Universal Pictures is eager to film with actor Tom Cruise, they are already making all the previous preparations
Universal Pictures is in talks to get the rights to actor Tom Cruise’s new project, which seeks to be the first feature film to be made in space, Variety reported.
The project, to be led by a former Cruise collaborator, Doug Liman, caused a stir in May for its ambition to chase a record and enlist the full cooperation of Elon Musk’s company, SpaceX, and NASA, which is going to host production on the International Space Station.

The event could create the same excitement and the same advertising success and l launch of the ship of the Dragon crew SpaceX, as the whole world can see how Cruise arrives at space, which will generate curiosity about the outcome of their production.

Another major issue for the company that manages to stay with the project is the safety of Cruise, who would be 60 by the time pre-production begins, and the film crew, as no scripted production has ever conceived of action sequences filmed outside of the Earth; in fact, this future movie doesn’t even have a script yet.
The movie TOP GUN, starring Tom Cruise, a classic from the 80s, was uploaded to NETFLIX yesterday. In this we get into the role of Maverick, a young pilot who arrives at the most prestigious area school in the United States, along with that we live the romance with his instructor.
According to sources, two of the mainstreaming platforms, not to mention which they were, did not receive an invitation to bid on the project, since the team anchored to it has a strong preference for a film release in a traditional cinema format…
