Tom Cruise's Mission to Save Himself

Tom Cruise's Mission to Save Himself

Last week, Tom Cruise met with former boss Sumner Redstone of Paramount Pictures, who decided not to renew Tom’s contract in 2006.

According to FoxNews.com, “The fact that Cruise groveled in public with Redstone would indicate that the actor knows just how bad “Valkyrie” is and that he’s trying to shore up his future before the eye patch hits the fan this fall. Certainly, a signed $20 million contract from Paramount would be insurance against this unavoidable disaster destroying his career.”

“More importantly, if Redstone allows Cruise back, he will be returning after the release this fall of “Valkyrie,” in which he plays Col. Claus von Stauffenberg, the real-life would-be assassin of Adolf Hitler, with an eye patch, a withered limb and — according to the $100 million film’s trailer — a California accent reminiscent of Jerry Maguire.”

Valkyrie, directed by Bryan Singer (X-Men, Superman Returns), is set to be released this coming October, and follows Tom‘s recent box-office blunder, Lions for Lambs.
