At this point, everybody in Hollywood considers Tom Cruise one of the main oracles inside the film industry. Steven Spielberg himself appeared praising the ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ star giving him flowers for ‘saving the movie theatre industry’. Whoever runs into him that is involved in the industry will always have the urge to show him their projects, his opinion matters to everybody at this point. Cruise has prided himself for committing to creating the most entertaining movies he can possibly make. The ‘Mission: Impossible’ franchise is a perfect testament to that mantra of his. With that in mind, new Warner head huncho David Zaslav met with Cruise back in January.

However, this changes completely when Tom Cruise himself calls you to congratulate you for directing this film. That’s exactly what happened to Muschietti, according to The Hollywood Reporter. In the surprise call, Tom Cruise allegedly said: “This is everything you want in a movie. It’s the king of film we need now.” Talk about high praise…
