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

The ambitious film project, which is masterminded by Elon Musk with his SpaceX partners and officials at NASA, has had its first draft of the screenplay written by the 'Edge of Tomorrow' helmer.

AceShowbiz - Filmmaker Doug Liman is taking a leap of faith with Tom Cruise and Elon Musk by signing up to make movie history with a shoot in space.

Liman, who directed Cruise in "American Made" and "Edge of Tomorrow", will accompany the action man on the out-of-this-world action adventure, which Musk is masterminding with his SpaceX partners and officials at NASA.

The director has written the first draft of the screenplay and he will produce along with Cruise, according to Deadline.

More information about the ambitious project will be available in the coming days following the launch of Musk's two-man SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, which will put America back into space for the first time in almost a decade, on Wednesday, May 27.

Cruise has work to finish before he can get started on the Musk project - he and director Christopher McQuarrie are keen to get back to work on the seventh "Mission: Impossible" movie after the coronavirus pandemic shut down filming just before it was scheduled to start in March (20).

As a result of the delay, Nicholas Hoult has been forced to exit the blockbuster and last week Esai Morales was hired as the film's villain.
