Check this out guys – Tom Cruise and Robert Downey Jr. are in talks to star in an upcoming political comedy El Presidente.
The good thing is that Jay Roach is on board to direct the whole thing, and what’s even better – if negotiations work out, Downey Jr. would play the President while Cruise would be the Secret Service agent.
According to Vulture, El Presidente will center on an overzealous Secret Service agent whose work-life boundary issues get him reassigned to the inglorious task of guarding America’s worst former president, who is a bumbling sleaze.
The job suddenly becomes exciting when a threat is made on the ex-president’s life and they must go on the run.
Let’s admit it – it’s good to know there’s a possibility to see the Iron Man and Mission Impossible star on board for something described as an action-comedy.
Let’s not forget to mention that the whole thing comes from Parks and Recreation scribe Dan Goor which also sounds great.
El Presidente will be the first time Downey Jr. and Cruise have teamed up with each other since 2008 Tropic Thunder.
