Recently, Joblo.com was on the set of War of the Worlds. After chatting with Steven Spielberg and Tom Cruise he came away with some interesting news regarding Cruise's involvement in the New Line Cinema adaptation of Marvel Comic's Iron Man.

According to Tom, when asked about whether he was doing the comic pic, he replied:

"It's not happening. Not with me, no."
When asked why, he replied,
"I don't know. It just...they came to me at a certain point and...when I do something, I wanna do it right. If I commit to something, it has to be done in a way that I know it's gonna be something special. And as it was lining up, it just didn't feel to me like it was gonna work. I need to be able to make decisions and make the film as great as it can be, and it just didn't go down that road that way."

Currently, New Line has set Nick Cassavetes (The Notebook) to direct Iron Man.
