Tom Cruise wings into Colombian Amazon

BOGOTA: Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise, fresh off his latest “Mission: Impossible” hit, was in Colombia filming scenes for a new film in a remote Amazon basin region, military sources said Monday.

Cruise, 53, was “working on scenes for an upcoming film about the life of one of Pablo Escobar’s pilots,” said Major Cristian Caballero of Jungle Army Batallion 50.

The movie is based on the life of US pilot Barry Seal, who worked for the legendary Colombian drug kingpin who was killed in Medellin in December 1993.
