Tom Cruise Wanted For “Star” Remake

Tom Cruise is being courted to topline Clint Eastwood’s remake of “A Star is Born” for Warner Bros. Pictures reports Variety.

Should he sign on, Cruise would play an over-the-hill musician who falls for a young singer (Beyonce) whom he is trying to help turn into a star. The likes of Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman and Leonardo DiCaprio have all been linked with the part in the past year.

Cruise begins shooting Joseph Kosinski’s untitled sci-fi pic next week for Universal before segueing from that into Doug Liman’s “All You Need Is Kill” at Warners.
