Tom Cruise Goes Full Matarese Circle

Tom Cruise will take on the role of the Russian spy Vasili Taleniekov, mortal enemy of American intelligence operative Brandon Scofield (Denzel Washington) in the upcoming film The Matarese Circle.

According to THR, the film follows two decades-long arch-enemies who are forced into a distrustful collaboration against a wide-reaching political conspiracy orchestrated by a mysterious organization called the Matarese.

At the helm of this project is director David Cronenberg (Eastern Promises).

Yuck… So now we get to hear how much he loves Russia, borscht, and vodka…how since he was a little kid he has always wanted to be a spy…how he learned Russian (just like he speaks German, not!)…how he will speak in his best Jerry Macguire accent, instead of using a Russian accent….. Uggggghhhhh!!! Can’t he just go away?!?!

Tom is really going down hill from here isn’t he. Look at the directors
he has for this film Croneberg. Now we get to see Suri in Russia..
Wow maybe we will see her in one of those russian dresses.

Isn’t Robert Ludlum the one that does Bourne trilogy. Than why not
get Matt Damon to do the role.

I loved Eastern Promises and Denzel is a great actor

but I just cant watch a film with Tom Cruise in it anymore, its his fault!

LOOKMaddie @ 02/11/2009 at 4:23 pm

Dam. He’s hott!!!!

LOOKMaddie @ 02/11/2009 at 4:24 pm


wow ı think it is so fantastic ı can’t wait, tom and denzel ,ı love them both

LOOKMaddie @ 02/11/2009 at 4:25 pm


I wonder why Washington bothers with that $ciento creep, he’s so much better than that. At least Washington can act, Crazy Cruise can’t even act straight.

The midget is box office poison, Valkyrie tanked, as the movie’s real cost were at least twice the sum they officially admitted to, plus all that marketing, sending Tommy Girl, Robo bride and huge entourage of $ciento minders and hangers-on on a tour around the globe must have cost more than just a pretty penny.

Sad, if true.

Wow the 2 most talented actors of the world together , i just can’t wait to see it !!!

Tom is so gayyyyyy

Katie’s probably just his baerd

Two amazing actors,very cool ploy and helmed by a ubertalented director.

the troll that uses different names please go to school and get a life until you learn how to spell. Im sorry there are no High School Musical news for you yet.

Portugaladventure @ 02/11/2009 at 4:46 pm

Now Brad Pitt,

It’s love baby!

Handsome hell yessss!

MATT please @ 02/11/2009 at 4:47 pm

Since when has Matt Damon been in the tabloids . Not like Tom Cruise who is in it every day and the websites. Matt has never
been in the press since his last movie. Tom the gay guy wants
to see Denzel without his shirt on. Maybe visit him in the trailer!

Way cool. Im happy Tom found beautiful classy Katie Holmes and with her they are blessed with precious Suri.

Thanks JJ for this news.

Tom Cruise may be strange in real life but the guy can definitely act and has been in some good movies. This sounds like great casting with him and Denzel and the storyline sounds promising. Cool.

two class act actors and who treat people with respect
