Doug Liman has finished filming on the sci-fi film Edge of Tomorrow, and is now looking to reunite with Tom Cruise on El Presidente, a movie that he's been trying to get made for 3 years. Which is odd because it's a great premise, and it's Tom Cruise.
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 never won a presidential election but was elevated from VP when the president died.” After a posed threat the two most go on a road trip and hi-jinks ensue. Once again this premise sells itself and it seems like this is something that Tom Cruise could finance without any trouble, so it's curious as to why it's taken so long to get started.
One of the things that might have slowed up production is that Tom Cruise seems »

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. »

Do you want an "A Few Good Men" reunion? You can't handle an "A Few Good Men" reunion. Tom Cruise and Warner Bros. are attempting to woo Jack Nicholson to join the actor in the Doug Liman-directed comedy "El Presidente." "El Presidente" is a road trip comedy in which a straight-laced Secret Service agent (Cruise) has to protect a drunken, misogynistic former U.S. president who is on the run from a death threat. Cruise and Liman reportedly visited Nicholson -- who hasn't been onscreen since 2010 -- at his house in order to talk him into taking the role of the president. According »

We haven't heard anything about the action thriller El Presidente since 2010 when Tom Cruise was attached to the project and the actor was trying to get the likes of Jack Nicholson and even Robert Downey Jr. involved in the project with Jay Roach (Game Change, The Campaign) directing. Now Cruise is back with a vengeance trying to get the film off the ground at Warner Bros. again, and this time he has his Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman at the helm, and the two are making a last ditch effort to get Nicholson involved in the project which would mark their first big screen reunion since A Few Good Men back in 1992. For those who don't know, the story follows a dedicated Secret Service agent (Cruise) assigned to protect a bumbling and degenerate ex-president (Nicholson) with apparently hilarious, yet quite dangerous, results. The unlikely duo would find themselves on »

After working together on the upcoming sci-fi flick Edge of Tomorrow, Doug Liman and Tom Cruise are teaming up again to make a comedy for Warner Bros. titled El Presidente, according to THR. The film would have its leading man playing a Secret Service agent whose job it is to look after a disgraced ex-President. Sounds pretty bland, but here’s the kicker. Cruise apparently will not do the film unless his A Few Good Men co-star Jack Nicholson signs on to play the President.
Though the retired actor hasn’t agreed to do it just yet, he is reading the script and Cruise is making a “last-ditch effort” to convince him to take the role. Nicholson hasn’t appeared on screen since 2010′s horrid How Do You Know, so it will be interesting to see if Cruise can bring him out of his retirement.

22 Jump Street: Channing Tatum, currently filming the comedy sequel 22 Jump Street, was inspired by Jean-Claude Van Damme's awesome "epic splits" TV spot to make his own version, with somewhat different results. 22 Jump Street is rolling toward release on June 13, 2014. [Channing Tatum via Coming Soon] El Presidente: Tom Cruise wants to reteam with Jack Nicholson for El Presidente, a comedy in which Cruise would play a "straight-arrow Secret Service agent" and Nicholson would portray a former president known as "an alcoholic and womanizing sleazebag."

Tom Cruise has been busting his hump up and down Hollywood Boulevard for sometime now in hopes to get things moving on El Presidente. The project has been in development since 2010 is yet to assemble its cast. It was originally set to be helmed by director Jay Roach and the studio hoped to get Jack Nicholson on board from the get go. Neither are currently attached to the film, which according to The Hollywood Reporter, now has Doug Liman in the directors chair and who recently completed filming Edge Of Tomorrow with Cruise.
So with the new director in hand, Cruise paid a visit to Jack Nicholson’s Hollywood home in hopes to convince the 76 year-old star to consider the role. While theres no certainty yet, Nicholson has at least agreed to read the script which was penned by Jesse Armstrong and Daniel J. Goor with a rewrite by Paul Attanasio. »

Back in 2010, "A Few Good Men" co-stars Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson were in talks to re-team for the new "El Presidente" action comedy. Two years later, Jay Roach (Meet the Parents) was on board to direct, but Nicholson was replaced by Robert Downey Jr. Now comes word that Roach is out and Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity) is in. And because Downey has exited as well, Cruise and Liman have decided to once again convince Nicholson to return. According to THR, the two men went to Nicholson's home to discuss "El Presidente." Cruise apparently told the actor that he won't do the movie without him. "El Presidente" follows an overzealous Secret Service agent (Cruise) whose work-life boundary issues get him reassigned to the inglorious task of guarding America's worst former president (Nicholson), who is a bumbling sleaze. The job suddenly becomes exciting when a threat is made on the »

Cruise wants Nicholson to play the title character in El Presidente, according to the Hollywood Reporter. In the film, which The Bourne Identity's Doug Liman is to direct, Cruise will play a straight-arrow Us Secret Service agent assigned to protect the country's worst-ever former commander-in-chief. His charge was elevated from vice-president upon the death of his predecessor, and spent much of his time in office boozing and chasing women. In the screenplay, by British comedy writer Jesse Armstrong, Daniel J Goor and Paul Attanasio, the pair are forced to go on the run when an assassination attempt is made on the former president's life. »

Back in 2010, we learned Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson might costar in El Presidente, a film about a straight-laced Secret Service agent assigned to protect America's worst former president. Three years later, the world has yet to see the A Few Good Men reunion, but Cruise is still trying to make that dream a reality. The Hollywood Reporter writes that Cruise and the film's new director Doug Liman paid a visit to Jack’s Hollywood mansion this weekend to try to convince him. “Cruise told Nicholson...that he won’t do the movie without him,” THR reports. Apparently, they only managed to get the semi-retired Nicholson to agree to read the script. Why would Nicholson say no? Playing “an alcoholic and womanizing sleazebag” of a former president sounds like a role that was tailor-made for him. »

Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson: ‘A Few Good Men’ stars to be reunited in ‘El Presidente’? Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson together again in a movie named El Presidente? Well, that’s a possibility. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cruise has been trying to convince his A Few Good Men co-star to play the title role in the comedy (for now) to be directed Doug Liman. Without naming names, the Reporter article mentions "sources" that claim Cruise wouldn’t do the movie without Nicholson. Or so he supposedly said. (Image: Demi Moore, Jack Nicholson, and Tom Cruise in A Few Good Men.) The story of a serious-minded secret service agent (Tom Cruise) assigned to protect a boozing, woman-crazy former U.S. president (Jack Nicholson), El Presidente apparently has escaped a few assassinations since casting rumors were first announced three years ago. Either that, or the president in question was »

The project has been in development since 2010, when a report surfaced that Tom Cruise was looking to team up with his A Few Good Men co-star Jack Nicholson. Three years later, Tom Cruise and Doug Liman are making one last-ditch effort to get the notoriously picky Jack Nicholson to sign on. Sources indicate that the actor and director visited Jack Nicholson's Hollywood Hills home last week, with Tom Cruise reportedly saying that he won't do the movie without Jack Nicholson.
The story follows a Secret Service agent (Tom Cruise) who is assigned to protect America's worst former President, an alcoholic womanizer who was never elected President, but was elevated from Vice President after the Commander-in-Chief died.

• Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman are reportedly courting Jack Nicholson for the Warner Bros. comedy El Presidente, about a by-the-books secret service agent assigned to protect “America’s worst former President” who boozes and womanizes with abandon.

Let's take a quick jaunt in my time travel machine all the way back in time to October 2010. At the time there was a report that there was a possibility that A Few Good Men co-stars Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson were going to team up for a comedy titled El Presidente.. The story was shut down a mere three days later, as reps for the actors said that the deal was a no go. It was the reunion we all guessed would never happen. And yet here we are more than three years later hearing that Tom Cruise is now lobbying hard for Jack Nicholson to join him in El Presidente. Doug Liman, who worked with Cruise on the upcoming sci-fi thriller Edge of Tomorrow, is now attached to direct the film, and last week he and the star went to Nicholson's home to try and persuade him to »
Tom Cruise clearly has a thing for long-gestating action comedy project El Presidente. He’s been attached since at least 2010 and has made several attempts to get former A Few Good Men co-star Jack Nicholson involved, despite the older actor’s semi-retirement and increasing pickiness about the films in which he appears. With his Edge Of Tomorrow director Doug Liman now aboard to call the shots, Cruise is making one more effort to score Nicholson’s signature on a contract.El Presidente, originally written by Daily Show veteran (and current Brooklyn Nine-Nine writer) Dan Goor and polished by In The Loop’s Jesse Armstrong and The Good German’s Paul Attanasio, finds a straight-laced Secret Service Agent (Cruise) assigned to watch over America’s worst former president (Nicholson). His charge is an alcoholic, womanizing sleaze ball who seemed destined to fester in the Vice President’s office until his boss suddenly died. »
Doug Liman has, according the The Hollywood Reporter , come aboard the Warner Bros. drama El Presidente as director. The film, first announced in 2010 , has Tom Cruise attached to star, but the actor remains reluctant to move forward unless the project can also sign his former A Few Good Men co-star Jack Nicholson. Cruise would play a Secret Service bodyguard assigned with protecting an elderly ex-president (Nicholson) after attempts are made on his life. Nicholson is now somewhat retired, having last starred in 2010's How Do You Know . That same year, attempts were made to get him to appear in an earlier iteration of the project (with Jay Roach directing), but the project then failed to materialize. El Presidente was written by Jesse Armstrong and Daniel J. Goor with »
