Peter Jackson's spokesman Matthew Dravitzki confirmed that Cruise had visited the director in Wellington yesterday, but said the Hollywood superstar flew out of New Zealand this morning en route to Melbourne where his wife Katie Holmes is filming horror movie Don't Be Afraid of the Dark.

"He stopped to say 'hi'. It was just a social visit," Mr Dravitzski said.

It was not to discuss any film projects.

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark is produced by Mexican film-maker Guillermo del Toro, who is also directing The Hobbit in Wellington.
