Cruise eyes trio of roles

Tom Cruise may be ready to get back to work. Cruise is looking at three pics: two from majors (Warner Bros. and Fox), and one that’s being mobilized independently. The indie appears to be the favorite: “Lions for Lambs,” a political drama revolving around a platoon of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. Scripted by Matthew Carnahan (“State of Play”), the project is shaping up with Robert Redford likely to direct as well as play a role. Cruise is being courted to play a congressman and Meryl Streep for a role as a journalist. Cruise is also eyeing “The Ha-Ha,” a Chuck Leavitt-scripted adaptation of a Dave King novel at WB. The actor would play a Gulf War vet rendered mute by his injuries who’s charged with the care of a 9-year-old whose mother goes AWOL. The actor’s also been talking to helmer Spike Lee about “Selling Time,” a Fox 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.
