Cruise Not Out Of Edwin A. Salt

Fox News reported that Tom Cruise is set to be replaced by Will Smith in the Phillip Noyce spy thriller “Edwin A. Salt”.

Moviehole now reports that it’s false. A high-rank production source says “The studio, producers, director and potential star (Cruise) are all waiting on a rewrite of the script from Kurt Wimmer, which is due in a few weeks. Will Smith has not been approached to star. Cruise is the only actor who has been approached.”

The Sony Pictures release is about a CIA officer who is fingered by a defector as a Russian sleeper spy. Salt must elude capture by his superiors and sets out to reunite with his family and prove his innocence.
