Tom Cruise is a Monster

Tom Cruise is a Monster

Tom Cruise will produce and may star in the serial-killer thriller The Monster of Florence, reports Variety.

The film is about eight grisly double homicides believed to have been committed single-handedly between 1968 and 1985 in and around the Italian Renaissance gem.

The script will be penned by Chris McQuarrie, who also wrote the screenplay for Valkyrie (Cruise‘s next big film opening Dec. 26). If the 46-year-old actor likes what he reads again, he’ll star in Monster.

ATTENTION ALL JJers:

I’ve had enough of certain bullies thinking they can get away with whatever they want. Therefore, I’m going to share this with you. One of the trolls from dlisted who mercilessly attacked you in Angelina threads is:

Kimberley Sallenger (kizzy1972@hotmail.com)

The poor, sweet victim was “driven away” from dlisted after too many attacks on posters there. You can’t address her there, but you can certainly email her & tell her what you think. Please do.

this is a joke, right? @ 09/05/2008 at 10:24 am

When will this arrogant, egomaniac realize that he cannot act? Oh, that’s right..he won’t because he’s been brainwashed.

Why is it that he thinks he is the best choice to act in every movie he produces, etc.? Stick a fork in him…maybe it’ll make him realized he’s “done” and maybe it will deflate his ego.

Wish he and his beard would sign up to be “experiments” on the international space station!!!!

perfect part for a nutcase @ 09/05/2008 at 10:27 am

Hey, finally some good casting for Tiny Tom…..

One problem….everybody knows he’s a nutcase. He’d be playing himself.

No Tom cruise for me @ 09/05/2008 at 11:05 am

Not a penny of my hard earned money to see this nut. Sorry.

he’s gross

This is a great book and Tom Cruise will ruin the movie if casted in it. Just like he did with Interview with the Vampire. Douglas Preston if you have any say in the casting of your book’s leads SAY NO!

I am looking forward to seeing this movie! He is a great actor. Don’t really care what his religion or politics are just as I am sure he doesn’t really care about mine … or your’s. He hasn’t killed anybody .. has he? He hasn’t hurt anyone .. has he? He’s not a drunk, a drug-user … or any type of abuser … is he? Don’t hear about his other children driving drunk, abusing drugs, sleeping around. He always delivers when performing so I don’t feel I wasted my money in watching his movies. That should be the bottom-line. I am not invested in his life … just what he brings to my entertainment dollar. So far, he hasn’t disappointed me … except (in my humble opinion) for “Eyes Wide Shut” … didn’t understand that movie at all.

By the way … isn’t America suppose to stand for “freedom” for all people? Forgive me if I am misinformed as I am not American … it’s just what I have always been led to believe and most of the Americans I have had the pleasure of associating with … reinforced that belief.

LuckyKat: Yes, we can speak our minds in America, and I respect your opinions. I only have one thing to say though. He does NOT follow a religion — he follows a ‘CULT’. A ‘CULT’ that is being investigated for deaths due to their practices of keeping those inside the flock. People who leave are harassed and threatened if they speak out against the ‘CULT’.

I wouldn’t give one nickel of my hard earned money to see this cult freak in anything.

He donates huge sums of money to an organization that kills people, takes away their human rights, steals their money and attacks anyone they don’t agree with.

He’s a monster in the real world.

#14 –

As far as anyone knows, no, TC hasn’t killed or abused anyone. But the “religion” he supports and promotes sure has. If he were to quietly go about being a Scientologist, then most people probably wouldn’t care. But he chose to become a loud, rabid mouthpiece for an organization that many people fear and loathe, so he has to accept that some people are going to try to tear him down. He made his bed. He has to lie in it now.

And yes, America is about freedom. On that I can only agree with you. Scientology, however, does not. They routinely try, and in many cases succeed in, silencing their critics and covering up the truth about their illegal and unethical practices.

If you want to enjoy TC’s movies regardless of his personal actions and beliefs, go right ahead. That is perfectly acceptable, and is your right. But there are many who feel that his association with a cult is worthy of scorn and criticism. Just because his kids don’t drive drunk or use drugs (that we know of) doesn’t mean that his ridiculous behavior over the last few years is off-limits.

Lo: OMG! You hit it out of the ball park!! Great response!!

I respect your opinion, too. I cannot comment with any authority on something I personally have not fully investigated. However, I also will not accept any opinion expressed or a story told/sold/planted in a “tabloid” about anything either. Unfortunately, they (the tabloids) have been getting away with writing lies about any/every/body/thing because, let’s face it, lies sell. It’s very sad commentary on our so-called civilized society that people are so willing to blindly accept this stuff as “truth”. It’s not even entertaining. People emotionally attach themselves to this “stuff” and make it their own truth.

As far as the “cult” thing goes, I can only observe that he appears to have a solid family life. His relationships are relatively long-term (even his exe’s have not had anything bad to say about him). Other “cult members” also appear to be solid in their lives, too. I have no interest, myself, in the “cult” or any other organized (or even unorganized) religion .. I can see/hear God all around me and he/she is a very loving presence in my life. However, I respect any other person’s right to believe as it suits them. Each of us will come to God (or whatever name that Presence resonates with you) in our own time and in our own way.

So, yes, I will see his movies or any movies … that interest me regardless of who is in it. I will only be disappointed if I did not get the value of my ticket price.

No Tom cruise for me @ 09/05/2008 at 12:22 pm

LuckyKat,
Ignorance is bliss.

I’ll take your word for it.

I like the writer and I like Cruise the actor….

So which ones are official? the chef comedy? another comedy with Ben Stiller? Sleeper comic book from Warner Bros.?
Dreamworks also wants him for Shrek so which ones are fact and fiction?

He rocks in Tropic Thunder which puzzles me why he’s still snobbed by the Academy along with many incredible actors!
