Entertainment - Cruise, Theron to star in remake of French thriller

LOS ANGELES (AFP) – Tom Cruise will share the screen with South African actress Charlize Theron for an American remake of 2005 French thriller "Antony Zimmer," Hollywood media reported Friday.

Directed by Indian-born Bharat Nalluri, the new version will also be the latest collaboration between Cruise and writer Christopher McQuarrie, tapped to rewrite the script.

McQuarrie co-wrote and produced "Valkyrie," Cruise's latest film set to open on Christmas Day in North America. He is also working on two other post-Valkyrie projects with Cruise, Variety magazine reported naming them as "Flying Tigers" and "The Champions."

Directed by Jerome Salle, the first "Anthony Zimmer" starred Yvan Attal and Sophie Marceau. An ordinary man is chased down by the Russian mafia and international police in a manipulative case of mistaken identity.
