Cruise to star in Hitler film

TOM Cruise is to star in a World War II thriller about a plot to assassinate Adolph Hitler, reports said today.

The 44-year-old Mission Impossible star will take a central role of the untitled film, which will be directed by Bryan Singer of The Usual Suspects and Superman Returns fame, reports said.

Movie industry press said the film would be the second made by United Artists since Cruise took over the company last year following his acrimonious split with Paramount.

The movie is based on a real-life plot hatched by German generals to kill Hitler during World War II.

Cruise, regarded as one of the most bankable stars in Hollywood with $3.2 billion in receipts, is currently working on political drama Lions for Lambs, with Robert Redford and Meryl Streep.


My thoughts are;

Is this not another big budget remake of a classic. I am sure I have seen a movie called "The plot to kill Hitler".

I believe some things should just be laid to rest, this movie will only stir memories of the world war 2 and the evil and unthinkable acts to man kind that this man was responsible for.

Why I ask do we have to glamorise the plot to assignate him. Come on Tom put your money into a movie that does not revolve around an evil dictator.
