Later, it was further reported that Tom Cruise bagged a whopping budget of $200 million from Universal Pictures.

But, how exactly did Tom Cruise secure such a massive budget? According to Deadline, "All it took was an exuberant Zoom call with Tom Cruise, director Doug Liman, Christopher McQuarrie, and PJ van Sandwijk. They pitched the picture with no script (Liman is writing it), and came away with a production commitment around $200 million."

Jim Bridenstine, who works as an official administrator at NASA, confirmed the news stating, "NASA is excited to work with @TomCruise on a film aboard the @Space_Station! We need popular media to inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists to make @NASA’s ambitious plans a reality."

Tom Cruise's Mission Impossible director Christopher McQuarrie will take the role of story advisor and producer alongside Cruise, Doug Liman, and PJ van Sandwijk.
