Warner Bros. Buys Tom Cruise/Dan Fogelman Project

Tom CruiseSo in news that doesn’t surprise anyone, when you’re Tom Cruise, movie studios are willing to pay you a lot of money. According to Deadline, Warner Bros. has purchased an untitled pitch from screenwriter Dan Fogelman (Crazy, Stupid, Love) with Cruise attached to star for over $1.5 million. He’ll play a politician who gets caught in an affair and retreats to his hometown to confront his troubled past. Vulture suspects that this could actually be an the adaptation of Andrew Young’s novel about the John Edwards-Rielle Hunter affair called The Politician (that Aaron Sorkin plans to direct), but like we said, that’s just speculation.
