Tom Cruise Signs on for Second WWII Drama
Tom Cruise and Bryan Singer will be teaming up again for a second World War II drama, but this time Cruise will be switching sides and playing the part of a British Major. Clayton Frohman and Edward Zwick are writing the screenplay based on the book The Man Who Never Was, a true story about the work of British Intelligence during the war.
Playing the key role of Major William Martin is what appealed to Cruise, who sees the role as being a challenge to pull off. It’s rumoured that Cruise has approached Damian Lewis (Band of Brothers) to star along side him, to help lend a little credibility to the role.
With the script still in the writing stage, no filming date has been set, though locations in England and Spain have been investigated for suitability and availability.
