Tom Cruise has signed a deal with Warner Bros. Discovery to develop and produce theatrical films, per Variety.

These new projects will be a mix of original productions and franchise films, which will feature the Academy Award winning movie star. The publication noted that the deal is not exclusive and Cruise will still have upcoming projects with Universal, Paramount, and other studios in the future.

It’s been more than 10 years since the last time Cruise did anything with Warner Bros. The actor’s last project with the studio was “Edge of Tomorrow” (2014). Other notable films he’s done with the studio include “Magnolia,” “Rock of Ages,” “Interview With the Vampire,” and “Eyes Wide Shut.” Warner Bros. was also the studio behind Cruise’s breakout hit “Risky Business” (1983).

Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy, who took over as co-chairs and CEOs of Warner Bros. Motion Picture Group in 2022, are the execs behind the deal with Cruise. David Zaslav is also being credited as he’s the one who hired De Luca and Abdy, the Variety report noted.

“We are thrilled to be working with Tom, an absolute legend in the film industry,” De Luca and Abdy said in a statement.

“Our vision, from day one, has been to rebuild this iconic studio to the heights of its glory days, and, in fact, when we first sat down with [Warner Bros. Discovery chief] David Zaslav to talk about joining the Warner Bros. Discovery team, he said to us, ‘We are on a mission to bring Warner Bros. back – we have the best resources, storytelling IP, and talent in the business – and we need to bring Tom Cruise back to Warner Bros!’”

They continued, “Today, that becomes a reality and we are one step closer to achieving our ambition. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Tom back to Warner Bros. and look forward to bringing more of his genius to life on screen in the years ahead.”

Cruise also gushed over the partnership in his own statement.


“I have great respect and admiration for David, Pam, Mike, and the entire team at Warner Bros. Discovery and their commitment to movies, movie fans, and the theatrical experience,” the “Mission: Impossible” actor said. “I look forward to making great movies together!”

Cruise is currently working on the eighth installment of the “Mission: Impossible” franchise with Paramount following the massive success of “Top Gun: Maverick” in 2022.
