Variety is now reporting Cruise is being courted to star in the Bharat Nalluri-directed remake of the 2005 French thriller The Tourist. The Variety piece says Cruise decided against starring in Edwin A. Salt and I can only assume that’s because he would have had to undergo gender re-assignment surgery in order for it to work.

Julian Fellowes penned the thriller in which Cruise would star as an American tourist who finds his life in danger when a female Interpol agent uses him as a dupe to flush out an elusive criminal with whom she once had an affair.

The article does say this is by no means a done deal though as Cruise is being careful about which film he takes on next.
