Robert Redford Denies Tom Cruise Collaboration

LOS ANGELES (October 26, 2006) — So much for a Tom Cruise – Robert Redford collaboration.

Earlier this week, Variety reported that Cruise was considering three films for his next project, with one of them being an indie film called “Lions for Lambs.”

“Lions” was described as a political drama that follows a platoon of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. Cruise would play a congressman alongside Robert Redford and Meryl Streep. Redford would also likely direct, according to Variety.

However, at an event endorsing California’s Prop 87 initiative on Wednesday, the Sundance kid rained on Variety’s parade, dispelling the rumors he was teaming up with Tom.

“Forget it. Don’t listent to the trades,” Redford told Access Hollywood, adding there “just isn’t anything to talk about.”

Among the other films Tom is reportedly considering are “The Ha-Ha,” about a Gulf War vet who’s been rendered mute by his injuries and is now charged with taking care of a 9-year-old girl after her mother goes AWOL; and Spike Lee’s “Selling Time,” about a man who sells back parts of his life for a chance to relive and change the worst day of his life.

Tom’s Mission: Tell As Little As Possible

The most shocking thing about Tom Cruise’s publicist confirming Nov. 18 as the date for the actor’s marriage to Katie Holmes? Simply the fact that it’s being confirmed.

Cruise is one of Hollywood’s most secretive stars — except when he wants publicity for his movies. Yet, his spokesman Arnold Robinson surprised many by saying, ”Those details are correct” — responding to a Us Weekly report about wedding guests being told to reserve the Nov. 16-19 weekend for the Cruise-Holmes nuptials at an unidentified Italian location.

In addition, famed Italian designer Giorgio Armani confirms he’s creating both Holmes’ gown and Cruise’s wedding suit.

But don’t be carried away by this new Cruise ”openness.” It has very strict limits.

”Even by revealing the date and mentioning the country … a lot is still unanswered. Italy is a big country, and no one — no one! — knows how to organize security like Tom,” a close Cruise source told this column Tuesday.

”Trust me. This is being planned better than a military operation. In fact, I’d suggest President Bush hire Tom to run things in Iraq. It probably would be going better if he was in charge,” the source added — only half-kidding.

Star Trek role for Tom Cruise?

Okay, this would be funny, and I’d have to watch Star Trek for the first time… 😀

Actor Tom Cruise is reportedly in negotiations to re-team with ‘Mission: Impossible 3’ director J.J Abrams for the next ‘Star Trek’ movie.

The actor is reportedly a huge fan of the sci-fi franchise and jumped at the chance to play a cameo role in the new film, which will be directed by Abrams.

An insider tells Canada’s TV Guide magazine, “He didn’t even need to be begged to appear in it.”

It’s not known what role Cruise will play, but Trekkies are suggesting he should play a starfleet academy instructor.

The new ‘Star Trek’ film will try to revive the franchise by telling the origins of the first Starship Enterprise crew, featuring a young Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock amongst others.

Another Photoshoot

Annie’s on fire! I’ve had this photoshoot on my computer for over a year now. A visitor sent me those, she asked I wouldnt post her name. Wasn’t sure I’d post the pics, but decided to post now.

I have a few others too, which I just know you guys will love, but I will post just this one today.
I’m sorry about the huge tags, but since I found out others sites are stealing my content, and I know what pictures are mine, cause they’re like my babies, so, huge tags are now required.
Reposting is fine, but credit is necessary. What’s wrong with credit? I’ve always credited my sources

If anyone wants clean copies for fanart or layouts, just e-mail me and I will send them!

What Will Be Tom’s Next Movie?

It looks like Tom Cruise is just about ready to head back to work – and when he does, he’ll have his choice of projects lined up.

Tom is currently considering three films for his big-screen return, reports Variety.

Two of the films are from major studios (Warner Bros. and Fox) and one is an independent feature, which appears to be the most likely choice, according to Variety.

The indie film, “Lions for Lambs,” is a political drama that follows a platoon of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. Cruise would play a congressman alongside Robert Redford and Meryl Streep. Redford would also likely direct.

Another project reportedly on Tom’s radar is “The Ha-Ha” from Warner Bros. In the film (an adaptation of a Dave King novel), Cruise would play a Gulf War vet who’s been rendered mute by his injuries and is now charged with taking care of a 9-year-old girl after her mother goes AWOL.

Cruise has also been in talks with Spike Lee about Lee’s latest film “Selling Time,” about a man who sells back parts of his life for a chance to relive and change the worst day of his life.

Cruise and Lee have reportedly met several times to discuss the project.

If Cruise signs on for any of these projects, it will mark his first film since he left Paramount in August in a highly publicized separation.

And as far as Access Hollywood movie guru Scott Mantz is concerned, Cruise should weigh his options carefully.

“Tom Cruise is at a crossroads. After everything that’s happened in the last year, this next movie is the most important movie of his career,” Mantz said. “He needs to bounce back big, because his antics and beliefs and criticism of Brooke Shields have turned off a large part of his fan base – most of whom are women.”

But does one film make more sense than the others for his triumphant return?

“He needs to remind people how good of an actor he is and the best way to do that is to avoid movies like ‘Mission: Impossible 4.’ Because of that, all three of these projects are good choices to choose from,” Mantz added. “Of the three, ‘Lions for Lambs’ sounds like the best choice. It sounds like a political drama along the lines of ‘A Few Good Men’ and if Redford directs and Streep is a co-star, that can only be good for Tom.”

However, Mantz does have one problem with the movie.

“They should change the title,” he joked.

Tom may want to steer clear of “The Ha-Ha” – another movie title that needs work according to Mantz.

“This role sounds like too much of a manipulative bid, ” Mantz suggested. “Anytime an actor plays someone with a disability, it’s like they’re trying too hard to please the Academy before a single frame has even been shot.”

And while Spike Lee has been on a venerable roll lately, coming off the success of “Inside Man” and his critically acclaimed Katrina documentary “When The Levees Broke,” Mantz said “Selling Time” might be too complex of a movie to win back a broad fan base all at once.

“He needs to remind the most people in one fell swoop why he’s still relevant in Hollywood and not the joke a lot of people see him as right now,” Mantz concluded.

Of course, there is no guarantee Cruise will pick any of these films.

Back in February, he looked at another trio of films, all of which he passed on.

Among those films were “3:10 To Yuma,” which now stars Russell Crowe and Christian Bale, and “Fool’s Gold,” which now stars Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson.

And if he does sign on for a new project, production likely wouldn’t begin until at least December. Cruise has announced he and Katie Holmes will tie the knot on November 18 in Italy. (Source: Access Hollywood)
