Tom Cruise will reteam with "Edge of Tomorrow" director Doug Liman for the long-planned sci-fi heist film "Luna Park," Variety reports.
The actor's involvement is a serious boost to the project, which Liman has been trying to get off the ground since at least 2007, when it was called "Moon." He came close in 2011, under the title "Luna," before Paramount Pictures put on the brakes after co-financier Skydance Productions dropped out over budget concerns. Cruse will help develop the film, and possibly star.
"Luna Park" centers on a group of ex-space employees who travel the world stealing equipment in an effort to return to the moon to find an energy source. All they need now is a former NASA employee, whom they set out to kidnap.
Variety notes that while it's unclear whether Paramount and Skydance will be involved, Cruise has a tight relationship with both due to the "Mission: Impossible" franchise.
Cruise is already set to star in Liman's thriller "Mena," due out in January 2017.
