Tim Robbins and Miranda Otto are in talks to join Tom Cruise in his anticipated movie War of the Worlds.

Robbins is in negotiations to play astronomer OGILVY in the STEVEN SPIELBERG-directed adaptation of HG WELLS' classic novel, while Otto would play the wife of Cruise's character. I AM SAM star Dakota Fanning is set to appear as their daughter.

Paramount Pictures put the project on the fast track in August (04) - with just 10 weeks of pre-production in order to meet a mid-November (04) start date.

Cruise has delayed production on his movie MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 3 until at least next summer (05) to allow him time to work on the project.
