We have word today that princess Theron will be teaming up with commander cruise in The Tourist. We get the following scoop from our friends at the movieweb:
Charlize Theron is in talks to star with Tom Cruise in The Tourist, director Bharat Nalluri’s remake of the 2005 French thriller Anthony Zimmer.
According to Variety, the Julian Fellowes-scripted drama centers on a female Interpol agent who uses an American tourist in an attempt to flush out an elusive criminal with whom she once had an affair.
Spies falling in love is nice drama, but something I could never really get on board. In order to get the the level where they let you be a spy, I would think that you would have to be a master of your own emotions. Falling in love is something a spy does after retirement. Until then every love is a liability or a target.
Charlize and Tom is a quality team up for a film like this however. The Theron is a talented, delicious actress that I enjoy seeing in anything, up to and including pants. Tommy has had trouble with his PR the past few years because of his insanity, but now he seems to be making the most of it and is quickly becoming the beloved crazy guy instead of the scary crazy guy.
Production on this film is slotted for March and we will be certain to fill you in on all of the updates and details.
