Tom Cruise is arguably the biggest movie star in the English-speaking world. He would appear to have the power to get projects green lighted by the studios. On that evidence at least, this man is really, really into his science fiction.
Doug Liman won his action spurs with the first Bourne movie. I can see a lot of the same thinking here. I hope he’s pulled this one off – it certainly won’t be an easy story to tell right.
