Justin Chatwin In Talks For 'War Of The Worlds'

Justin Chatwin is in talks to join Tom Cruise in Steven Spielberg's War of the Worlds, says the Hollywood Reporter.

The project is the big-screen adaptation of H.G. Wells' 1898 classic novel, one of the best-known alien-invasion stories.

Chatwin is said to have beat out several young actors for the part, which casts him as the son of Tom Cruise's character. Their strained relationship is a significant plot point in the film, sources said, though the script has been closely guarded.
