The latest movie Tom Cruise is working on is simply out of this planet.
According to Donna Langley, chairperson of Universal Filmed Entertainment Group, the Hollywood icon is on track to become the first actor to film a movie in space.
Last week, Langley revealed to BBC News that her company is working on a movie starring Cruise that will have him riding a rocket to the International Space Station.
“I think Tom Cruise is taking us to space, he’s taking the world to space,” remarked Langley.
“Yeah, that’s the plan.
“We have a great project in development with Tom that does contemplate him doing just that, yeah, taking a rocket up to the space station and shooting and hopefully being the first civilian to do a spacewalk outside of the space station.”
The United States, Russia, Japan, Canada, and Europe all collaborated to build the International Space Station, which was managed by NASA.
It’s interesting to note that during the pandemic, Cruise and “The Bourne Identity” director Doug Liman presented Langley the idea for the movie via a Zoom conversation.
According to her,“The majority of the story actually takes place on Earth, and then the character needs to go up to space to save the day,”
According to IMDb, the as-of-yet-untitled film is in pre-production.
However, there is little doubt that Cruise will complete his task if he so chooses.
The boyish-appearing 60-year-old actor is currently able to write his own ticket thanks to the massive box office success of his most recent movie, “Top Gun: Maverick.”
According to Box Office Mojo, the patriotic action movie has so far made approximately $1.5 billion in international box office receipts since its May 27 premiere, making it the highest-grossing movie of 2022.
“Top Gun: Maverick” has risen to the position of 11th-highest-grossing movie of all time in the five months following its debut.
The phenomenal success of the 1987 hit “Top Gun” sequel was an unapologetic victory for Cruise, who is renowned for performing many of his own stunts.
