Doug Liman to Helm El Presidente, Starring Tom Cruise

November 19, 2013


Doug Liman has, according the The Hollywood Reporter, come aboard the Warner Bros. drama El Presidente as director. The film, first announced in 2010, has Tom Cruise attached to star, but the actor remains reluctant to move forward unless the project can also sign his former A Few Good Men co-star Jack Nicholson.

Cruise would play a Secret Service bodyguard assigned with protecting an elderly ex-president (Nicholson) after attempts are made on his life.

Nicholson is now somewhat retired, having last starred in 2010's How Do You Know. That same year, attempts were made to get him to appear in an earlier iteration of the project (with Jay Roach directing), but the project then failed to materialize.

El Presidente was written by Jesse Armstrong and Daniel J. Goor with Paul Attanasio then rewriting.
