Move over Zaslav, looks like Maverick will be the top dog on the Warner Bros. Discovery lot. Tom Cruise signed a deal with Warner Bros. Discovery which will see the pint-sized action star developing and producing theatrical films with the studio. The “strategic partnership” is hoping to see a mixture of original films and flashy blockbuster franchises that will also star the Mission Impossible actor. Not only will Cruise get top-billing on the films released in the joint venture, but he and his producing outlet C/W Productions will have offices on the WBD lot in Burbank. Hopefully the first movie in the venture will be a meta heist film releasing Batgirl from the vaults for all to see.
Elsewhere on the WBD lot, someone on their social media team is celebrating The Sopranos 25th anniversary in ways that would drive many men to take a visit to Jennifer Melfi. In conjunction with their streamer Max, WBD launched an official Sopranos TikTok account with a new series “Sopranos in: 25.” The series features insanely condensed recaps of the show in–you guessed it–25 second videos with the hopes of introducing a new generation to Tony and the gang. The streamer also used more conventional outlets, namely the Max app, to highlight never-before-seen footage and behind-the-scenes content within their 25th Anniversary collection for the iconic show.
