It seems that the relationship between Steven Spielberg and Tom Cruise is not living its best moment and the director would be avoiding working with the star of Mission Impossible again.
Steven Spielberg is one of the greatest directors in the history of cinema, not to mention that he is the most commercially successful, he may be the only person who can boast of filmography that has earned more than 10 billion dollars at the box office. Meanwhile, Tom Cruise has been one of the stars of Hollywood for 35 years, so it was almost inevitable that any collaboration between the two would yield spectacular results.
Minority Report is one of the best science fiction films of the 21st century, while War of the Worlds was a huge success that reinvented the classic story of the modern era, and remains the largest source of income for Cruise’s career than It is not part of the Mission: Impossible franchise. However, the collaboration that seemed quite fruitful and which was intended to last much longer, dissolved and they have not worked together since.
Expert Daniel Richtman claims that’s because Steven Spielberg has no interest in working with the actor again, even though according to some publications, Cruise is looking to prepare another movie for them. Unfortunately, he doesn’t go into detail but notes that “[the director] doesn’t want to work with Cruise. ”
There were rumors circulating that Tom Cruise’s steadfast belief in Scientology created some tension on the set of War of the Worlds, and his public profile certainly suffered after his appearance on the Oprah Show, but it’s been a long time since. regained its status as one of the industry’s biggest and most consistent draws, while Spielberg continues to produce a reliable mix of prestigious dramas and big-budget blockbusters.
However, given that nine of the actor’s last twelve projects have involved director Christopher McQuarrie, it seems Cruise has found a new best friend anyway, even if he’s fallen out of favor with Spielberg.
