Liman previously directed Cruise in Edge of Tomorrow and American Made.
Action movie star Tom Cruise is going to film a movie in space with the support and help of NASA and Elon Musk’s SpaceX, and now more details about the film have come to light.
The movie will be directed by Doug Liman, who previously directed Cruise in Edge of Tomorrow and American Made. Deadline reports that Cruise and Liman came up with their idea for a movie in space together, and Liman wrote the first draft of the script.
Cruise, Liman, and others will travel to space to film the movie through a partnership with NASA, which contracts SpaceX for space travel.
There is no word yet on the plot of the space movie or its title, but Deadline reports that Liman and Cruise are optimistic that the movie will be made “in the very near future.”
Cruise is known for performing his own stunts and taking things to the next level, and he’s really going after it in a new way with this new space movie.
Cruise’s next big movie is Top Gun: Maverick, which was delayed to December due to COVID-19. Cruise wanted to fly an actual F-18 fighter jet in the movie, but the Navy said no.
