Actor Tom Cruise is taking his love for action scenes one step higher!
The $200 million figure is an estimate, considering the project is still being scripted and the unprecedented logistics, but it costs more to make space-set blockbusters that never require breaking through the atmosphere.
Only if you're checking whether it is 1st April, then Deadline is reporting Cruise, director Doug Liman and Christopher McQuarrie have consented together with Universal Pictures a budget in the area of 200 million (Number 153 million) to create the movie, which now does not have a script (seemingly Liman is writing it today ). Tom Cruise closed the deal with NASA and Elon Musk to shoot the movie beyond the limitations of Earth. So far, we know that Cruise and Musk are joining forces with NASA and Musk's aerospace manufacturer SpaceX for the film. Directed by Cruise on American Maid and Age of Tomorrow, Lyman's personal successes include Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
This shouldn't be particularly surprising to anyone who has followed Cruise's career over the past decade.
The movie will be the first movie to shoot in outer-space, and SpaceX Elon Musk will also be involved in the project. The two of them have practically been joined at the hip, with McQuarried either directing, producing, or writing a draft of the screenplay for almost every Cruise movie since 2008's Valkyrie.
For this movie, Tom Cruise will be going to space, "the real space".
Tom will be next seen in "Top Gun: Maverick", which has been delayed in light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Both are pilots and their adventurous spirit shows in their filmmaking. As for Cruise, he is a meticulous planner, but fearless in performing his individual stunts that have incorporated hanging from a helicopter and the aspect of a jet airplane for the duration of takeoff in "Mission: Unattainable Rogue Country". He demolished the Burj Khalifa, a Dubai school building, and expanded the stunt to 123 floors.
