The film that Tom Cruise and Elon Musk want to shoot in space seems to be really coming. The film has found its director in Doug Liman, who has already worked with Tom Cruise several times.
It looks like the movie Tom Cruise and Elon Musk want to shoot in space is actually coming soon. The project, which until now was fairly uncertain, has found a director! Doug Liman would direct the unique film and produce the space film after first writing the script.
Fan of the “unusual”
It is no longer a secret that Elon Musk is a fan of the “unusual”. For example, the Tesla boss recently named his son X Æ A-12. The name is so strange that Musk had to explain how to pronounce it.
Meanwhile, Musk and his wife Grimes have changed the boy’s name because numbers are banned in the state of California. Back to the space movie, then. It seems to be getting more and more realistic, because SpaceX – Elon Musk’s commercial space company – is sending a manned commercial rocket into space for the first time, so it could do that for a movie too.
Cruise and Liman
Tom Cruise is no ordinary actor either. He is known for performing all his stunts himself. After tying himself to an airplane (in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation) and climb the tallest building in the world (into the Burj Khalifa Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol), now is the time to go one step further: to record a movie in space.
And that is what Tom Cruise prefers to do with his good friend Doug Liman. The director is now known for his work on action stars such as The Bourne Identity and Mr. & Mrs. Smith. He already worked with Cruise on Edge of Tomorrow and American Made. The idea of the “real” space movie even came from the duo Cruise-Liman.
