Doug Lehmann will direct Tom Cruise into space


The Hollywood Reporter noted that the details of the film were still classified, but Lehman was known to write the script. Lyman and Cruz have worked together in Edge of Tomorrow and American Mad.

“(NASA) is excited to work with Tom Cruise in a movie on the International Space Station,” NASA director Jim Braidenstein said on Twitter this May 5. “We need the media to inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists to turn NASA’s ambitious plans into reality,” he added.

Braidenstein did not provide any details, but the tweet was published after a report by the entertainment website “Deadline”, in which he stated that Cruz is working with Tesla and the CEO of SpaceX, the businessman Elon Musk, in a film project that will be the first feature film to be filmed in The space.

Cruz, 57, is the famous hero of the Mission Impossible movie series, and he is known for performing dangerous scenes in his films himself. Cruise drove fighter planes in his upcoming movie “Top Gun: Maverick”, and clung to a plane as it took off the ground in “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” in 2015, climbing the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the tallest building in The world included in the movie “Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol”.

A decision to suspend the filming of the seventh part of the “Mission Impossible” series was issued in February, with the outbreak of the Corona virus in Italy. The epidemic halted film and television production in Hollywood and closed cinemas.
