Tom Cruise in Talks to Join Clint Eastwood's A STAR IS BORN?
It looks like Tom Cruise might be joining another big screen musical. He recently played a 80's rock icon in the upcoming film Rock of Ages, and now Cruise in talks with Clint Eastwood to possibly join Beyonce in his next film A Star Is Born.
According to Deadline, he'll be playing "an over the hill musician who helps launch the star of an ingenue he falls in love with and who watches him slide while her star soars."
It will be interesting to see if this pans out and he ends up joining the project. He's got a pretty busy schedule as it is. He's just starting to shoot the Joseph Kosinski-directed sci-fi film Oblivion, and after that he will take one the Doug Liman-directed film We Mortals Are.
Other actors that have been approached for this role include Will Smith, Christian Bale, Eminem, and even Russell Crowe. I think Cruise would be fine in the role, but Eminem working with Eastwood is a very interesting thought. What are your thoughts on Cruise possibly taking the role?
