Well, the rumors are confirmed: Tom Cruise is following up last year's superserious Valkyrie with a comedy titled Wichita, in which he'll star opposite Cameron Diaz. James Mangold (Girl, Interrupted, Kate & Leopold, 3:10 to Yuma) will direct the story in which "Cruise will play a secret agent who pops in and out of the life of a single woman."
After working on Valkyrie, I bet an "action-comedy" will be a breath of fresh air. And after starring together as a couple in Vanilla Sky, I wonder how Cruise and Diaz will do with comedic material. Do you like these two together? Is this matchup any better (or worse) than Diaz and Zach Braff starring together in the comedy Swingles?
