    Jack Nicholson and Tom Cruise reunion ?

    Jack Nicholson and Tom Cruise reunion ?

    Rumours are going around that Jack Nicholson and Tom Cruise might be sharing the big screen again.

    The two A-listers, who famously squared off in a courtroom in the 1992 blockbuster "A Few Good Men",  could be teaming and going on the run in  "El Presidente", late-night writer Dan Goor's action comedy about a dedicated Secret Service agent assigned to protect a bumbling and degenerate ex-president.

    Warner Bros. has made an offer to Jack Nicholson for the presidential part, while Tom Cruise has attached himself to the project as the agent, according to several people familiar with the film. The studio could not immediately be reached for comment.

    The potential pairing of these top stars, which has piqued Hollywood in recent days, is also likely to tantalize fans. In Rob Reiner's "A Few Good Men", Tom Cruise, as lieutenant judge's advocate Daniel Kaffee, defends two court-martialed Marines and famously questions Jack Nicholson as Col. Nathan Jessep, who volleys back with the classic line, "You can't handle the truth."

    The Reiner movie became a cultural phenomenon and drew $243 million worldwide as well as a best picture Oscar nomination.

    Attachments and offers of course are not legally binding, and there's no guarantee that the movie will move forward with these stars. News that Warner Bros. had bought and is developing the script was first reported Monday in The Wrap.

    In "El Presidente", the Cruise and Nicholson characters, while opposites in temperament, wouldn't be antagonists — they'd actually be on the run together when a threat is made on the life of the ex-president. But Nicholson would get to play a colorful, flawed older man against Cruise's devoted idealist. Now that's a truth we've handled before.
