The Vanilla Sky re-teaming you never asked for is here:

James Mangold is attached to direct the untitled romantic comedy formerly known as "Wichita" and "Trouble Man" at 20th Century Fox. It's eyed as a potential pairing of Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz.

Story revolves around a woman who has terrible luck with men but finds her path intertwined with that of a mysterious handsome man she meets on a blind date.

Chris Tucker and Eva Mendes were attached last year along with director Tom Dey, but that incarnation fizzled. The script was originated by Patrick O'Neill, and prior drafts have been done by Frank and Dana Fox, who wrote the Diaz starrer "What Happens in Vegas" for Fox.

"So, it's called Wichita. Or maybe Trouble Man. Both are equally applicable, even though the premise doesn't mention either Wichita or a trouble man. But there is a handsome man! You know, like a Tom Cruise type. Or Chris Tucker. Chris Tucker also would have worked as the mysterious, handsome man. Same archetype, Cruise and Tucker. Interchangeable."

You can tell a lot of thought has been put into this project.
