Cruise to Star in Van Helsing reboot

Universal announced today that they will not only be rebooting the Mummy franchise but also will be producing a reboot of the Van Helsing franchise as well. Tom Cruise has signed on to play the lead role in the Van Helsing film. Both reboots will be written by writing team extraordinaire Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. Kurtzman and Orci have written the screenplays for both the 'Star Trek' reboot but the upcoming 'Amazing Spiderman as well. But like anything with the good comes the bad, the duo is also responsible for the original 'Transformers' film as well as the dripping with shit sequel 'Revenge Of The Fallen'. As to where Cruise fits into this? Who knows. For me he's hit or miss, at this point in his career it's hard not to watch one of his films and say "Hey, that's Tom Cruise." I'm not sure a period piece about the worlds most famous vampire hunter is the best place to lose himself. But I'm betting it will be better than watching/hearing him sing 80's metal tracks.
