Tom Cruise is in talks to star in The Matarese Circle, the adaptation of Robert Ludlum thriller that David Cronenberg is directing for MGM later this year. Denzel Washington has already signed up to star in the film.

Cruise will go mano a mano with Washington as two bitter enemy spies who, after spending two decades trying to kill one another, find themselves in the crosshairs of the Matarese, a powerful group at the root of a conspiracy. The script by Michael Brandt and Derek Haas ("Wanted") contemporizes Ludlum's original Cold War premise.

[...]

The deal is coming together quickly, and it is unclear whether it will be structured in such a way that MGM can tap the Merrill Lynch production funding that was raised when Cruise became an owner of UA.

Project becomes the marquee film under the new regime of MGM topper Mary Parent, and the film is expected to be released in 2010.
