Tom Cruise To Star In New Alejandro González Iñárritu Film For Warner Bros. And Legendary

stgar inHot off of Tom Cruise’s new strategic partnership with Warner Bros., one that could see him join Quentin Tarantino’s The Movie Critic, Cruise has also joined a new film by Mexican auteur Alejandro González Iñárritu that is being acquired by WB and Legendary Entertainment.

The film would mark Iñárritu’s first since 2022’s Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths, and his first English-language project since 2015’s The Revenant. Details are being kept under wrapped, but Iñárritu will produce and direct from a script he co-wrote with Sabina Berman and Alexander Dinelaris and Nicolas Giacobone, who he worked with on Birdman a decade ago.

Cruise, who will also act as a producer, has been seeking more films outside the realm of action, plus a chance to work with auteurs again. Iñárritu fits the bill, and it’ll be interesting to see how this project takes shape for them both.  Iñárritu’s movies tend to lead to Oscar nominations for his stars, and Cruise could be next.
