Minority Report collaborators Steven Spielberg and Tom Cruise are teaming up to bring H.G. Wells' classic alien-invasion epic, The War of the Worlds, back to the big screen, according to Variety. Spielberg would likely direct the pic, while Cruise is expected to star and produce along with DreamWorks. David Koepp (Spider-Man, Panic Room), meanwhile, has been tapped to rewrite the script.
