Tom in demand

Tom Cruise is in talks to star in three new movies.

He is set to star in Lions for Lambs, a drama revolving around a platoon of US soldiers in Afghanistan.

Robert Redford will direct the movie and Meryl Streep is in negotiations to be Cruise's co-star.

He is also in talks to star in the Danny De Vito movie, I Married a Witch, a drama about an injured Gulf War vet who is forced to care for an orphaned child.

He has also reportedly been offered a role in Spike Lee's Selling Time, a drama about a man who sells back chunks of time in his life for a chance to relive and change the worst day of his life.

According to Variety, if Cruise agrees to star in one of the pics, the project would mark the actor's first film since he and partner Paula Wagner left Paramount in August.
