Tom Cruise planning to watch Man Utd vs Man City derby

8 December 2012

London, Dec. 8 (ANI): Tom Cruise has set himself a Mission Impossible-style assignment - getting to Friday's big derby match between the Manchester rivals.

The 50-year-old actor has been urged to see the Manchester City versus Manchester United derby by his footie ace pal David Beckham.

Cruise is so desperate to watch the game that he may even travel by a helicopter or jet to get there.

Currently he is 200 miles from City's Etihad Stadium - filming scenes in Hertfordshire for new movie 'All You Need Is Kill' - so he got his staff to spend the last five days planning the trip with the stadium officials.

"Tom's filming on Saturday, the match is a lunchtime kick-off and he has to be in London for the premiere of his film Jack Reacher on Monday," the Sun quoted a source as saying.

"We've been working out whether to get a jet or helicopter or go by road. Tom's on a very tight schedule, but is desperate to see the match. Becks told him, 'If there's one game you see, this is it.' So he's been buzzing to get up to Manchester.

"He won't be shouting for United or City. He'll be there as a fan of sport. The only thing that may put a spanner in the works is if filming over-runs," the source said.

Cruise plans to watch the derby with actor Robert Duvall, 81.

"Tom doesn't want his appearance turning the event into a circus," the source added. (ANI)
