Tom Cruise’s potty-mouthed movie producer alter ego Les Grossman is heading back to the big screen, it has been announced.
Cruise, who wowed audiences with an energetic performance as his Tropic Thunder alter ego during the MTV Movie Awards in Hollywood on Sunday, is to star in a spin-off movie based on the super-producer.
Paramount Pictures and MTV Films announced the project today, adding that Cruise will star in and produce the movie, along with co-star Ben Stiller.
Stiller said in his statement: “Les Grossman’s life story is an inspiring tale of the classic human struggle to achieve greatness against all odds.
“He has assured me he plans to quote, ‘F**king kill the sh*t out of this movie and make Citizen f**king Kane look like a piece of crap home movie by the time we are done.’ I am honored to be working with him.”
Now that’s just f**king great news!
