Tom Cruise wants to make a movie with David Beckham. The ‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol’ star is currently on the lookout for an action packed script for him and his close pal as he thinks soccer superstar David would be great at kicking butt on screen. He said: “I’d love to do action movies with Beckham. He would be great, he could kick ass. David would have to teach me to play soccer first.” A source close to the star added: “David has been linked with Hollywood a number of times but Tom is the only one he’d ever take up, he thinks Tom is a legend.”
Tom was in London for the UK premiere of ‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol’ at London’s BFI IMAX cinema last night (13.12.1) where he claimed his alter-ego Ethan Hunt is a better spy than James Bond and Jason Bourne.
When asked who is better out of the three screen action men, he told BANG Showbiz: “Of course it’s Ethan. I don’t know what to say, I love Bond and I love Bourne but, Ethan’s different you know? It’s a different experience. We have the gadgets, and you know, I do make the ‘Mission’ films!”
When pushed on whether Hunt could take Bond in a fight, he laughed: “I don’t know.”
Cruise carried out his trademark meet and greet with fans on the red carpet and signed countless autographs for those who had waited in the cold to get a glimpse of their idol.
He was joined at the glitzy event by his co-stars Simon Pegg, Paula Patton and Lea Seydoux and director Brad Bird.
Other stars at the premiere included ‘X-Files’ actress Gillian Anderson, model Caprice, Simon Cowell’s ex-girlfriend Sinitta and ‘Top Gear’ host Jeremy Clarkson.
