Tom Cruise has secured an agreement to develop and produce films with Warner Bros. Discovery. The upcoming projects will be a mix of original movies and Franchise-based movies, starring Tom. The agreement has been labeled a “strategic partnership” by the company in a release announcing the deal.
This partnership marks a return of Cruise to Warner Bros, whose storied filmography with the studio includes Edge of Tomorrow, Rock of Ages, The Last Samurai, Eyes Wide Shut, Interview with the Vampire, Risky Business, The Outsiders, and New Line’s Magnolia.
Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy, who took over as co-chairs and CEOs of Warner Bros. in 2022 said in a statement, “We are thrilled to be working with Tom, an absolute legend in the film industry. Our vision, from day one, has been to rebuild this iconic studio to the heights of its glory days, and, in fact, when we first sat down with David Zaslav to talk about joining the Warner Bros. Discovery team, he said to us, ‘We are on a mission to bring Warner Bros. back – we have the best resources, storytelling IP, and talent in the business – and we need to bring Tom Cruise back to Warner Bros!’ Today, that becomes a reality, and we are one step closer to achieving our ambition. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Tom back to Warner Bros. and look forward to bringing more of his genius to life on screen in the years ahead.”
This deal isn’t exclusive or a traditional first-look pact as the actor can also collaborate with other companies, but the aim is that he will be able to develop the kind of movies that will be blockbusters and could be franchise projects.
Cruise said, “I have great respect and admiration for David, Pam, Mike, and the entire team at Warner Bros. Discovery and their commitment to movies, movie fans, and the theatrical experience. I look forward to making great movies together!”
Some of Tom’s upcoming projects include the eighth part of “Mission: Impossible” for Paramount, “Edge of Tomorrow” for Universal, directed by Doug Liman which will make the actor become “the first civilian to do a spacewalk.” The latest project of the actor was “Mission Impossible- Dead Reckoning Part One,” which was a disappointment for the fans as well S 2022’s “Top Gun: Maverick,” which was the biggest hit of Tom’s career so far.
