Jackman took on the role of vigilante monster hunter Gabriel Van Helsing in the hit 2004 horror film but it appears Cruise will be now taking over in a "re-imagining" of the franchise.

Universal Studios bosses have signed a two-year deal with Transformers screenwriting duo Alex Kurtzman and Robert Orci, who will pen a new script and Cruise is already attached to star and produce.

The original film also featured Kate Beckinsale. It is not known if she will return for the new movie.
