Tom Cruise circling Mary Parent sci-fi project

'Agent 13' scribe T.S. Nowlin spec titled 'Our Name is Adam'

“Pacific Rim” producer Mary Parent is out with a sci-fi spec script by T.S. Nowlin (“Agent 13”) titled “Our Name Is Adam” to which Tom Cruise is said to be attached to topline, sources tell Variety.

Representatives for Cruise were not immediately available to comment.

Logline is being kept under wraps, but Cruise has shown a keen interest in sci-fi of late, filming Universal’s “Oblivion” and WB’s “All You Need Is Kill” back-to-back.

Cruise and Parent previously worked together on “Valkyrie,” when he was running United Artists and she was chair of MGM’s Worldwide Motion Picture Group.

Cruise is attached to approximately a half-dozen projects around town, with no frontrunner to be his next movie. They include a remake of “The Magnificent Seven” at MGM, a “Van Helsing” movie at Universal with Rupert Sanders (“Snow White and the Huntsman”) circling to direct and of course, “Mission: Impossible 5” at Paramount. Thesp, who is repped by CAA and Greenberg Glusker, next stars in Christopher McQuarrie’s thriller “Jack Reacher,” which Par will release Dec. 21.

Parent’s Disruption Entertainment banner has a first-look deal at Paramount, where she’s currently producing Darren Aronofsky’s Biblical tale “Noah.” She also has Guillermo del Toro’s “Pacific Rim” in post-production at Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures.

Nowlin previously wrote the sci-fi action pic “Agent 13,” which Universal won in a bidding war back in April. Rupert Wyatt is attached to direct and Charlize Theron is attached to star. Nowlin also wrote “Wild Guns” for Gianni Nunnari’s Hollywood Gang Prods. Scribe is repped by WME and Caliber Media.
