Tom Cruise is likely to make a Film in Distance, in Cooperation with NASA and Elon Musk’s Space X.
Deadline reports that no studio is attached yet, but the movie will be’an activity experience’ — entirely within Cruise’s wheelhouse. The actor is famous for performing daredevil stunts in his movies, including scaling the Burj Khalifa tower in Dubai and hanging around the exterior of an unmanned airplane.
The actor had been filming the eighth and seventh Mission Impossible films back before manufacturing was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. The launch dates for the two films were then pushed, meaning when Mission Impossible 8 eventually hits the displays, Cruise is going to be 60 years old.
This isn’t the first-time celebrity has flirted with the concept of leaving Earth to take a movie. In 2018, director James Cameron reported he’d discussed a notion with the celebrity many decades back. “I talked to [Cruise] about performing a distance movie in distance, about 15 decades back. And I thought, ‘S–, guy, we ought to only make a feature.’ I said,’Tom, I and you, we will have two seats on the Soyuz, but someone’s got kindly train us engineers’ Tom stated,’No issue, I will train as an engineer’ We had some ideas to the narrative, however, it was conceptual.”
