Director Doug Liman along with Donna Langley (the chairwoman of Universal Pictures), will be helming the project. The duo collaborated with Tom Cruise during Edge of Tomorrow (2014) and American Made (2017). Despite the shooting set in space, the film will be based on planet Earth only. The finale of the movie will see Tom Cruise rising through the clouds as he blasts off to space to save the planet. Doug Liman spoke about the idea of sending Tom Cruise into space.

“When a producer proposes something crazy to you, like, let’s try to shoot a movie in outer space, and NASA and SpaceX sign on, and Tom Cruise signs on… you’re just a little bit more receptive,”

The Bourne Identity director further continued,

“We have a great project in development with Tom, that does contemplate him doing just that. 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.”

It is rumored that the project is having a budget range around the ballpark of 200 million dollars as the movie would surely be expected to earn well after shooting scenes in actual space. There have been no plot details announced so far.
