Tom Cruise’s career is definitely heading in a diverse direction. Might he be our next big action hero? I think he’d like to think so, with Smilie now attached to Michael Mann’s “Collateral”. Should Cruise put pen to paper, he’ll sign on for the role of a contract killer. The script takes place on a single night. After a cabbie picks up a passenger, he and his car are taken hostage as a killer travels around Los Angeles to conduct his business. Both CAA boys, Mann and Cruise have been looking for a project to work on together for eons. Filming for this will start in October.
