That’s one small step for man, one gi­ant leap for Tom Cruise… Yes, the mighty- gnash­ered Mis­sion: Im­pos­si­ble star is head­ing to the Moon. And know­ing his new­found love of crowd­pleas­ing prac­ti­cal stunt­work he’ll be clutch­ing the busi­ness end of a Saturn V as he does so. Cruise will re­unite with Edge Of To­mor­row helmer Doug Li­man – who’s also di­rect­ing him in up­com­ing ’ 80s thriller Mena – on this tech- heavy ad­ven­ture, the tale of a team of rene­gade space ex­perts who head to Earth’s satel­lite us­ing stolen equip­ment in or­der to ex­ploit a valu­able new power source. Li­man’s been try­ing to make this one for a while – Chris Evans and An­drew Garfield were in the frame dur­ing its ini­tial de­vel­op­ment back in 2011. Para­mount Pic­tures is bank­ing that Cruise’s star­power will give this pro­ject suf­fi­cient thrust to fi­nally blast off.
