Tom Cruise has made a significant change from his usual pattern of starring in big action movies and has signed on to be part of Alejandro González Iñárritu’s upcoming film, following his success with Birdman.

Deadline reported that Cruise will be the lead in the upcoming movie, of which there is limited information except that it will be in the English language and was co-written by Iñárritu, Sabina Berman, Alexander Dinelaris, and Nicolas Giacobone, who also worked on Birdman.

Warner Bros is set to produce the movie under Cruise’s newly revealed contract with the studio, which permits him to collaborate with other Hollywood entities. Paramount is also developing a third installment of Top Gun, while Cruise is currently busy filming Mission Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two, which was delayed due to the pandemic and is scheduled for release in May 2025. Additionally, Cruise is actively focused on a long-awaited project that involves filming in outer space.

In addition to his achievements in action films, Cruise has a successful track record in both serious and humorous movies. He co-starred with Brad Pitt in Interview with the Vampire in 1994 and took on the lead role in Jerry Maguire, for which he received an Oscar nomination. In 1999, he was featured in Stanley Kubrick’s last film, Eyes Wide Shut, and later gained a best supporting actor Oscar nomination for his part in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Magnolia. In 2005, he appeared alongside Jamie Foxx in Collateral and portrayed a film producer in the 2008 comedy Tropic Thunder.

In 2022, Iñárritu became the first Mexican to receive a nomination for best director at the Oscars. That same year, he released Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths. His last English-language film was The Revenant in 2015, featuring Leonardo DiCaprio. He has won a total of eight Academy Awards for his films, including three for The Revenant (one for best director) and a special achievement award for his virtual-reality short film Flesh and Sand.
