Tom Cruise, Reese Witherspoon, and a whole gaggle of actors may star in PAPER WINGS

So Tom Cruise, Will Smith, Jenna Elfman, Tom Skerritt, and Tate Donovan walk into a bar...sounds like the start of a bad Scientologist joke, doesn't it? But comedy became reality when these actors, along with Anna Kendrick, Milo Ventimiglia, Chad Michael Murray, Eric Dane, Tom Arnold, and Johnny Galecki, were seen leaving a restaurant called Saddle Ranch in West Hollywood on Tuesday morning.

Apparently, the actors were all there to attend a table read for the film PAPER WINGS, a film about a championship-winning bull rider that falls in love with a budding country singer, a role Reese Witherspoon is rumored to fill the boots of. If WALK THE LINE proved anything, it's that that little gal can sing! Who would play the bull rider is unknown, but something tells me Tom Cruise may lasso that one. The actor has been actively looking for other films to star in should MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 4 come under self-destruct mode.A rep for Overbrook Entertainment (Smith's production hood that will produce the film) released a statement to Access Hollywood regarding the table read: "Please note that any actor’s presence at this table read does not mean that they have officially signed onto this project.”

No one has signed on to helm the project but director, and frequent Smith collaborator, Gabriele Muccino (SEVEN POUNDS, THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS) has been approached.
