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).

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 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.

    MATT please Says:

    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!

    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.
