Tom Cruise may star in The 28th Amendment, a political drama for Warner Bros. The Lives of Others director Florian Henckel von Donnesmarck is in discussions with the studio to helm the project, and he wants Cruise to star.
The film has been in script form since 1999 and Star Trek writers Alexander Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are currently rewriting the script. The pair originated the project a decade ago and have returned to shore up the script. The plot concerns a U.S. President who discovers the existence of a secret organization that really runs the government and wants him dead and out of the way.
