Thu, 28 May 2009 10:42:30
After much speculation, Tom Cruise has
confirmed his role opposite Cameron Diaz (with whom
he starred in Vanilla Sky) in Wichita, an
action-comedy for 20th Century Fox.
Cruise and Diaz have reportedly approved the script, which has gone through several different drafts, and the pair are deep in negotiation phases. The studio is said to want a summer 2010 release for the project, which will see Cruise as a secret agent who enters and exits a single woman's life. Diaz will play the singleton. Cruise had been at the center of dozens of casting rumors throughout the winter, with industry hawks speculating about which films he would actually choose. Wichita marks his first confirmation in quite some time.
