Domhnall Gleeson, Sarah Wright, Jesse Plemons, E. Roger Mitchell Caleb Landry Jones, and Lola Kirke will be starring in “Mena” as well.
The script, which was submitted by Gary Spinelli to The Black List , will follow the real life escapades of the late Barry Seal, a hustler and pilot who is recruited by the CIA to “bring down a burgeoning communist threat in Central America”.
Cruise will be playing Seal (real name:Adler Berriman Seal), who “caused huge political problems for the Reagan administration” when he was still living. He eventually met a gruesome death in 19th February 1986, when he was shot to death in Louisiana by 3 Colombian assassins.
In other news, Warner Bros. has also released the release dates for 2 comedy films, “Keanu” and “Going In Style”.
“Keanu” will be slated for release on 22th April 2016. Don’t be fool by its name because the movie is not the biopic of certain actor. Starring Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, the movie is actually named after a cat of the same name. It is about the cat that was “abducted by a street gang”, prompting its human owners to go “undercover as drug dealers”.
Peter Atencio (of “Key & Peele” fame) is helming the movie, which will go head-to-head with Universal’s “The Huntsman”, sequel to the 2012’s “Snow White and the Huntsman“.
“Going In Style” will have several big name actors starring in it, namely Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, and Alan Arkin.
