Tom Cruise Set to Hogtie Reese Witherspoon

Woah! Tom Cruise as a rodeo champ? You all can just let that image run through your head. Now, try to do it without thinking of the word "gay." Snap button open-collar Western shirt, bucking horse, stirrups and a rope?

You can't do it, can you? Yeah. Me neither.

In the movie this rodeo champ would fall in love with an up-and-coming country singer, who'd be played by Reese Witherspoon, who is just going to wear that typecasting out (in addition to Walk the Line, she signed on to Pioneer Woman earlier this week).

Will Smith's Overbook shingle is setting it up, and the LA Times speculates that Gabriele Muccino (Seven Pounds, Pursuit of Happyness) could direct. That, of course, means that Paper Wings is probably a weeper. And my guess is that Tom Cruise's character dies in the end. Mauled by a bull, no doubt, belying his fantasy death: mauled by a bear.
