He’s doing it! The crazy son of a bitch is actually doing it! Tom Cruise has heard there are no phones in space, so he will once again not phone anything in. He always brings his A game but this time he’s taking that A game and strapping it to a rocket.
Cruise’s movie career now just seems to be about him chalking things off his bucket list while finding new ways to injure himself to deliver a thrill for the audience. Want to fly a jet fighter? No problem, we just spin up Top Gun 2. A halo jump? Get the Mission: Impossible script writer on the phone (that he doesn’t even know how to use, as he’s never phoned anything in, in his life!)
This time around? That’s right. Tom Cruise is actually going to make a movie in space!
Tom Cruise and Elon Musk’s Space X company are working on a project with NASA. It will be the first feature film to be shot in space. The project will NOT be a Mission: Impossible film so no riffing on Moonraker for Ethan Hunt. They are apparently working on logistics and have not settled on a studio yet.
It is said to be an action-adventure and the script is currently just an outline. But this is really happening.
Further details are expected to be forthcoming shortly.
