While it was already known that the movie would film scenes on the International Space Station, Langley said the plan is for Cruise to also do a spacewalk.
“Tom Cruise takes us into space. He takes the world into space. That’s the plan,” Langley confirmed to the BBC. “We have a great project in development with Tom, who is thinking about doing exactly that. Taking a rocket to the space station and shooting and hopefully it will be the first civilian to do a spacewalk outside the space station.”
Langley revealed that while the movie will send a cruise into space, it “actually [mostly] It happens on Earth, and then the character needs to go up into space to save the situation.” The Universal President described Cruise’s character as “an unlucky man who finds himself in the position of being the only person who can save Earth.”

“When a producer suggests you something crazy, like, let’s try to shoot a movie in outer space, record NASA and SpaceX, and sign Tom Cruise … you’re a little bit more receptive,” Lyman said. excitement Last year about boarding the project.
Sources said earlier diverse The film’s production budget was set at $200 million. Cruz could earn between $30 million and $60 million, according to insiders. This will cover his services as a producer and star, and will also consist of a large first dollar gross involvement.
