Tom Cruise looks like he might be on the edge of making another sci-fi movie with the director of Live. Die. Repeat. Cruise and Doug Liman will look to mimic the success they had with Edge of Tomorrow, in a film titled Luna Park.
Variety reports that Cruise is joining the development of the movie, which has been stalled for years. In 2011, Liman was going to make the film with Chris Evans and Andrew Garfield in leading roles, but that fell through when Paramount dropped the film after a co-financier backed out with the budget looking as though it would be over $100 million.
The plot of Luna Park “revolves around a group of renegade employees who venture to the moon to steal an energy source.” As long as that energy source is not called “unobtainium,” the script is miles ahead of another space odyssey about an energy source.
This would be the third film for Cruise and Liman. They recently worked together on Mena, a story set in the ’80s about a pilot that starts working for the CIA as a drug runner in the south. Mena is scheduled to be released in January 2017.
Sending Tom Cruise into space means it will be very hard for him to run anywhere, but we’d still be excited for another sci-fi from these two. Edge of Tomorrow was one of the sneaky best films last year.
