Tom Cruise might be in superhero 'Sleeper'
As if we didn't have enough comic book angst to fill today's column, the Hollywood Reporter also says that Tom Cruise plans on getting in on the act with Sleeper, an adaptation of a 2003-05 Wildstorm series that was full of characters from WildC.A.T.s and Gen 13. Boy, we're excedding our dork quotient by a factor of five today, aren't we?
Sam Raimi is supposedly on board to direct the flick, about an agent who picks up some alien artifact and fuses with it, making him impervious to pain, a benefit he can pass on to others through skin contact. Chances are the audience will need it to watch Cruise grin his way through this one. Ba-DUM-tish!
