Tom Cruise’s Les Grossman Movie Is Happening

Grossman 300Les Grossman, the character first played by Tom Cruise in his brilliant cameo in 2008’s Tropic Thunder and then reprised at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, is still getting his own movie.

Not only that, but according to MTV the movie already has a script, which means it might be closer than previously thought.

“When MTV News caught up with Saturday Night live funnyman Bill Hader at the first-ever Comedy Awards, he told us that the Les movie is written and is getting closer to arriving in theatres,” says on

“Hader, who appeared in a few Les Grossman skits in anticipation for the 2010 MTV Movie awards, confirmed that his friend, actor/writer Michael Bacall (who previously penned Scott Pilgrim vs The World and is currently working on the upcoming remake of Fright Night) ‘wrote it and he’s told me some really funny scenes from it.’”

Hader doesn’t know any specifics about the film – “I just know the broad strokes. Michael just telling me ‘I just wrote this scene where blah blah blah and I’m like ‘Oh that’s funny, man!’” – or when the film will be released but the one thing he does know? “It’s gonna be great.”
