How about a big screen theatrical version of the beloved family drama “Little House on the Prairie?”

“Super producer Scott Rudin was super passionate about the project last summer and suggested megastars Angelina Jolie and Tom Cruise for the iconic roles of Ma and Pa Ingalls, according to hacked Sony emails published by WikiLeaks,” reports the New York Daily News.

At the time Jolie replied in an email, according to the Daily News, “I love ‘Little House’ but don’t think I am the best person to do it. You have a very special project and a brilliant script and I am beyond grateful you would give me a chance to consider it.”

Rudin was also able to get Cruise’s agent to say he’d look at the script, the story notes.

As of now the movie is still in development, the story says.
