Toys, board games and video games are still the hot topic for Hollywood executives tracking down he latest possible franchise.
And with Transformers 2 already earning megabucks and G.I. Joe out this week, we figured we'd help out and track down a few possible options.
Helpfully, we've even offered up a plan for each movie. We're nice that way...
The Talent: Tom Cruise, Robert Duvall, director Tony Scott
The Pitch: Days Of Thunder: 20 years later. It's really that simple.
It'll get Cruise back in big, fun action movie mode and it'll allow him to show a little range as he portrays Cole Trickle doing a Lance Armstrong and trying to come back to the sport that he was once top dog in.
If we can get a Nicole Kidman cameo, that would be awesome, but we won't hold our breath.
Mainly, it's about using the worldwide brand recognition of Cruise and Scalextric to pump both up.
The Cost: $150 million, though we'd expect Cruise to defer payment until the grosses come in under his usual deal.
More cash for cars, then!
The Box Office: $450 million worldwide, since the star is under orders to avoid anything crazy, and in particular stay away from couches.
Next: Big Trak
