Tom Cruise wants to make a movie with Beckham

Los Angeles – Tom Cruise wants to make a movie with David Beckham.

The Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol star is currently on the lookout for an action-packed script for him and his close pal as he thinks soccer superstar Beckham would be great at kicking butt on screen.

He said: “I’d love to do action movies with Beckham. He would be great. He could kick ass. David would have to teach me to play soccer first.”

A source close to the star added: “David has been linked with Hollywood a number of times, but Tom is the only one he’d ever take up. He thinks Tom is a legend.”

Ethan Hunt vs Bond vs Bourne

Tom was in London for the UK premiere of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol at London’s BFI IMAX cinema on Tuesday, where he claimed his alter ego, Ethan Hunt, is a better spy than James Bond and Jason Bourne.

When asked who is better out of the three screen action men, he told BANG Showbiz: “Of course it’s Ethan. I don’t know what to say, I love Bond and I love Bourne, but Ethan’s different, you know?

It’s a different experience. We have the gadgets and, you know, I do make the Mission films!” When pushed on whether Hunt could take Bond in a fight, he laughed: “I don’t know."

Cruise carried out his trademark meet and greet with fans on the red carpet, and signed countless autographs for those who had waited in the cold to get a glimpse of their idol.

He was joined at the glitzy event by his co-stars Simon Pegg, Paula Patton and Lea Seydoux, and director Brad Bird.

Other stars at the premiere included The X-Files actress Gillian Anderson, model Caprice, Simon Cowell’s ex-girlfriend, Sinitta, and Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson.
