Tom Cruise was originally set to star back in 2002, but when he dropped out, the production ground to a halt.
Michael Gilio (Treasure Island) will be adapting the screenplay. Jon Shestack will produce. Shestack said, “I’ve been trying to get Warner Bros. to buy this since the day it came out, and that it’s finally happening is enough to make me believe in magic.”
