Tom Cruise Aims to Get Salty for His Next Role

Negotiating for lead in espionage road flick

He’s already got Bryan Singer’s Valkyrie and Robert Redford’s Lions for Lambs on the way, but the United Artists head honcho seems to have a new gig lined up, too.

Variety indicates that Tom Cruise will most likely star in Terry George’s Edwin A. Salt, an espionage story written by … Kurt Wimmer? Really? The same Kurt Wimmer who wrote / directed Equilibrium and Ultraviolet? OK then.

The thriller will focus on a CIA spy who is accused of being a counter-spy, so (of course) he has to hit the road, protect his family, and prove his innocence.

Mr. George is best known for writing and directing Hotel Rwanda, although he also penned films like Hart’s War, The Boxer, and In the Name of the Father. Odds are that this will be Cruise’s next project once the other two are completed.
