Tom Cruise maybe the first actor when Filming in space! The Top Gun: Maverick star, 60 years old, participated in a pitch with Bourne’s identity manager Doug Liman on the untitled Universal Studios movie. “I think Tom Cruise is sending us into space, he is sending the world into space…[and could be] The first human to walk in space outside the space station, “UFEG President” Donna Langley said in an interview according to BBC News. “That’s the plan. We have a great project in development with Tom… Take the rocket to the Space Station and fire it up,” she added.
Donna also gave details about the film’s plot. “[It would involve] figure [going] up to space to save the day,” she added, noting that they would shoot at International Space Station. However, most of the story will be set on earth.
The move will make history, but also matches Tom’s professional track record – especially given what he’s achieved in relation to his own stunt work in Mission Impossible as spy Ethan Hunt. During an attack from the director Christopher McQuarriehe even dangling on a biplane in the air. Back in 2017, Tom was unfortunately injured doing a rooftop jump – crashing into a cement wall while doing a stunt.
In Cannes Film Festival this early year, the New York native recalls the first time he did a stunt as a child. “I think I’m about four and a half years old, and I have this doll, and you throw it in the air and a parachute falls. I was playing with this thing, and I threw it down a tree, and I said, ‘I really want to do this,'” he recalled in a discussion with the journalist. Didier Allouch every EVERYONE magazine.
“I remember I took the sheets off the bed, and I was going to tie a rope… and I climbed onto the corrugated iron roof, and onto the roof. I looked and my mother was in the kitchen – she has four children – and I jumped off the roof,” he continued. “That’s the moment when you jump off the roof and you go, ‘This is not going to work. This is bad. I’m gonna die.’ And I hit the ground very hard. Fortunately, it was wet. I don’t know how it happened, but I found out later that my face grazed my leg when my butt hit the ground. And I saw the stars in daylight for the first time, and I remember looking up, saying, ‘This is very interesting.’
Ultimately, that moment as a youngster inspired Tom to accept the challenge of performing his own stunts later on. “Now, I’m here on set… but I was the kid who used to climb the rafters or the tallest trees. I want that, I want to do it, and how do I develop these skills and make it part of the story and the characters? ” he also said. “Even if I’m not acting, I’m learning about cinema, I’m pushing myself to learn different skills. I was like, ‘I’m going to put this in a movie someday,’ he added.
