Universal Pictures is ready to spend $ 200 million on a film with Tom Cruise in space


In May of this year, it was reported that one of the future films with the popular American actor Tom Cruise will be filmed in space. This will mark the first time in Hollywood history that a motion picture will be filmed outside of Earth.

According to the latest resource data Deadline, the actor himself, the director of the upcoming film Doug Liman, as well as producers Christopher McQuarrie and P.J. van Sandwijk have agreed with Universal Pictures, which will be engaged in the production of the future action adventure in space.

For the creation of the film, for which has not yet even been written a script (Lyman is engaged in its creation), Universal Pictures is ready to spend about $ 200 million. But, given the peculiarity of the shooting, the final budget may turn out to be higher than this amount.

The source reports that the private space company SpaceX, owned by billionaire Elon Musk, is ready to provide technical support for the picture. She will take care of the delivery of the cast and crew into Earth orbit and their safe return home. Details are still unknown, but, most likely, the shooting is planned to be carried out on board the International Space Station.
