Melbourne Prepares for the Cruises

Katie Holmes, Tom Cruise, Suri Cruise Melbourne, Australia better getting ready for the frenzy surrounding the Cruises as they cruise into their city this summer. Katie Holmes and family will be there for 3 months while she shoots “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark”.

“The whole city is very excited that they are coming and they will do everything they can to make sure they feel totally at home in Melbourne," a spokesperson for Tourism Australia told

Libby Wilson, a celebrity helper (I’m not quite sure what a ‘celebrity helper’ means. What a job title huh?), is reportedly scouting properties for Tom and Katie.

The tourism spokesperson went on to say, “Melbourne is a very kids-friendly city and there will be plenty of dance schools that would love to teach Suri her ballet lessons too."

      I used to live in Melbourne, and it’s a great city. Much to do and the people are very open and friendly. It will be in the middle of Winter there, though, and will be cold and raining a great deal.

    • What?

      From JJ:”In the upcoming action comedy Wichita, Tom Cruise will play a secret agent who pops in and out of the life of a single woman, according to Variety.

      The 46-year-old actor will costar alongside Cameron Diaz in the James Mangold-directed film.

      Wichita is scheduled fora summer 2010 release.”

      Does anyone know anything about this? Also, what about his other announced projects that he working on? I would think with all the projects listed on his IMBD page as in production, etc., he will not have time to go to Australia unless he is filming there as well.
