    Tom Cruise may go head-to-head with Denzel Washington in The Matarese Circle. In the story, two spies who work for warring nations must join forces in order to take down an international group of criminals called the Matarese. The film is based on a Robert Ludlum book.

    Cruise is in the final stages of negotiations to star as Russian spy Vasili Taleniekov, the enemy of American intelligence agent Brandon Scofield, who will be portrayed by Washington. The project is considered to have excellent franchise potential. MGM, where Cruise is a part owner, will distribute and release the film. David Cronenberg, who last directed Eastern Promises, will helm the project.
