Tom Cruise - Tom Cruise To Star In Van Helsing Remake
Tom Cruise is to star in and produce a reimagining of 2004 vampire movie 'Van Helsing'.
The 'Mission: Impossible' actor will also produce the remake of the 2004 Hugh Jackman vampire movie alongside Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci's K/O Paper Products in one of the pair's first works under their new two-year first-look production deal with Universal Pictures.
The film is expected to be released in 2016.
Alex and Roberto will also tackle a remake of 'The Mummy' as part of their new deal and are delighted to be working with Universal Pictures long-term.
They said in a statement: ''We're thrilled to call Universal Pictures our home. From the moment we sat down with Adam Fogelson [chairman], Donna [Langley, co-chairman] , Peter, Jeff and the entire Uni team, there was an instant flow of inspired ideas. They really understand the importance of building a strong creative team and giving our shared projects their full support. We're proud to start making movies that will live as part of Universal's enduring legacy.''
Universal are equally pleased to be working with the 'Transformers' writers.
Alex and Donna said in a statement: ''Alex and Roberto are extraordinarily talented writers and producers who know the value of a great story in building successful tentpole films.
''They have been a major part of some of Hollywood's biggest movies and television shows in recent history, and we're eager to have them build on that success at Universal.''
