Previously playing together in 'Tropic Thunder', Tom Cruise and Ben Stiller are set to play in the same movie again called 'The Hardy Men', portraying the teen supersleuths.
Tom Cruise will reunite with his "Tropic Thunder" co-star Ben Stiller to bring literary detective brothers "The Hardy Boys" to life on the big screen. Plans are afoot to bring the two Hollywood stars together again to portray the teen supersleuths in the popular books as adults in "The Hardy Men".
Director Shawn Levy, who will produce the movie, tells Starpulse.com, "I saw how well Ben and Tom got along and that's what gave me the idea of wait a second, I've got to do a movie with them together. Wait a second, let's do 'The Hardy Men' with them together. That brainchild came about because I saw their chemistry as friends."
But Levy admits it could be a while before cameras begin rolling on the film - because he's having difficulty finding the perfect storyline. He adds, "Developing a movie for a movie star is hard. Developing a movie for two movie stars is a very, very challenging enterprise. The bull's eye is small and the tone has to be exactly right. So we are still working on it."
