Hollywood actor Tom Cruise is reportedly set to become a superhero in an adaptation of comic book classic Sleeper.
The Top Gun star is reportedly helping set up the movie as a project for Warner Bros. along with director Sam Raimi - with an option of starring in the film himself.
The movie will be adapted from the DC Comics/Wildstorm comic book which centres on a spy whose fusion with an alien artifact makes him immune to pain.
Cruise recently became the sole boss at United Artists films, after his partner Paula Wagner quit. However, Cruise's deal allows him to continue working with other studios.
