'The War Of The Worlds' Most Expensive Movie

The remake of The War of the Worlds is reportedly set to become Hollywood's most expensive blockbuster, according to UK newspaper The Sun.

The budget for the new movie will exceed the 110m it took to make Titanic.

Steven Spielberg will direct the film version of the classic HG Wells story about alien invaders and Tom Cruise will play the lead role.

However, neither will be paid any money up front. Both have chosen to take a 20% share of box office takings instead.

"No expense will be spared," an insider told the newspaper. "Spielberg wants to make it the film of the decade."
