Tom Cruise in a Hitler Thriller?

Tom Cruise: Photo from Associated PressSay no more! Yes, its Tom Cruise on the headlines again and this time he is set to star in the currently untitled World War II drama. The movie is pictured around the real events surrounding a group of German generals plotting to assassinate Adolph Hitler. Even though he said "ok" to star in the movie as a lead role, no role is yet specified. However, I suspect that Tom probably won't be playing Hitler. Tom's last movie was "Mission: Impossible III".

United Artists is producing the movie and Tom Cruise is a UA co-head. So this story doesn't come as a surprise. Cruise is also starring in a United Artists production, "Lions for Lambs". This drama category movie is set to be released on November 9th of this year. The plot revolves around injuries sustained by two Army ranger behind enemy lines in Afghanistan. This sets off a sequence of events involving a congressman (Cruise), a journalist and a professor.

I was just watch the Mission Impossible's last week and I must say, Tom is a great actor. He is a star and such thriller movies suit him very well. Although, I must say, his other category super releases like "Jerry Maguire", "Top Gun", "A Few Good Men" were all huge hits. Read the full story here.
