What Does Tom Cruise Plan On Doing for the Next Decade With Warner Bros.?

Tom Cruise has recently struck a deal with Warner Bros. Despite having a long-standing relationship with Paramount, the actor chose WB for the security that Paramount wasn’t able to provide.

Thus, along with WB, sources reveal he plans to launch another big-budget saga. The actor already has several successful ones in his roster and wants to add one last blockbuster franchise to his list that will explode at the box office.
