“Beginning with ‘Mission: Impossible,’ Tom Cruise has developed a talent for producing to match his extraordinary talent as an actor,” Producers Guild Presidents Donald De Line and Stephanie Allain said in a statement. “Tom approaches producing with the same meticulous attention to detail he brings to all of his professional endeavors. His commitment to telling bold, cinematic and entertaining stories has elevated the global theatrical experience and has resulted in some of the most popular motion pictures in history.”
During his five-decade career, Cruise has achieved success as an actor, producer and philanthropist, Deadline reported. His films have earned more than $11 billion at the box office worldwide, according to the entertainment news website.
