American Made (September 29)
What It Is: Based on a true story, American Made depicts the life of Barry Seal, a TWA pilot who became a drugs and weapons smuggler for the Medellin cartel, while also working for the DEA, eventually getting mixed up in the Iran-Contra scandal. Tom Cruise plays Seal, with Sarah Wright, Domhnall Gleeson, and Jesse Plemons co-starring.
If You Need Convincing: Cruise’s last project with American Made director Doug Liman was the fantastic sci-fi thriller Edge of Tomorrow. The role of Seal, who seems anti-heroic at best, could be a fun departure for the star, who has largely stuck to genre films in recent years (he’ll also star in The Mummy this summer).
As we prevoiusly posted a few weeks back the title for Sarah Wright Olsen’s new movie with Tom Cruise changed from MENA to AMERICAN MADE.
Now we just got the news that the release date also has been pushed back. Originally it would have premiered on the 6th January in 2017 but now the date is 29th September, 2017 (btw just one day after Sarah’s birthday).

Mena (2016) set to start filming in mid-May. Sarah Wright Olsen plays Lucy Seal, Barry Seal’s (Tom Cruise) wife.
The Cherokee County town of Ball Ground, GA, located north of Atlanta, has been chosen as the location for Mena, the upcoming Doug Liman film that is set to star Tom Cruise.
The main filming locations for the movie will be on Gilmer Ferry Road, between Civic Drive and Old Canton Road, as well as other locations around the city, Cherokee County, Pickens County and Roswell. Filming is expected to begin in mid-May.
The movie tells the true story of Barry Seal, a pilot, gun runner and drug trafficker, who transported contraband for the CIA and the Medellin cartel during the 80s. The title refers to Mena, Arkansas, “where a lot of the illegal activity took place under the noses of Presidents Reagan and Bush and then-Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton.”
Sarah Wright Olsen (Marry Me) has been cast opposite Tom Cruise in Mena, the drug-pilot drama from Imagine Entertainment and Universal Pictures. It’s a fact-based tale about Barry Seal (Cruise), a pilot who was a gun runner and drug trafficker who transported contraband for the CIA and the Medellin cartel during the 1980s. The title refers to Mena, AK, where a lot of the illegal activity took place under the noses of Presidents Reagan and Bush and then-Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton. Wright will play Barry’s wife Lucy Seal, a former homecoming queen-turned-homemaker who in the beginning is completely unaware of her husband’s exploits. Wright stars on NBC’s Marry Me, and other recent credits include Mixology and Parks And Recreation and the features Walk Of Shame and 21 & Over. She is repped by Ellen Meyer Management.
