Tom Cruise Has Considered Taking MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE to Space

Tom Cruise plays Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation from Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions.

Tom Cruise is quite happy with the release of Mission: Impossible – Fallout and the generally positive reviews it’s been getting from the critics. Each of the Mission films seems to get bigger and better. So, why haven’t they gone to space yet, that is a brilliant idea right? It turns out that Cruise has thought about it. In an interview with Collider, Cruise was asked about going to space and here’s his response:

“We’ve thought about it. It’s like how do we do it? It’s the mechanics of getting it there. How do you build a sequence there and how long can we have that sequence? Because if I went up and just dropped, it’s the kind of time — how do you put that into the structure of a screenplay of a Mission? When we’re doing these things, there’s so much story going on. As opposed to just a cool shot, we want character and story going throughout. I can’t help but look at that building up here or at the Eiffel Tower and seeing stories. What could the team do and what could we do? But we have thought about that.”
