Madness grows on Cruise

H.P. Lovecraft's novel At the Mountains of Madness will be made into an upcoming movie. However, according to Collider, director Guillermo del Toro wants Tom Cruise to play the lead role: geologist William Dyer. However, Universal wants either James McAvoy or Chris Pine.

Cruise and del Toro were going to work together on a reboot of the Van Helsing movie, although Cruise's work on Mission Impossible IV  halted this.

As for Universal's choices, Universal and Mr. Pine have worked together on Wanted, the upcoming X-men: First Class (which he will play Professor X), and rumour has it that he will also play Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit.
