Tom Cruise and Robert Downey Jr. eyed for El Presidente

Jay Roach might direct El Presidente for Warner Bros, based on a script from Parks and Recreation‘s Dan Goor.

According to Vulture, the project concerns a demoted Secret Service agent stuck defending America’s worst former president, described as “a bumbling sleaze.”

Tom Cruise is being eyed for the part of the agent, while Robert Downey Jr. is wanted to play the prez.

Though Roach directed the promising election comedy The Campaign and the wonderful telemovie Recount, he’s best known for helming the Austin Powers and Meet the Parents films.
