Tom Cruise sports retro look, bare chest on the set of "Mena" in metro Atlanta

Tom Cruise has begun filming his new movie "Mena," in metro Atlanta. It's shooting in north Fulton County at the moment and will also do a good bit of work in Cherokee County this summer.

The movie, set in the 1980s, calls for retro threads (and wheels) and apparently some hevage.

The plot, per imdb: “A pilot lands work for the CIA and as a drug runner in the deep South during the 1980s.”

It gets hot down here, hence his unbuttoned top, evidently.
