Tom Cruise is a Comic Book

Tom Cruise is in talks to star in the comic book adaptation, Sleeper, for Spider-Man director Sam Raimi, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Written by Ed Brubaker with art by Sean Phillips, Sleeper, which ran from 2003-05, centers on an operative whose fusion with an alien artifact makes him impervious to pain and allows him to pass it on to others through skin contact. He is placed undercover in a villainous organization by an intelligence agency and falls for a member of the group, named Miss Misery.

Cruise, 46, has been looking around for projects in the wake of the departure of his long-term business partner Paula Wagner from United Artists, last week.

Sleeper is a spin-off book from the Wildstorm flagship title “WildC.A.T.s” and features characters from another spin-off book, “Gen 13.”
