I’m told Tom Cruise and Paula Wagner have completed that $500 million production financing arranged by Merrill Lynch for United Artists. (This had been in the works for months and months.) There should be an announcement before the end of June. As I first reported on Sunday, their new campaign to raise the profile of UA continues. The latest: Cruise and Wagner will make an “unannounced” stop at the European exhibitors confab Cinema Expo in Holland today to unveil a 5½-minute clip of Robert Redford’s Lions for Lambs, the company’s first release that also stars Tom.
