Tom Cruise is finally making progress on his remake of hit 1940s movie I Married a Witch- he’s signed up Danny DeVito to direct it.
The film, a remake of the 1942 comedy that starred Fredric March and Veronica Lake , originally caught the eye of the Mission: Impossible star five years ago.
He had hoped to headline the new movie alongside his ex-wife Nicole Kidman.
And although the Moulin Rouge! beauty will no longer be attached to the picture any longer, Cruise is still considering starring in the flick, in addition to producing it.
In the original film, a witch burned at the stake in the 1660s puts a curse on her tormentor’s family to ensure that his male descendants always marry the wrong woman.
DeVito says he hopes to begin production toward the end of the year. Other castmembers have yet to announced.
Kidman, meanwhile, has a witchy role of her own to concentrate on, when she stars in a movie version of the classic TV show Bewitched.
Thanks to Chantal!
