Tom Cruise has been trying to get the film El Presidente off the ground since 2010, and it looks like he is making a big push to get it into production. THR reports that Doug Liman is now attached to direct the film. The two recently worked together on Edge of Tomorrow (formerly All You Need Is Kill). They are now in the process of trying to get Jack Nicholson to join the film. Cruise really wants him on board. If fact, if Nicholson doesn't do the project Cruise won't do it either.

The story is about "a straight-arrow Secret Service agent who is assigned to protect America's worst former president, an alcoholic and womanizing sleazebag who was elevated from VP when the president died. When a threat is made on his life, the duo must go on the run." Nicholson would play the president and Cruise would play the Secret Service agent. »
