Les Grossman saved Tom Cruise’s career. Before Cruise starred as the foul mouthed Hollywood agent – based on several real big shot agents, including one who may now have been outed as the world’s most famous rapist – he was not liked. His love of Scientology hurt him in the public sphere and he’d yet to find his groove with awesome movies like Edge of Tomorrow. That’s why it’s long been rumored, and now almost confirmed, that Cruise will return as Grossman in a sequel, of sorts, to Tropic Thunder.

Will There Be Tropic Thunder 2?
It’s still a rumor, though a strong one, that this will happen. The power player in H-Town couldn’t confirm or deny but that he wouldn’t deny is all the confirmation we need!
Tropic Thunder 2 RUMORS
Simple: Grossman will be the focus. Sure, they’ll bring in some of the other actors, like Jack Black and Ben Stiller, but this is the Les Grossman show. We’ll see all about who he is. What I’m curious about is how they handle the #metoo aspect of his character. You can’t make him an actual rapist or anything, because that’s not the sorta sympathetic character we can identify with anymore (this isn’t the 1950s, people). Maybe he’ll always be involved in situations that seem bad but really aren’t. They MUST address it, of course, but how they do so is the $64,000 question.
Possible Tropic Thunder 2 Names
- Les is More
- Iraqi Thunder
- Tropic Lightning
Who’s directing Tropic Thunder 2?
Ben Stiller. He could use the feel good fun of another go-around with a successful property. Maybe Robert Downey Jr. could step in, though, if the price was right.
Tropic Thunder 2 Writers
Justin Theroux, who is a surprisingly diverse individual, would be my pick to write Tropic Thunder 2. Him and Ben Stiller, but only after Zoolander 3.

Tropic Thunder 2 Release Date
I’m hearing a subtle word that this would come out in August of 2021, with a Netflix release before that Christmas. The world has changed, hasn’t it?

Tropic Thunder 2 Box Office
The first one did almost $200m in box office and I think this bad boy could hit $250m, if they play their cards right. And that doesn’t count all the Netflix money they’ll get.
Final Thoughts on Tropic Thunder 2
I want to see this, don’t you? Grossman was such a fun and entertaining character and I find Cruise to be endearing. He’s got such natural comedic timing and skills and it’s a shame they’re not used more often. I know he can make more money doing action but his straight up comedy is gold! I can’t wait for Tropic Thunder 2!
