Par, Cruise target Iraq war drama

Paramount Pictures and C/W partners Tom Cruise and Paula Wagner have joined the brigade of producers weighing in on the Iraq war, optioning the New York Times Magazine article by foreign correspondent Dexter Filkins titled “The Fall of the Warrior King.” Story centers on Lt. Col. Nathan Sassaman, an Army commander in Baghdad who resigned following a scandal in which men under his command caused the drowning of an Iraqi civilian. It’s unclear whether the film will take shape as a Cruise vehicle, though he’s age-appropriate to Sassaman, who’s in his early 40s.
