No Truth to Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson Reunion in ‘El Presidente’

Truth rating: 0

By Daniel Gates


Perez Hilton and a number of other outlets rushed to post a rumor (originating on a Los Angeles Times blog) that claimed that Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson are primed to reunite for a movie called El Presidente.

The film supposedly involves Cruise as a Secret Service agent assigned to protect an ex-president played by Nicholson.

Cruise and Nicholson, of course, shared some famously tense courtroom moments in 1992’s military drama A Few Good Men.

But for now that movie will have to remain the last time the two titans co-starred.

A rep for Cruise says the El Presidente rumor is “not true.”

And a rep for Nicholson tells Gossip Cop that he’s not doing the film, either.

At least this gaffe isn’t quite as bad as the time Perez bizarrely reported that Nicholson had asked Jessica Simpson out on a date.

Would it be cliche to say Perez “can’t handle the truth”?
