Tom Cruise's Outer Space-Shot Movie Finds Its Director in Doug Liman

Tom Cruise's Outer Space-Shot Movie Finds Its Director in Doug Liman

The American Made director is thought to be a ideal choice for this adventurous feat, as he and Cruise are both qualified pilots.

For now, though, Cruise and Liman have different production areas to focus on.

After NASA confirmed their plan to work with Tom Cruise and Elon Musk's SpaceX on a movie that might be shot in outer area, sources inform Variety the undertaking has discovered its director.

Further details on the potential project including title and plot are being kept under wraps, and as it stands now, the project still does not have a studio attached.

Liman is also known for helming actioners like Mr & Mrs Smith, with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, and Jumper, as well as the first in the Bourne series. The film won't be another installment in the "Mission: Impossible" film series, Deadline reported, and now no studio is involved.

Rumours began earlier this month that Cruise was looking to sign on to a project that would use Elon Musk's Space X.

Liman has already written the first draft of the screenplay for the new outer-space movie, which is being made independently, and he and Cruise will also be serving as producers on the project. Before starting work together both of them are busy with projects of their own. The film was scheduled to release in summer but because of the pandemic it has been pushed to December 23 for release.

Doug Liman is the director of YouTube Premium's "Impulse".

Liman will pen the script and produce with Cruise.

It is earlier verified that the project is entirely new, and it does not have any connection with Cruise's Mission: Impossible 7.

What the film will actually be about remains to be seen, but we now know who's involved with the movie alongside Cruise.
