Mega blockbuster with Tom Cruise in space: his “Mission: Impossible 5 – 8” director is also involved
Tom Cruise is making a film in space, Doug Liman (“Edge Of Tomorrow”) is directing, Elon Musk is organizing the flight and Universal is providing at least $ 200 million. And now there are a few more interesting details.
For weeks there has been a lot of talk about one of the most daring action films Hollywood has ever planned. Tom Cruise will make an as yet untitled film in space. When the project first made the rounds, many movie fans assumed that his buddy Christopher McQuarrie, with whom he spoke “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation”, “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” and the upcoming “Mission: Impossible 7 “And” Mission: Impossible 8 “made and still does, gets involved.
But instead of this, Doug Liman (“Edge Of Tomorrow”) stages the project. A background article by Deadline reveals that McQuarrie is still on board – and also makes it clear why Liman was chosen to direct.
Deadline reports that Christopher McQuarrie is also on the creative team behind the project. He was part of a group of four led by Cruise, Liman and producer P.J. van Sandwijk (“Citizen K”), who presented the project in Hollywood – how to do it in today’s Corona times, of course, via a zoom call.
Ultimately, Universal was 123movies hd excited that the Hollywood studio bought the film and said they would provide the budget of at least $ 200 million. This budget is currently still a provisional minimum house number.
Because first of all Doug Liman has to write the script (which he is currently doing). Once the script is in place, the more precise logistical challenges can first be quantified and a final budget, which could then be over $ 200 million, can be determined.

Liman in space, McQuarrie on the ground
The division of labor between Liman and McQuarrie also seems certain. Deadline reports that McQuarrie will have a “ground control” role as story advisor and producer. And Liman then does the opposite of “Ground Control” …

If we asked ourselves in a more recent article on the subject whether the director himself flies into space or only staged from the ground via video switch, Liman is part of the crew on the flight into space.
According to the deadline, the director recently attended the launch of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket in Florida to get an impression. The launch also caused quite a stir because privateer Elon Musk is now working with NASA to bring astronauts back into space from America. Musk will also take the film crew around Cruise and Liman into space.
Mission: Impossible 7: Good news for fans of the great Fallout finale
At Deadline it is also pointed out that Liman is a similarly adventurous guy and also a pilot like Tom Cruise (by the way, both were already working together on a biopic about the adventurous pilot Barry Seal). So it should be clear why the choice fell on him and not McQuarrie to direct.
Tom Cruise is next to be seen again as a daring pilot in the cinema – in “Top Gun 2: Maverick”. The theatrical release was last postponed to July 8th, 2021, so we have to wait about a year for it. “Mission: Impossible 7” is scheduled to start on November 18, 2021. A schedule for the all-film has not yet been made public, but it is conceivable that Cruise will undertake the journey to the stars after the promotional work surrounding the theatrical releases of these films.
