"Allocine reports that during French promotions of "Collateral", Tom Cruise mentioned that he would collaborate again with Director Michael Mann ("Heat") on a film project about the famed WW2 Battle of Britain. Filming is aiming to begin sometime before 2006, right after Cruise finishes his commitments to "The War of the Worlds" and "Mission: Impossible"



Now, what makes this so funny is that someone on QZ (Haole, I think) mentioned this very premise several months back when making fun of Hollywood's aptness for historical inaccuracy. Either Cruise is going to do another awful accent (didn't he learn anything from Far and Away?), or the Americans really did save the British during the German bombing raids.

Hasn't he had enough ruining the 'Mission Impossible' series?

I posted on the original thread too. He will play the part of an American pilot who actually DID fight in the Battle of Britain. He flew for one month, didn't shoot any planes down and was himself shot down and killed. It will be interesting to see how that changes a la Hollywood.

Other films in the pipeline:

Green Beret's rescue Welsh Regiment at Rourke's Drift.

Aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln defeats Spanish Armada

7 Marines turn the tide at the Battle of Waterloo


Cleveland May 24 to June 4th 2007 - I came, I saw, I fucked off home again.
