Doug Liman was hired to direct Tom Cruise’s upcoming film that would be shot in outer space, according to reports.
The reports stated that Tesla chief Elon Musk and the Hollywood superstar have approached Liman, who also led Tom’s”Edge of Tomorrow.
The filmmaker has also directed Mr & Mrs Smith, The Bourne Identity and Swingers and Go.
Tom Cruise, 57, is famous for his all-action approach and does his own stunts, including a high altitude freefall for 2018’s Mission: Impossible — Fallout.
He’s going one step further, leaving Earth altogether to board the International Space Station to film what is the first narrative feature in space. Nasa administrator Jim Bridenstine confirmed the news earlier this month .
He tweeted: “NASA is excited to work with @TomCruise on a film aboard the @Space_Station. We need popular media to inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists to make @NASA’s ambitious plans a reality.”
Cruise and Elon Musk’s SpaceX are in the early stages of working with Nasa for an action-adventure film in space. No plot details have been revealed, but Deadline stated it wouldn’t be a Mission: Impossible film.
