The Les Grossman Movie is a Go

June 10, 2010

You heard right, people. Tom Cruise’s legendary character from Tropic Thunder is coming back to the big screen with his very own feature.

Paramount and MTV Films confirmed today that they are developing a movie based on the wild producer Tom Cruise made famous in the 2008 film Tropic Thunder. Cruise will star and produce the movie along with co-star and director Ben Stiller.

The announcement came only days after Les Grossman came out of retirement at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards to get down with Jennifer Lopez live on stage. Paramount issued a press release today saying they have “secured the life rights to Grossman.” Sounds epic, dudes.
