“Sky is no more the limit”: Tom Cruise Set to Shoot His Next Movie in the Space After Conquering the Skies in Top Gun: Maverick

Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise has done movies both romantic and action-packed. The range of his movies does not seem to end even after Top Gun: Maverick became his most successful movie ever, managing to make a total of $713.4 million in the USA alone and earning a rating of 96% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Tom Cruise and Universal Studios seem to be brewing up another idea as the now 60-year-old actor wants his next movie nowhere near the lands of Earth at all. The actor now seems to be ready to shoot his next big blockbuster, not in any ordinary location, but in space. Talk about not touching grass!

Tom Cruise’s Big Space Adventure

The ambitious movie that is to be shot in the International Space Station would require every crew member to be flown out of the planet itself via a rocket which would require a budget that would literally be skyrocketing. Although the Jerry Maguire actor holds a lot of power within the industry, this project had been put on hold due to the pandemic. Now, however, it seems to be right on track after seeing Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick make over $1.4 Billion worldwide.

Even though nothing of the movie has been set up or even begun production, the raw plot of the movie remains a classic Tom Cruise flick, a man on earth goes ahead to save the day, except this time, in space. Space Entertainment Enterprise (S.E.E.) would be co-producing the movie, launching the first space-based studio in around 2024. The movie is also being co-written with Christopher McQuarrie who is responsible for the entire Mission Impossible series.

The upcoming movie however would not be the first movie to be shot in space. A Russian film crew seems to have made their spot in being the first feature film to be shot in space. In October of 2021, the crew flew to ISS to shoot parts of it; much like how Cruise’s movie would be filmed.

Fans Share Their Thoughts On Tom Cruise’s Newest Adventure

The Mummy actor may be known for performing his own stunts, however, the situations for his newest movie might bring Cruise certain limitations. The movie is set to begin filming by next year and is still in the process of being written.

“He’s taking us to space, he’s taking the world to space. The plan is, that he’s taking a rocket up to the Space Station and to be the first civilian to do a spacewalk outside of the Space Station.”

Donna Langley, the Chairman of Universal Studios seems just as ecstatic as everyone else while working with the man who can fly higher than any limits. Fans too are excited to see Tom Cruise take on this role and step foot into an entirely new environment.
