Tom Cruise to Star, Produce Re-Imagined 'Van Helsing' from 'Transformers' Writers

Universal continues to dig through its vault of movies to find titles to reboot/re-imagine/remake. The latest project comes in the form of Tom Cruise as Van Helsing.

Yes, the 2004 film that starred Hugh Jackman and Kate Beckinsale is getting the re-imagining treatment from Transformers writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. Kurtzman and Orci are also writing the script for another recently announced Universal reboot, The Mummy. They're also the co-writers for the upcoming Star Trek sequel and have also penned scripts for Mission: Impossible III, Cowboys & Aliens and a number of TV series including Fringe, Hawaii Five-O and Alias.

"Alex and Roberto are extraordinarily talented writers and producers who know the value of a great story in building successful tentpole films," Universal chairman Adam Fogelson said in a statement.

Sony recently announced that the writers would also take a pass at The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Cruise will star in the titular role played by Hugh Jackman in the '04 version. No word on what this re-imagined film will be about.

For now, are you interested in seeing what the writing duo can cook up and do you buy Cruise as Van Helsing?
