Dinner For Shmucks director Jay Roach is currently in talks to helm a new comedy for Warner Bros. called El Presidente. The movie was written by Parks and Recreation writer Dan Goor, and the best part of the news is they want Tom Cruise and Robert Downey Jr. to star in it. This sounds like it could be a hilariously great project for all of these guys.
According to Vulture, the story "follows an overzealous Secret Service agent whose work-life boundary issues get him reassigned to the inglorious task of guarding America's worst former president, who is a bumbling sleaze. The job suddenly becomes exciting when a threat is made on the ex-president's life and they must go on the run."
They want Cruise to take on the role of the secret service agent, and Downey Jr. to play the former President. I would love it if they were able to close deals with Cruise and Downey Jr. I could see the two of them really having a fun time together on a film like this. What do you think about the possibility of these two actors working together on this?
