Robert Redford, Meryl Streep and Tom Cruise in the same movie?!?

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. The movie's called LIONS FOR LAMBS and it stars Meryl Streep, Robert Redford and Tom Cruise, with Redford also directing. Peter Berg, Derek Luke, Michael Pena and Andrew Garfield pad out the rest of the cast in this flick described as a "multi-layered drama." The flick marks the return of United Artists under their new management, which includes Cruise and will hit screens in November, with principal photography currently underway. I want to know more, but the title is good and the cast is very interesting.

    "The title is good"

    According to multiple european film sides the Weinstein fuckers decided to release Grindhouse as 2 seperate movies in European theatres. Thus eliminating the fun for European movie fans who are not to experience the film as intended. STOP THE MADNESSSS! Fucking cocksuckers.

    CAUTION: too many intersecting plotlines ahead

    by Spandau Belly

    I think I heard this is one of those movies like Babel, Magnolia, Short Cuts, Crash, Bobby etc. that tries to compensate for quality of story with quantity of stories. If you like compound tragedy and think that plots are made more meaningful through intersecting with other semi-related plots than this might just be the film for you!

  • Feb. 21, 2007, 8:34 a.m. CST

    Same Tom Cruise. Just six times more Tom Cruise-ier.

    by brokentusk

    This film will be great, I think Tom thought long and hard about what his next role should be and choosing a straight dramatic role is a good choice.

    No Role For Redford In Indian Jones?

    This gigantic Tom Cruise will destroy us all

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    As excited as I am to see little Tom take the next step in his bid for world domination, the thought of a new Robert Redford film makes me sleepy. I liked Quiz Show, but everything else he's done as a director reminds me of a heavily lacquered antique oak table.

    How far AICN has fallen (with Shigeru)

    by Reynard Muldrake

    It's not even being behind news from other sources now - but Harry covered this at least a couple/few months ago - probably easily searchable - it nutted over all the directors that have worked with Cruise (indeed, an impressive list). Quint, read your own site.

    by ripsovich

    Once guys are slipping. Othe websites are SCOOPING YOU. It seems like, ever since Harry got engaged, he is falling off his game. Or is that just a coincidence?

  • Feb. 21, 2007, 9:05 a.m. CST

    Yep, here it is:

    by Reynard Muldrake Top listing in the search for 'Tom Cruise'. Really hard. And dated Nov. 14, so at least you were on top of it...originally. Get back to doing things that make it fun to come here - someone get their weaselly hands on Darabont's Indy 4 script and unleash its supposed brilliance on the world and then go teabag George Lucas until he cuts out every (CGI) character (I heard they're bringing Brando back for Indy 5) and relative in the "new and improved" script. Or something like that. Or get the first image of the Joker and don't take it down. Anything. But at least check for the old as Harrison Ford's balls Tom Cruise news.

    I havent read a word of the script or seen a frame of the film. That being said I think Hollywood is worried the world will end if it doesnt nominate her every year.

    Tom Cruise sucks!!

    by The Central Scrutinizer

    Having Tom Cruise in your movie makes it an automatic deal-breaker for me. He plays the same god-damned character in every single movie. How many times can a guy play "the cocky self-involved leading man who finds the real meaning of life and a love interest along the way". Screw him and everyone who likes him!

    Agree with Reynard Muldrake - Indy IV script NOW fuckrs

    by kinghenryVIII

    Had to make "fuckers" fit somehow.<p> Bring on the cool news for the sake of Pete! You all seem to be rubbing one out over the great shit canned script that is Indy IV (and, by the way, don't care who wrote, in fact wrote it, I can't wait to see the movie) yet we know nothing about the plot! C'mon! Bring on cocept art for The Mist! Bring on ANYTHING that resembles COOL NEWS!<p>Brittany Spears shaved her head due to lice - print that! That's a scoop - not this shit. And while you're at it - get some 5 month old pictures of Brit's snatch so we can see if the curtains match the drapes. 5 month old things seem to be the "new news" around here anyway so, yeah, my giant leap with that crotch bucket does make sense.<p>Bring on the Indy script dammit!

    by georges garvaren

    You’ve heard the term “character actor” before? Then pull your head out of that silly poop of an ass, because Tom aint fucking one of them. He’s a “movie star” like many of the actors in the posters that paper your bedroom walls. If you don’t like him, fine -you’re a nit and full of doodoo- but fine; I except your stupidity, but I don’t believe anyone else will.

    Tom Cruise to play "ShortRound" in Indy IV

    by finky089

    well, he's about the same height and has dark hair. Plus the original Shorty was too embarassed by what this new film is shaping up to be to come back for it. <p> Leave it to Cruise to have to out himself in his own studio's movie in order to work again. But I'm sure that's what Xenu told him would happen anyway. All Hail Hubbard!

    by ripsovich

    See Hollywood is hiring the AICN staff more often. Now the staff is part of the same industry they were trying to reveal the secrets of. By hiring the AICN staff Hollywood has created a conflict of interests and now AICN has become a Hollywood P.R. machine with plants and gushing reviews to help out their friends. I agree with about some spoilers and insider information for a change.

    by Spandau Belly

    That rumour you heard is false. Sly isn't doing a 6th Rocky. Steven Segal is taking over the role but due to the influence of producers Rocky will be a CIA operative in Hungary and the title will be generated by a computer that rearranges military terms to incorporate the word 'death'. Paulie will be played by Paul Walker.

    dedicated to L hubbard. Rosisin Ignle of the irish times went to this musical with some friends while she was in New York(one kid did a spot on impersation of lil tom) and later they were coralled into the scientology center to watch some stupid video. The point of her article was to say if cruise wants to become the new jesus what harm of it.

    by Volstaff

    I like Redford's films. I thought An Unfinished Life was very underrated, look forward to this for pretty much that reason. Perhaps Redford's steady hand will bring out the charismatic as hell, good actor Cruise can be ( Rain Man )instead of the goofy scientologist bouncing off the walls Cruise we've had waay too much of the last couple years.
