Cruise returning to Grossman role

Tom Cruise is bringing his foul-mouthed, hairy-handed Hollywood producer character Les Grossman to the big screen.

Paramount Pictures and MTV Films say they are developing a film around the fictional character that the Hollywood star brought to life in 2008's Tropic Thunder.

The 47-year-old actor reprised the role at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards, dancing on stage alongside Jennifer Lopez.

Tom and Ben Stiller are among the producers of the film. Paramount said that Tom is in talks to play Grossman.

The actor can next be seen on screen in Knight And Day, which co-stars Cameron Diaz.
