Cruise and David Ellison will produce along with Don Granger, Paula Wagner, Dana Goldberg and Gary Levinsohn through Mutual Film Company and Cruise/Wagner Productions.

Duvall just wrapped production on two projects, Billy Bob Thorton’s “Jayne Mansfield’s Car” and the indie “Mississippi Wild.”

He is repped by ICM.
