Tom Cruise Got Into A Fight With Studio Executives

Bethesda Game Studios who is developing the Starfield game, announced that Tom Cruise was a part of the project, and he will be the main character in the game. However, the Minority Report actor parted ways with the sci-fi project, as Cruise, who is renowned for doing his stunts was told by the executives that his daredevil feats were not needed for the game.

The sole reason being his stunts in space would cost too much for them, which made the actor so furious with the decision that he reportedly came to blows and cut all ties with the project. A reliable insider said, 

“He [Cruise] was so beside himself that he began to glitch up the walls”, the source tells us. “It was horrifying, it was like playing Skyrim all over again, again, again… again – but in 4K.”

Since Cruise is out of the project, it will be intriguing to see what the studio will do to get a new main character for their game. However, Todd Howard has a plan which he has codenamed as ‘Nolan,’ and he has not told anyone about what this involves exactly. But one thing is for sure the game will be delayed.
