Tom Cruise 's hairy, hip-hop dancing mogul character, who first appeared in 2008's "Tropic Thunder" and made a return by "producing" Sunday night's MTV Movie Awards, will be the focus of a new Paramount film, the studio announced to Access Hollywood.
"Les Grossman's life story is an inspiring tale of the classic human struggle to achieve greatness against all odds," Ben Stiller , who starred in, co-wrote and directed "Tropic Thunder," said in a statement. "I am honored to be working with him."
Tom will produce the film along with Ben and his Red Hour Films cohort Stuart Cornfeld after having "secured the life rights to Grossman," Paramount's announcement joked.
This excites me. Easily the best thing Cruise has done in YEARS.
