Cruise, Cruz Bring Romance to Rome
With their science fiction thriller "Minority Report" already wrapped and set to open in June, Tom Cruise and director Steven Spielbergnow plan to reunite to make a World War II drama, "Ghost Soldiers," about survivors of a Japanese prison camp, reports Variety. The script is reportedly still being prepared. Meanwhile, in Rome, the leading man, 39, and his "Vanilla Sky" costar Penelope Cruz, 27, continued a European publicity tour for their movie by speaking with reporters in Rome on Thursday, reports Reuters. "I'm a romantic, I believe in love," the twice-divorced Cruise told the assembled. "I believe in the eternal nature of love, that is what I walked away with from this film." "Vanilla Sky," which received mostly negative reviews in the U.S., concerns the amorous adventures of a frequently shirtless New York publisher. Cruise wanted to make sure that no one confused his onscreen romance with Cruz with the one they purport to be enjoying off-screen. "My relationship with Penelope, although it makes great headlines, is something that is very special to me, something that I am very happy about," said Cruise. "But it is very different from David and Sofia, two characters who we are playing in the film." Added Cruz: "I have nothing more to say about that, we have nothing to hide, we are happy, and I think everyone understands that."
