Popular Hollywood actor Tom Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie intend to continue their collaboration and are preparing to present audiences with at least three new joint projects.
One of them, according to sources, will be a film about Les Grossman, Tom Cruise's character from the comedy "Soldiers of Fortune" (2008), an irascible, spewing profanity of the studio manager, who is used to solve problems by means of threats and blackmail.
Recall that in 2010, Paramount Studios and MTV Films announced that Cruise would play Grossman in a spin-off of "Soldier of Failure" after the actor appeared in that character at that year's MTV Movie Awards. "Les Grossman's biography is an inspiring story of a classic human struggle to achieve greatness no matter what," said director Ben Stiller. However, this project was never put into production.
Perhaps the enormous success of the military action film Top Gun: Maverick, which grossed over $1.3 billion at the worldwide box office and became the highest-grossing film of Cruise's career, made Paramount studio executives remember the idea.
