to stay in business with writer-director Christopher McQuarrie. According to sources close to the situation, McQuarrie will return to write “Mission: Impossible 6,” as well as possibly direct the next installment.

The studio and reps for McQuarrie have declined to comment, but several sources with knowledge of the situation say talks are progressing towards a deal being closed, with one insider saying that the studio plans to get production up and running by next August.

Tom Cruise is set to star with the studio also holding an option for Rebecca Ferguson to reprise her “Rogue Nation” role of Ilsa Faust. Cruise is currently filming “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back” in New Orleans. Following the success of “Rogue Nation,” Paramount made it clear they wanted to move fast to get the next installment of the popular “M:I” franchise into production sometime next year.

If McQuarrie’s deal closes, it would mark a major milestone for the franchise, which has never had a director helm more than one installment.

While he has plenty in development, McQuarrie has nothing pressing on his slate that would impede him from working on an “M:I 6” script and prepping the film for a summer 2016 shoot.

Tom Cruise starts Jack Reacher 2

Tom has started shooting Jack Reacher 2, which now has a title: Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

Tom Cruise has begun filming the sequel to Jack Reacher, it’s been confirmed.

Paramount and Skydance Entertainment have also announced that the title of the new movie is no longer Jack Reacher 2. Rather, it’s going by the name Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.

That confirms which of Lee Child’s source novels the movie is based on (the 18th in the series of books to date).

Edward Zwick, who previously directed Tom Cruise in The Last Samurai, is directing this one. Starring alongside Cruise are Cobie Smulders, Aldis Hodge, Patrick Heusinger, Austin Hebert and Danika Yorah.

Furthermore, the film also has its release date already. Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is set to arrive in cinemas on October 21st 2016.

One more project for Tom, via Variety:

After saving the world from aliens and fighting the cartels, Tom Cruise and Doug Liman may be headed to outer space in the director’s long-in-the-works sci-fi pic.

Sources tell Variety that Cruise is joining Liman to develop sci-fi action pic “Luna Park” with an eye to star in the film for Paramount. It’s still early in the process and could go one way or the other depending on how the latest draft of the script comes out, but sources say this is a good sign for the project that had been in development limbo.

This has been a passion project of Liman’s for some time; it was prepared to move forward in 2011 with thesps like Chris Evans and Andrew Garfield circling leading roles. A greenlight had been given by Paramount, but the studio halted production after co-financier Skydance Pictures bailed on it because of a budget that was surpassing $100 million.

It’s unknown whether Skydance and Paramount still have a part to play with the film but given the relationship both companies have with Cruise following the success of “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” and his upcoming sequel to “Jack Reacher,” signs are pointing to the studio getting behind the project yet again.

The plot revolves around a group of renegade employees who venture to the moon to steal an energy source.

When production would begin is still in question, as Cruise is about to start production on “Jack Reacher 2” and is expected to shoot another “Mission: Impossible” pic sometime next year.

Cruise is very particular about the directors he works with and looks to have become very comfortable with Liman after shooting “Edge of Tomorrow” for Warner Bros., which grossed more than $350 million worldwide, and the upcoming drug thriller “Mena,” which bows in January.

This weekend, Tom Cruise along with Christopher McQuarrie and Rebecca Ferguson were in China promoting Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation:

Tom Cruise meets with Medellin mayor

Tom Cruise is in Colombia to film Mena and he met with Medellin’s mayor:


Hollywood star Tom Cruise met with the mayor of Colombia’s second largest city, Medellin, to discuss the filming of “Mena,” a film about Pablo Escobar.

“It was a friendly and productive meeting that lasted more than an hour,” Mayor Anibal Gaviria said, adding that Medellin Film Commission members and Dynamo Producciones executive Andres Calderon also participated in the gathering.

Cruise plans to “spend a few more days” in Medellin to “get some work done on the shooting” of “Mena,” the mayor said.

The 53-year-old actor thanked officials for their support and said he felt “comfortable” in the city, Gaviria said.

Cruise plays Barry Seal, an American pilot who worked for Medellin drug cartel leader Pablo Escobar and later became an informant for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, in “Mena.”

“Cruise is living in Medellin. He’s gone to different restaurants to eat and has spent time with the people,” the mayor said.

The Hollywood star was impressed with the “beauty of the mountains” in Medellin, Gaviria said. “His comments about the city were positive and he has an extremely positive impression of Colombia.”

Cruise shared some ideas about how to turn Medellin into the “film industry capital of Latin America,” the mayor said.

Jack Reacher Sequel To Start Shooting In November

Posted by Annie on
August 13th, 2015

News via Empire.

Jack Reacher, like Oblivion and Edge of Tomorrow, didn’t quite do the business expected of its megastar headliner Tom Cruise. A sequel, despite the obvious franchise potential of the multiple Lee Child source novels, wasn’t a foregone conclusion, although rumblings began in May that it was starting to look possible, with Ed Zwick in the director’s chair.

Now, with the success of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation reassuring everyone that Cruise’s mojo is still intact, studio Paramount are pushing ahead, with shooting on Jack Reacher 2 earmarked for November this year, for a release in late 2016.

Paramount are also keen to keep on striking while the Mission: Impossible iron is hot, with THR reporting that the studio want the sixth instalment shooting next summer, for a June or July release in 2017.

Back when Jack Reacher 2 was first mooted, the plan looked to be an adaptation of 2013’s Never Go Back, Child’s eighteenth Reacher novel. That plot would see Reacher heading back to his old military base in Virginia, to be charged with a violent incident and faced with a paternity case, neither of which transgression he remembers. Richard Wenk had been working on the screenplay, but it’s now being re-written by Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz. So the final thrust remains to be seen.

With Cruise and Doug Liman’s drug-smuggling DEA drama Mena almost wrapped but not due to come out until the beginning of 2017, we’re looking at a triple-whammy of Cruiser vehicles released in a single year. Is Paramount making a mistake, putting its faith in ’90s-style star power when, these days, it’s IPs rather than people that dictate box office? Tell us your thoughts on that in the comments section, why don’tcha.
