:mad: Ive heard a rumour that Hollywood is currently remaking the film "Battle of Britain", where Tom Cruise is playing the lead role as an American Fighter Ace flying for the RAF.
OH PLEASE KNOW!!!!!!!
I can just see it, Tom Cruise saving Great Britain from the onslaught of the Luftwaffe all by himself, which means America saves the world again.
SOMEBODY OUT THERE PLEASE TELL ME THIS AINT REALLY GONNA HAPPEN, AND THAT ITS JUST RUMOUR, PLEASE PLEASE?????????!!!!!!!!!!!!! :mad: :spank:
yes its true, first heard about it a few months ago, in fact. yes it is quite an idiotic premise, but thats what hollywood's all about.
If that so, i like to see Vall" iceman"Kilmer as a Top Crack Luftwaffe ACE, who kicks young Cruise his butt.:lol:
It's true AND it's offtopic.

They always fish out special stories like this. Can't they make more movies like The Longest Day or A Bridge Too Far where the whole battle is portrayed through the eyes of many people who were there, whether it be civilian, engineers, paratroops, donkeys, pilots.
Well Hollywood is going to have to lie its ass off (as usual) to make a feature film from Billy's career, which was quite short, but he is cedited with downing 6 cabbage crates. What ho Chaps!
hmmmm......*remembers first hour of Pearl Harbor*
