Yowzers!! Tom Cruise just won't quit
jumping on couches!
He’s in the market for new Maverick aviators!
He’s starring in Rock of Ages AND singing on the soundtrack!!
And now he’s raising the stakes by attaching himself to play everyone's famous vampire hunter not named Buffy… Dr. Abraham Van Helsing!
Wolverine Hugh Jackman just do the same movie a few years ago?? Hmm.)
According to Universal, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci will pen the Van Helsing script. As they’re the dudes who wrote the Star Trek reboots, MI:III, Fringe, and Transformers, they're not new to the pressures of writing for Summer audiences with gigantic expectations.
Van Helsing might be HUGE!
Cruise is intriguing casting… but can his character fight bloodsuckers AND a Civil War at the same time??
Benjamin Walker can, LOLz!!
Walker's stars as Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter next month.
Who would U rather have at your side fighting the forces of darkness?
