Film. Release. Repeat.
Tom Cruise and Doug Liman, who collaborated on the futuristic action movie Edge of Tomorrow and the upcoming drug-runner tale Mena, are looking to reunite for a third go-around. Cruise has joined Liman to develop the director’s long-in-the-works sci-fi movie Luna Park, with an eye to star, EW has confirmed. Variety first reported the news.
The film is to tell the story of a renegade crew of former space workers who travel to the moon to steal an energy source.
Liman has trying to get the space-heist movie off the ground for several years, first at DreamWorks and then at Paramount, where it is currently set up. Actors including Jake Gyllenhaal, Chris Evans and Andrew Garfield had been linked to the project in the past. Paramount gave it a greenlight in 2011, only to pull the plug when co-financier Skydance bailed over budget concerns.
Cruise’s star power could help jump-start Luna Park, although the actor has a busy schedule at the moment. He’ll soon start shooting Jack Reacher 2, and a sixth Mission: Impossible movie is in the works.
