Tom Cruise to Star in Fox Channel 'Minority Report' TV Show?
Tom Cruise could be part of the cast for the new Fox TV series "Minority Report."
According to Deadline, after a 20-minute clip of the Steven Spielberg-executive produced series was played to rave reviews and great applause at the ongoing Comic-Con festival, executive producer Kevin Falls teased that even more could be on the horizon.
That could come in the form of Hollywood star Tom Cruise appearing on the show. In the aftermath of the screening, Falls quickly teased the audience that the "Top Gun" star's appearance is "something that may or may not happen."
Based on Spielberg's 2002 feature adaptation of the Philip K. Dick short story, "Minority Report" the series is set in 2065 Washington, D.C., a decade after the flick in which Cruise played Chief John Anderton, who is framed in his own unit's pre-crime prediction system.
The series will also star Daniel London as Wally, Laura Regan (Pre-Cog), Meagan Good (Det. LauraVega) and Wilmer Valderrama (Officer Will Blake).
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Good and Valderrama's characters have a history between them which includes a challenged romance made more complicated when he receives a promotion she is convinced she deserved.
"There is a little bit of history there, and you'll see it play out across the season," said Valderrama.
There is no word on what role Cruise will play if and when he joins the cast. Back in 2002, the 55-year-old, three time Academy Award nominated star shined as Precrime Captain Anderton. The film also starred Colin Farrell as Department of Justice Agent Danny Witwer and Samantha Morton as senior precog Agatha.
Cruise has also starred in such films as "Risky Business," "All The Right Moves," "The Color of Money," "Born on the Fourth of July" "A Few Good Men," "The Firm" "Interview With a Vampire," "Jerry Maguire" and "Mission Impossible."
