The Hollywood Reporter has Tom Cruise and Sam Raimi teaming up to adapt DC/Wildstorm comics Sleeper for the big screen.
Written by Ed Brubaker with art by Sean Phillips, “Sleeper,” which ran from 2003-05, centers on an operative whose fusion with an alien artifact makes him impervious to pain and allows him to pass it on to others through skin contact. He is placed undercover in a villainous organization by an intelligence agency and falls for a member of the group, named Miss Misery.
While it is still up in the air on if Cruise will mearly producer or if he’ll take a staring role, it could very well end up being another franchise film for Warner Bros.
noooo, i don’t want tom cruise to be anywhere near that project. i just hope he doesn’t star in it.
very cool comic book though, but the trades are not cheap. for some reasons, the price is higher than usual.
Weirdly enough…I’ve just finished Point Blank and volume 1 of Sleeper and this project sounds amazing…or would do, if Tom Cruise was removed from the equation.
Though saying that, Tom cruise as a villainous Tao would be interesting…but we all know Cruise is never going to play a villain.
