Tom Cruise & Doug Liman Go to LUNA PARK



A long-gestating SF action flick Luna Park may have new life at Paramount now that Tom Cruise has joined the Doug Liman project.

Headshot_DougLimanSources tell Variety that Cruise has joined Liman, who produced Edge of Tomorrow, in developing the project. Liman’s been working on it for quite a while, and originally was set for the likes of Chris Evans and Andrew Garfield back in 2011, but Paramount halted production after the budget went north of $100 million and co-financier Skydance Pictures bailed on the project.

The story centers around a group of renegade employees who travel to the moon to steal an energy source.

Cruise is rumored to be up for the lead role, and Paramount may be moving forward with it again. No word on whether Skydance would be involved, although the Variety article cites the success of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation as a motivator for working together again.

With another Mission: Impossible and a sequel to Jack Reacher in the works, this one could sit for a while before production begins. Cruise next appears in Mena, which hits theaters in January.
