“Mission Impossible” actor and “The Bourne Identity” director Doug Liman have reached out to Universal Filmed Entertainment Group president Donna Langley about a movie that will be out of this world.

Plans for the stunt-loving actor to star in such a movie first surfaced in 2020 with Elon Musk’s SpaceX and NASA involved in the project. Speaking of Tom Cruise, Langley told the BBC:

“We have a big project in development with Tom that sees him getting a rocket to the Space Station. And he will hopefully become the first civilian to spacewalk outside of the International Space Station. He will play a down-on-his-luck guy who finds himself in the position of being the only person who could save the Earth.”

The film’s release included Cruise taking a rocket to the International Space Station.

However, most of the film “will take place on earth, and then the character needs to go into space to save the day,” Langely said, according to BBC News.

Langely, who is the first British woman to head a major US film studio, added that she hopes Cruise will be “the first civilian to spacewalk outside the space station.”

Cruise and Liman brought this idea to Langley via Zoom call during the pandemic.

Although the film is still in its early stages, he noted that the film industry is trying to get back to pre-pandemic levels.
