Tom Cruise was recently in the news for convincing Universal to produce a movie entirely in the space. Although he did not have a written script beforehand, his idea was enough for the creators. The cost of which is said to $200 million (which is approximately Rs 1500 crore). This conversation between them took place over a zoom call due to the pandemic. In spite of no one on one conversation, Tom Cruise seems to have bagged his next movie exclusively filmed in the space.
This movie will be history-based, taking us back in the period. The entire meeting which took place also included Doug Liman (who is also known for his contribution in Edge of Tomorrow) as the writer-director of the movie. In fact, his common co-worker Christopher McQuarrie along with his producer PJ van Sandwijk will be seen as a part of the film. Not only them, since it is a matter of space, we will see the contribution of Elon Musk through his SpaceX firm in the movie.
In fact, NASA, too, will be helping to shoot the movie that requires aboard International Space Station. The movie, even though titled ‘Mission Impossible’ will not see a new section of the Mission: Impossible movie in the past. As surprising as it may sound, Universal sealed the deal over a Zoom call and even signed a contract for the same without referring to the script. In the words of McQuarrie (well-known director of Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible 5,6,7 and 8) said that they are supposed to have only floor control being a story advisor along with serving as a producer. He added that Dough Liman will pen down the entire script of this upcoming action movie.
As of now, Tom is busy shooting his Mission Impossible: 7. This movie, as we all know, has been postponed due to coronavirus. Some other news about this movie circulated that team was intending on puffing up the whole bridge in Poland for some adventurous scene. The history of that particular bridge remains that it was actually built in the year 1909 in Pilchowice, which is a village in Poland province. However, since the year 2016, it had been withdrawn from service.
As we update about Cruise, he will next be on display for his movie ‘Tom Gun: Maverick’, which, too, has been set back to December release has been further extended for 2021 due to the ongoing virus. We hope till the time of 2021, there is no trace of the virus for its smooth release and the upcoming movies. So, are you excited to watch this space-based movie featuring Tom Cruise?
