No Baddie Role for Tom Cruise in 'Shrek Goes Fourth'


Tom Cruise


The actor's representative has thrown cold water to the recent rumor putting Cruise on the line-up for Shrek's villain in its prequel film.

Tom Cruise won't be lending his voice to the green ogre's villain in "Shrek Goes Fourth". His representative Jeff Raymond has debunked the speculation ignited earlier through E! Online stating simply and without further explanation, "As of today, there is no truth to the Tom Cruise-Shrek 4 rumor." On the other hand, DreamWorks have declined to give any comment.

Back on September 4, Cinema Blend sparked speculation that the "War of the Worlds" star may be on the run to give voice to one of the villains in the next installment of the Ogre comedic tale. At the time, the site pointed out that director Mike Mitchell, who is attached to the project, is rumored to be "something of a Tom Cruise fan".

The fourth installment of the hit animation movies from DreamWorks, "Shrek", "Goes Fourth" is most likely to be a prequel. It allegedly will be dealing with the origin story of the titular character, where this green ogre came from or how he happened to live in a swamp on his own without any other family members.

Said to be in the early production stages, it will have some of its original cast ensemble, including Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz and Eddie Murphy, return to voice the main characters once again. Scripted by Tim Sullivan and Josh Klausner, it is expected to hit theaters on May 21, 2010.
