Tom Cruise Certainly Has His Fingers in a Lot of Pies at the Moment

Tom Cruise hasn’t really been popping up that much over the years, sure he’s done the odd one such as Oblivion in 2013, Edge of Tomorrow in 2014 and Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation last year. But it seems there is no holding the man back when it comes to huge roles still to come this year and the next.

Personally I think he’s looking a little too old and withered to be running around in action movies, but I know his massive array of fans will disagree. So what movies does he have upcoming in 2016 and 2017?

Jack Reacher: Never go Back:

Set four years since the events of the first movie, Jack Reacher is returning to the HQ of his old military unit. He is now accused of  homicide, and finds out that it is only a part of something bigger than he thought before. This movie was directed by and will be hitting the big screen October 21st this year.

Cast Includes:

Tom Cruise (Jack Reacher), Cobie Smulders (Susan Turner), Aldis Hodge (Espin), Patrick Heusinger (The Hunter),  Austin Hebert (Prudhomme), Robert Catrini (Colonel Moorcroft) Robert Knepper (General Harkness)

American Made:

This crime/thriller movie is based on the true story of pilot Barry Seal. Barry transported contraband for the CIA and the Medellin cartel in the 1980s. The movie is directed by , and hits cinema’s September 2017.

Cast Includes:

Tom Cruise (Barry Seal), Sarah Wright (Lucy Seal), Domhnall Gleeson (Monty Schafer), Jayma Mays (Dana Sibota), Jesse Plemons (Sheriff Downing), Lola Kirke (Judy Downing), Lara Grice (Female Reporter), Frank Licari (Special Agent Franks), Alex Quarles (Barry and Lucy Seal’s 3-year-old son), Jed Rees (Louis Finkle), Caleb Landry Jones (Bubba), Connor Trinneer (George W. Bush).

The Mummy (2017):

Set in London, an ancient queen whose destiny was unjustly taken from her is awakened in the present day. Safe to say, she is not happy about being entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, and seeks revenge.

Cast Includes:

Tom Cruise (Tyler Colt),  Annabelle Wallis (Jenny Halsey), Sofia Boutella (The Mummy), Courtney B. Vance (Colonel Gideon Forster), Russell Crowe (Dr. Henry Jekyll), Javier Botet (Set), Selva Rasalingam (King Menehptre), Dylan Smith (Lorenzo Montanari), Rez Kempton (Foreman).

There is also a Mission Impossible 6 in the works , so as you can see he’s a very busy man at the moment.
