TOM'S NEW MISSION

Tom Cruise is developing and will possibly star in a feature film remake of H.G. Wells's classic Martian invasion saga The War of the Worlds, Variety reports. War — which depicts a seemingly unstoppable Martian attack on Earth — was previously brought to the screen in 1953. In 1938, Orson Welles caused a panic when he performed Wells's book on the radio as if it were a live news broadcast.
