James Cameron wanted to shoot a film in space with Tom Cruise
In an interview with Empire, Cameron said he presented the idea to the Cruise and, of course, the actor was ready!
“Actually I talked with [Cruise] to do a movie in space, about 15 years ago. I had a contract with the russians in 2000 to go on the International Space Station, and turn there, a 3D documentary films with a high budget. And I thought, ‘Fuck, dude, we should make a film’, I said, ‘Tom, you and I, we will have two seats on the Soyuz, but someone needs to train as engineers.’ Tom said, ‘No problem, I'm going to train hard as an engineer”. We had some ideas for the story, but it was still at the level of ideas.”
Unfortunately, the film never went into harbour, that is a sin. It would have been really fun to see Cameron and Cruise shooting a film in space on a space station! It is definitely a perfect combination of talents for a project like this!
Maybe one day the project will come true, although it seems that Cameron will be busy for years to make films based on Avatar.
