One surefire way to make people forget you got jilted by a studio is to, oh I dunno, BUY an old movie studio AND sign on to work opposite Robert Redford and Meryl Streep. That Tom Cruise is a pretty busy guy. (And ok, he didn’t BUY United Artists, but it looks like he’ll be running the show.)
From Variety & ComingSoon.net: "Tom Cruise next will star in Lions for Lambs, a Robert Redford-directed drama that will co-star Redford and Meryl Streep.
The movie will be Cruise’s first outing for United Artists since he and C/W partner Paula Wagner agreed to revive the company for Harry Sloan’s MGM.
"Lambs" is a Matthew Carnahan-scripted drama that consists of three interconnected storylines: Cruise as a congressman who interacts with a journalist (Streep); Redford as an idealistic professor who attempts to inspire a privileged student in his class; and a third storyline about a pair of American soldiers wounded in enemy territory, one of whom is Redford’s former student."
