Cruise and Diaz Thriller Titled Knight & Day


Variety reports that the James Mangold-directed action-comedy starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz now has an official title – Knight & Day. The 20th Century Fox film had previously been known as “Wichita” and “Trouble Man.”

The movie, currently filming in Boston, also stars Peter Sarsgaard, Viola Davis, Olivier Martinez, Paul Dano, Maggie Grace and Mark Blucas.

Knight & Day centers on a lonely woman (Diaz) whose seemingly harmless blind date suddenly turns her life upside-down when a super spy (Cruise) takes her on a violent worldwide journey to protect a powerful battery that holds the key to an infinite power source.

Mangold wrote the script with Scott Frank. The studio is planning a July 2, 2010 release.
