Downey Jr to join Cruise on screen?

Robert Downey Jr could be starring in El Presidente

Robert Downey Jr could be teaming up with Tom Cruise on action comedy El Presidente.

The Iron Man star is rumoured to be in talks to play a former US President (and bumbling sleaze), who is forced to go on the run with an overzealous Secret Service agent (a role Tom is attached to) when his life is put in danger, reported Vulture.

Jay Roach, who directed the Austin Powers films and Meet The Parents, is considering taking control of the presidential comedy.

Jack Nicholson was previously linked to the role of the ex-leader.

Robert - who recently reprised his superhero role in Avengers Assemble - has a few projects lined up in the near future, including Iron Man 3 and a rumoured Avengers sequel.

Tom will next be seen showing off his singing skills in Rock Of Ages, the big-screen adaptation of the hit musical, before returning to action in the thriller One Shot and sci-fi thriller Oblivion.
