Per Variety, Tom Cruise's first film since acrimoniously splitting from Paramount could be one of the following: Lions for Lambs, an indie political drama about a platoon of U.S soldiers in Afghanistan, possibly directed by Robert Redford; The Ha-Ha, in which Cruise would play a mute Gulf War vet charged with caring for an abandoned 9-year-old (Oscar-bait much?); and Spike Lee's Selling Time, about a man trying to relive and change the worst day of his life.
