In his search for the return to stardom, Tom Cruise is considering a role in a yet-untitled romantic comedy opposite Cameron Diaz – this is something quite a bit lighter than 2001’s Vanilla Sky. However, neither Cruise nor Diaz have officially signed on.
The plot centers on that romantic comedy item: a woman who has terrible luck with men. But a blind date introduces her to a handsome and mysterious man, and thus their paths end up intertwined.
According to Variety, the actors are in talks to join the 20th Century Fox comedy that has changed titles and casts a few times over already.
Its initial title switched from Wichita to Trouble Man then to nothing. It was first set to fly with director Tom Dey, and starring Chris Tucker and Eva Mendes. The script has undergone several rewrites before and after that combination failed, including one by Frank and Dana Fox, the scriptwriters behind Diaz and Ashton Kutcher’s comedy What Happens in Vegas. And it’s now being redone by Scott Frank, who wrote the lines for Minority Report.
With so many familiar friends, no wonder Cruise and Diaz are interested.
