Tom CruiseTom Cruise is to star in a detective comedy with Ben Stiller, it has been claimed. The action hero will allegedly star alongside Stiller in an updated version of the classic comedy novels The Hardy Boys, called The Hardy Men. The movie sees the eternal teenagers finally grown up, but still up to their old tricks.

Production for the film, directed by Shawn Levy, is due to begin in October. Levy also directed Stiller's latest box office hit Night At The Museum as well as The Pink Panther and Cheaper By The Dozen.

Cruise reportedly met Stiller to discuss starring in the comedian's latest project Tropic Thunder - mocking the Mission: Impossible trilogy, in which Cruise starred as Ethan Hunt. However, Cruise will not be involved in this project.

The Top Gun star is said to see comedy as a way to rebuild his career after a run of negative publicity.
