{nl}Tom Cruise is narrowing the prospects for his next film, but no matter which he chooses, he has single-handedly propped up the script doctoring biz: Studios have spent millions of dollars in rewrite fees to custom-tailor projects for the star. {nl}The frontrunners for his next film appear to be the Dream Works drama “Motorcade,” to be directed by Len Wiseman, followed by Spyglass remake “The Tourist” (with Charlize Theron), to be helmed by Bharat Nalluri, and Fox action comedy “Wichita” (with Cameron Diaz), which James Mangold will direct. Also still in the mix is MGM’s “The Matarese Circle,” which potentially matches Cruise with Denzel Washington and helmer David Cronenberg. {nl}No longer in the mix are Universal/Working Title romantic comedy “Lost for Words,” to be directed by Susanne Bier, and “The 28th Amendment,” the drama Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck will helm for Warner Bros. {nl}While screenwriters all over town have been taking haircuts on every deal, the script doctors in the Cruise derby have been making as much as $250,000 a week, for two to six weeks, as they hone projects with notes from Cruise. Those writers include Scott Frank, who has been revising the action comedy “Wichita” for Cruise to play an action hero; Richard Curtis, who beefed up “Lost for Words”; and Paul Attanasio, who is now rewriting the rewrite that “Matarese Circle” director Cronenberg delivered. {nl}Meanwhile, Billy Ray continues to hone “Motorcade” with notes from Cruise. Christopher McQuarrie is doing the same on “The Tourist,” which the writer is also producing. (Ray and McQuarrie are not technically script doctors because they’ve been writing these projects for months.) And Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci also did some reworking of “28th Amendment,” which they originally sold as a spec script in 1999.{nl}Source:  Michael Fleming, Variety

As some of you may have heard, several pictures of Suri’s Family Birthday party were taken by a paparazzi helicopter (we won’t mention the name of the agency) on Saturday.  The party was attended by family ONLY.  It was not a public event or in a public place.  It took place in the backyard where they assumed they had privacy.  They should have had privacy!  They were on their own private property for Heaven’s sake!!  When the helicopter flew over, Tom called the Beverly Hills Police Department, but unfortunately, they were unable to get their helicopter in the air quick enough to stop the offending paparazzi agency.{nl}WE HERE AT TOM CRUISE FOREVER WILL NOT POST THOSE PICTURES.  They are unfair, wrong and an invasion of the family’s privacy.   When Tom, Kate and the family are in public, they are fair game for the paparazzi, however, when they’re in their own backyard, it is our feeling (and the family’s feeling) that they should be afforded the privacy they, and every human being, deserve.  We will NOT support what this photographic agency did in any way.  {nl}Even though we realize some fans will choose to look at the pictures, we feel the need to take a stand in support of Tom and his family and do the moral thing.  The paparazzi crossed the line.  We will not support that.

Katie (and Tom’s) brother-in-law, Joseph Jeffrey Fretti (known as Jeff to family and friends), has passed away at the tender age of 48. He was visiting his mother Shirley in Sarasota, Florida along with their two children when he passed. The cause of death was heart failure. Jeff was a funeral director and owner of the J. Jeffrey Fretti Funeral home in Toledo, Ohio.  He was married to Kate’s sister Tami (Tamera), 41. Services are scheduled for Monday in Toledo. Our love and deepest sympathies go out to Tami and her children as well as the entire Fretti, Holmes and Cruise families.

United Artists has acquired rights to and will develop “The Heartbreakers,” a girl-oriented project based on a popular young-adult novel, and will give it the new name of “Rules of Dating for Teenage Girls.”Jennifer Ross is in negotiations to write the script, with Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas attached to produce and Adelaide Scardino overseeing for the studio.”Rules of Dating” is based on a book by journalist-turned-novelist Pamela Wells, who published her debut novel “The Heartbreakers” in fall 2007. She followed that up a year later with a second novel, “Crushes,” that focused on many of the same characters.”Rules of Dating” centers on four best friends and their on-again, off-again dalliances with boys. After several of the girls are dumped, they devise a set of rules they are sure will snag any man and prevent future breakups. Those familiar with the project described it as a coming-of-age comedy with a girl-power streak.Ross, repped by Endeavor and Tom Sawyer Entertainment, is a postproduction veteran with credits on HBO’s “Sex and the City” and “Big Love,” among others.UA has a number of youth-oriented projects in development, including a remake of “Teen Witch,” the 1989 supernatural comedy starring Robyn Lively.Projects aimed at tween and young teen girls are in vogue in the wake of the massive success of properties like “Twilight” and the success this past weekend of “Hannah Montana: The Movie.” Bookseller stats, for instance, show overlap between “Twilight” and “Heartbreakers” consumers. {nl}Source:  The Hollywood Reporter{nl}

We here at FOREVER feel it’s necessary in this situation to step outside reporting about our Terrific Tom and discuss a serious situation happening in the world.  {nl}As you know, a magnitude 6.3 earthquake, as well as many aftershocks, have hit central Italy.  The quake hit the town of  L’Aquila and several other towns covering 230 square miles in central Italy early Monday, leveling buildings and reducing entire blocks to piles of rubble. It was the worst quake to hit Italy in three decades.  There are many dead and even more who have been left homeless by the quake.  We here at FOREVER are very concerned about this situation and it’s aftermath.{nl}Our dear friend and member, Vania is working to bring relief to the area and has recommended a charity which is accepting donations.  She has personal knowledge of the charity and knows they are working hard to bring help.  {nl}If you would like to donate, you may contact:{nl}MISERICORDIA DI ROMA Monte dei Paschi di Siena Ag.10 Piazza Vescovio, Roma, Italy IBAN code: IT 80 K 01030 03210 000000986862 Thank You!!
