According to Empire Online, Tom Cruise is still working on a deal to star in the big screen adaptation of "Iron Man."
"He's a fascinating character, but we've got to figure out how it's going to work," Cruise told Empire, "and everyone is doing a Marvel character these days. How do we make that new, create something fresh where it doesn't feel like, 'Oh, here comes another superhero story'?"
Cruise had previously optioned the property as a producer but that option has long since lapsed. No word on what sparked the renewed interest.
