Tom Cruise has been signed up to star in a World War II thriller about a plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler.

The untitled film from X-Men and The Usual Suspects director Bryan Singer is being made for Cruise's film company United Artists.

The film is said to be based on a number of true stories of plots by both the Allies as well as Germans opposed to Hitler who wanted to kill the Nazi leader.

"After reading the script, Tom and I knew immediately that this was a film that we had to make," said United Artists boss and Cruise's business partner Paula Wagner.

"As an added bonus, because of Bryan Singer's involvement and Tom's admiration for him as a filmmaker, as well as the excellence of the script, the project attracted Tom as an actor. I cannot think of a more perfect combination of creative elements for our second production."
