If you think Tom Cruise has achieved his greatest possible cinematic triumph, the Hollywood veteran has shocked us yet again with an idea that is out of this world – quite literally!
The 60-year-old star has allegedly teamed up with ‘The Bourne Identity’ director Doug Liman on a movie that involves space filming. It is reported that Cruise came up with the concept in 2020 before the Covid-19 pandemic suspended everyday lives.
According to reports, Cruise and Liman have contacted Universal Filmed Entertainment Group (UFEG) on the idea that the actor will take a rocket up to the International Space Station.
Dame Donna Langley, Universal studio’s chairwoman, said, “Tom Cruise is taking us to space. He’s taking the world to space, and that’s the plan,” Ms. Langley told the outlet. We have a great project in development with Tom that does contemplate him taking a rocket to the Space Station. And hopefully, he will become the first civilian to do a space walk outside the International Space Station. He will play a down-on-his-luck guy who finds himself in the position of being the only person who could save Earth.” Langley previously worked with Cruise on ‘Edge of Tomorrow.’
No one knows how the crew will go about in space, but Cruise would indeed employ the ISS as the background for the movie.
Langley also gave us a short synopsis: “He will play a down-on-his-luck guy who finds himself in the position of being the only person who could save Earth.”
The film is still in its dream phase and hasn’t begun production yet. Cruise would be the first movie star to shoot in outer space on the International Space Station if and when the movie gets off the ground.
From scaling cliffs, flying planes, and abseiling down the tallest building in the world, Tom Cruise is indubitably one of the most daring actors the world has ever seen, and if he goes to space, it would be an impressive feat.
