Tom Cruise Planning Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid Remake

According to the Daily Express, Tom Cruise is looking to remake Butch Cassidy and the Sundance, starring himself as Sundance and John Travolta as Cassidy. The article says that Cruise got the blessing of Paul Newman, who played Cassidy in the original. A source who is close to Cruise said this:
"Butch and Sundance is a labour of love for Tom," a source said. "He was eight years old when he saw the original and it made an impression that has stayed with him all his life. He can't wait to get to work."
