After dropping out of one high-profile project, Tom Cruise is considering another. According to Variety, Tom Cruise is considering the starring role in The Tourist. Cruise recently left the project Edwin A. Salt, which is now being re-written for Angelina Jolie.

Nothing has been signed yet and Cruise's involvement in the project is still up in the air, but this remake of the 2005 film Anthony Zimmer, has emerged as a top contender for Cruise's next starring role.

The film will be directed by Bharat Nalluri from a script by Jullian Fellowes (Gosford Park).
