Minority Report director Steven Spielberg is joining forces with leading man Tom Cruise once more - on an adaptation of HG WELLS's classic THE WAR OF THE WORLDS.

The Hollywood heavyweights, who worked together on MINORITY REPORT, will start shooting the new adaptation of the sci-fi novel, which terrified radio listeners in 1938 thanks to Orson Welles's spooky version - in late 2005.

Already on board is JURASSIC PARK screenwriter David Koepp, who will work under both men's jurisdiction as Cruise is also producing the project.
