A German film studio has offered to negotiate a settlement with a dozen extras who were injured on the set of the movie “Valkyrie,” The Associated Press reported. Despite the offer, the extras are still demanding that Tom Cruise, the star and executive producer of this World War II film, and the production company, United Artists, pay them $11 million. The extras suffered from cuts, bruises and broken bones when the door of a truck they were riding in fell open last August. The extras were not hired by United Artists, but by Achte Babelsberg Film GmbH. A statement from Julie Polkes, spokeswoman for Mr. Cruise and United Artists, declined to comment on “pending or threatened legal matters.”{nl}Source:  The New York Times

Tom recently gave a telephone interview to his old friend Liz Smith for Variety.  In the interview, he discusses Paula Wagner’s departure from UA, his current status at UA, Valkyrie, and he says that “he believes” “The Tourist” will be his next project.  Of course he also talks about the two women in his life, Katie and beautiful daughter Suri. {nl}We here at FOREVER can confirm that Tom is awaiting the final ‘Tourist’ script before completely committing to the project.{nl}Here is the interview as it appears in today’s Variety:{nl}”I LOVE Paula Wagner but she wants to produce elsewhere and in her own venue and I don’t intend to stand in her way. I’ll say this of her leaving United Artists — whatever Paula wants is what I want her to have! And I hope we’ll continue working together on future projects.” So spoke Tom Cruise on the phone with me this week. He added, cryptically: “I don’t run United Artists; I just own it.” {nl}It’s always fun to talk to Tom who tells me that his now “controversial” film about the German resistance attempt to assassinate Adolph Hitler in World War II is coming out on Dec. 26. All those critics who have panned the project,”Valkyrie” in advance, should know that nothing can deter Tom from his belief in this story. He says, “It’s original. It’s suspenseful. The writers Chris McQuarrie and Nathan Alexander are just great and I can’t say enough good things about the director Bryan Singer. I first met him at the ‘Mission: Impossible’ premiere and we’ve been hoping to work together ever since. (Singer is the man who did “X-Men” and “Superman Returns.” {nl}WHEN I asked Tom why he felt so many people in the business have gone after the “Valkyrie” project as if it’s a bad idea or something historically obscene, he sighed: “It just doesn’t make sense to me either. The moment I read the screenplay I knew it was an important story and as it’s a true tale of heroic resistance to one of the great villains of history, I can’t imagine that people won’t want to see it.” {nl}I ASKED Tom if he will continue doing comedies on the heels of his “character” impersonation as a fat, horrid studio executive in Ben Stiller’s “Tropic Thunder?” He laughed, “Well, I’m always looking for something new and Ben’s movie is hilarious. He and I are old friends and he is a really good director, so originally I said I’d do it just for friendship. But it turned out great. I actually love comedy and I did it in ‘Risky Business’ so I’ll do more if it presents itself. I’m also always looking for a good love story and I think I have one in a coming international thriller called ‘The Tourist.’ I believe I will be doing that.” {nl}I told Tom I was looking forward to his wife’s debut on Broadway in the revival of Arthur Miller’s “All My Sons.” He said, “Things are going really well for Katie and we’ll see you on opening night, Sept. 18.” I congratulated moviedom’s big star on his little baby girl. He began to burble: “Oh, yes, she’s so charming; she’s so beautiful; she’s just great!” (That was Daddy talking, not the formidable icon who has made billions of dollars for Hollywood since 1983.){nl}Source:  Variety{nl} {nl}

Facing generally weak competition from a slew of low-buzz new releases and strong opposition from the waning days of the Beijing Summer Olympics, Tropic Thunder eked out a repeat win at the box office this weekend, while The House Bunny was an impressive No. 2 and Death Race ran out of gas. {nl}In a turn of events that I should have seen coming, Ben Stiller’s action satire grossed a very nice $16.1 mil on a slight 38 percent drop, raising its two-week sum to a sweet $65.7 mil. It’s just the third movie of the summer to repeat at No. 1 (after Iron Man and The Dark Knight), the fifth film of the year to do so (21 and Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who! also managed the feat), and the first R-rated flick of 2008 to return as champ. {nl}Source: Entertaiment Weekly
