Tom Cruise will be Van Helsing!
Tom Cruise has starred as a vampire before (Lestat from Interview with a Vampire), so when will he take on the role of a werewolf? Well, if the rumors are true, he’ll be getting on the big screen again with vampires (and maybe werewolves) soon! He won’t be playing a werewolf, but rather the rumor is that he’ll be starring in a movie in the role of none-other-than the vampire hunter Van Helsing!
They say that the remake of the movie Van Helsing is coming soon, and Tom Cruise is scheduled to star as the titular charachter. The remake was announced last year by Universal Pictures, and is expected to be a reimagining of the Van Helsing character made famous for movie-goers in 2004 by Hugh Jackman. They say it will be more “grounded in reality” but that is about all the information that has been released as to the plot. There is no information yet as to what else the plot of the movie will be or if there in fact will actually be werewolves (there were in the Van Helsing with Hugh Jackman).
So, while we’re waiting to see Tom Cruise slay some vampires, looks like we’ll have to wait even longer to see him as a werewolf.
He did however get coay with Werewolves of London in one of his older movies. Check this out – Tom Cruise dancing to the song Werewolves of London in the movie Color of Money. He even does a few howls “aaaoooooss!” at 1:48 and 2:20.
