Tom Cruise going to space in 2021 to film movie with help of Elon Musk’s SpaceX, Shuttle Almanac…
An another milestone is going to be hooked.. But this time not in the Earth, Yes Director Doug Liman and Tom Cruise Were joining there hands once again For a Benchmark project.
Director Doug Liman, who directed Cruise in Edge of Tomorrow, is on board to helm a new action film that will enlist the help of NASA and SpaceX for at least some of the filming. Actor Tom Cruise doesn’t even have a script for his upcoming history-making film to be shot in space, but managed to convince Universal Pictures to shell out $200 million (nearly Rs 1500 crore) to produce it.
Deadline reports that Universal signed off on the big-budget project over a Zoom call with Cruise, writer-director Doug Liman, his frequent collaborator Christopher McQuarrie, and producer PJ van Sandwijk. Elon Musk will also be involved through his SpaceX firm.
The Space Shuttle Almanac tweeted recently that previous reports that Cruise would lead the first movie filmed in outer space on the International Space Station (ISS) are coming to fruition. The 58-year-old actor will be joined by “The Bourne Identity” director Doug Liman next year as part of Elon Musk’s Axiom SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule.
NASA is working with Tom Cruise to film the first movie shot in space, according to NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine. The details of the project aren’t clear, but Bridenstine says the film will take place aboard the International Space Station. Elon Musk have been finalized, with the trip now scheduled for 2021.
Months after reports came that Cruise was working alongside SpaceX CEO Elon Musk and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), it has been confirmed that the Hollywood star will be part of a launch next year.
Space Shuttle Almanac took to its official Twitter account on Sept. 19 to share the 2020 to 2023 International Space Station (ISS) manifest, which includes Cruise and Liman’s launch as part of the “SpaceX Crew Dragon Axiom Tourist Flight”.
Little is known about the plot, but Deadline’s report notes that Liman wrote the first draft of the script and Cruise is a producer on the film. Given the current pandemic and the training Cruise and others will likely have to go through, there’s no telling exactly when the film could start production, but it looks like this one might actually happen. Let’s see if we can get #SendTomCruiseToSpace trending.
Mission: Impossible Fallout took a break, literally when he broke his ankle in a leap from one rooftop to the other and he also hung from a helicopter; he hung from the side of a jet plane during takeoff in Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, and in Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol he scaled the Burj Khalifa, the Dubai skyscraper, and executed stunts 123 floors up. He is meticulous in preparing these stunts he does, which are frightening just to watch. There has never been a leading man (Jackie Chan might dispute this) who puts himself at risk as often as does Cruise, in the name of the most realistic action sequences possible. If he is successful shooting a project in Musk’s space ship, he will be alone in the Hollywood record books. Stay tuned.
