Mission Possible: Reviving Movie Studio

For a studio with a hallowed past, the star power of Tom Cruise and producing partner Paula Wagner at the helm, and a $500 million bankroll, United Artists seemed supercharged for a comeback.

But the studio is off to a shaky start.

Its first film, the somber political tale "Lions for Lambs" from director Robert Redford and starring Cruise, Redford and Meryl Streep, opened poorly at the box office and may not recoup its $35 million investment.

Its third film, the Vietnam war story "Pinkville," from director Oliver Stone, has been delayed because of the current strike by TV and film writers.
