Steven Spielberg and Tom Cruise will bring "The War of the Worlds" to the bigscreen, with Cruise expected to star.

 

 

Depending on how quickly the two get a "War of the Worlds" script they like, the sci-fi epic could start in late 2005. Spielberg is now completing work on "The Terminal" with Tom Hanks and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Really, Dan? Either I'm disappointed, because he's not doing it, or I'm excited, because he's working on something good instead

 

He left Mission Impossible 3 last autumn I believe, really just due to scheduling conflicts. He's putting a lot of time into producing Lords of Dogtown. A film version of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button looks next for him on the directorial slate (there is a Variety article published today in fact, still linking him to the project at Paramount. At least I think it's Paramount). I am sure he is still itching to do Rendezvous with Rama which could then follow.

 

So er...... back to War of the Worlds, eh? :) Only note I am least keen on is David Koepp on board as writer (hey, at least that links us to the Mission Impossible discussion anyway)... I am also wondering if the film will be a contemporary of period affair. I'd love it to be the latter.
