Tom Cruise + Taylor Lautner = ???

Published at: Jan. 8, 2010, 9:29 a.m. CST

Merrick here...
Nikki Finke over at Deadline has learned that TWLIGHT SAGA's Taylor Lautner will join Tom Cruise in NORTHERN LIGHTS.
the logline says the pic is about "a gifted, young, aerobatics pilot who faces off with his controlling, billionaire father and falls in love with a gifted, female pilot
...says Nikki HERE. By inference, does this mean Cruise is playing Lautner's father? Does that even work out? Or, is Cruise playing some hotshot pilot again - and would that smake Lautner the "gifted" female pilot? I'm confused. NORTHERN LIGHTS will be directed by John Moore (BEHIND ENEMY LINES, THE OMEN remake, MAX PAYNE) & should start production in April.

    Cruise Is Doing This Crap?

    by Crow3711

    I never thought I'd see the day Tom Cruise would sell-out for a paycheck to play the dad in one of these fucking pics. They must have thrown a shit ton of dough at him to headline a potential Lautner vehicle. Wow. I am truly shocked. Say what you will about Cruise in real life, but he has consistently picked interesting scripts and overall, solid films to attach himself to. What the hell is going on here? This story is shite.

  • Jan. 6, 2010, 12:47 p.m. CST

    Cruise will do anything

    by allyousay

    And Taylor will do anything to step up the latter. For Taylor this is paying his dues, for Tom Cruise, this is just sad.

Let me check the indicators, oooh we have some barometric build up, I think we'll have to raise our altitude. Now ease it back, back, back, ooh you're such a fly boy.

    John Moore

    by Kammich

    showed some promise with "Behind Enemy Lines," which was pretty entertaining and had some cool visual touches. his movies since then have all looked pretty but lack any substance whatsoever. "The Omen" remake was too unnecessary to be interesting, and "Max Payne" was painful to sit through. with this premise and cast, it sounds like Moore's career will continue to trend downward.

    Surprising misstep from Cruise

    by Bass Ackwards

    Say what you will about Tom, he's usually pretty smart about the talent behind the camera when choosing his projects. Moore's track record seems pretty hack-ish, two remakes and a video game adaptation. Though I can't speak much to the guy as I haven't seen a single one of his films, but given this project, Behind Enemy Lines, and Flight of the Phoenix, he must like plane crashes.

I got a better idea. Instead of a hundred million, how about I send you a hobo's dick cheese? Then, you kill him. Do your thing, skin the fucking bastard. Go to town, man. Go to town! In the mean time and as usual, go fuck yourself... we don't negotiate with terrorists."

    SK229 raises a very... very... valid point.

    by TheMarineBiologist

    As much as I'd love to continue to laugh at this absolutely hysterical pairing of two clearly gay individuals, Les Grossman was clearly the greatest thing Tom Cruise has done in his life. He deserves to be elevated to god-status, just for that role alone.<p> And the dance... oh god, the dance...

    LOOKS LIKE MAYBE TOM IS OFF HIS MEDS AGAIN

    by BringingSexyBack

    He really needs to stick with seasoned co-stars to restore his lustre. This teaming up with the flavor-of-the-month shit always smacks of desperation.

  • Jan. 6, 2010, 10:17 p.m. CST

    Yes... the GREATEST thing he's ever done...

    by SK229

    I just watched it a few times on youtube to remind myself just how great. When he says "I will massacre you, I will FUCK YOU UP!" I fucking believe it. The way he practically chokes on the word massacre... he was channeling fucking murderous dictator levels of god-like rage and Pol Potish insanity in that part. I remember Ben Stiller saying something that Tom Cruise told him that a guy like Les has 'dead eyes'. Right on, Tommy!

    Taylor Lautner is 17 or 18.

    by AnnoyYou

    Isn't Cruise at least 45? He could easily play the dad - he certainly can't play the young pilot!

    You just know they're doing crazy shit like fucking in public or on the top of police cruisers or in clubs in Majorca, and their publicists have 24 hour crews working to cover it all up.

    What the fuck is Cruise thinking? Moore?!

    by Knuckleduster

    Cruise is known as the actor that works almost exclusively with great directors. Kubrick, Spielberg, Scorsese, P.T. Anderson, De Palma, Crowe, Stone, Mann. <p> Moore? Fuckin Moore?

    Cruise blew it

    by corplhicks

    no pun intended, but he screwed his reputation with a large segment of the population. Fact. He has acting talent no doubt, but his psychotic devotion to that greedy cult of his, not to mention his bashing of actual science puts him so far out on the bell curve as to be almost not worth working with him, in my opinion. For me, at least, at this point I am turned OFF by the thought of him in a movie, whereas I looked forward to such things 10-15 years ago. Oh and an aside: Sam Worthington--> maybe the girls find him easy on the eyes, but he needs some serious acting lessons. His accent and looks only go so far.

    That's all you had to say...I can't believe this guy is still allowed to make movies. There was a making of documentary on the dvd of The Omen (remake) I had rented...and that dude came across as a total asshole. Had he made a watchable movie, I may have accepted his attitude...but...with the crap he's puts out? Next!

    Tom Cruise And Lautner Should Do "Invincible"

    by Media Messiah

    The comic book "Invincible" would make a perfect project for them. Tom can play Invincible's super hero father, who turns out to be a villain whom Invincible must defeat in order to save the world from alien invasion.
