Tom Cruise Embarks on a New Journey with Alejandro G. Iñárritu's Latest Film.

Tom Cruise, at 61, is officially set to lead the newest project by acclaimed director Alejandro G. Iñárritu, as confirmed by Cruise's representative to PEOPLE this Thursday.

The storyline of the film remains shrouded in mystery, with only the writing team of Iñárritu, Sabina Berman, Alexander Dinelaris, and Nicolás Giacobone being public knowledge. This trio, minus Berman, previously collaborated on the Oscar-winning "Birdman" in 2014.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news, highlighting that Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment are currently in negotiations to secure the film. Deadline has added that Cruise will also don the producer's hat for this venture, in collaboration with Legendary. This marks Iñárritu's return to English-language filmmaking since "The Revenant" in 2015, starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

In a strategic move last month, Cruise inked a deal with Warner Bros., promising collaboration with CEOs Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy on a mix of original and sequel endeavors. Amidst a bustling schedule, Cruise is rumored to potentially join "Top Gun 3", following the triumph of "Top Gun: Maverick", with the screenplay team of Christopher McQuarrie, Eric Singer, and Ehren Kruger behind it. Reports from THR in January suggest that Kruger is already penning the script, and there's buzz about "Maverick" director Joe Kosinski being courted for a comeback.

While Cruise has remained mum about his future with the "Top Gun" saga, co-star Miles Teller shared in July 2022 that discussions about another sequel were in progress between him and Cruise.
