Los Angeles: Actor Tom Cruise has joined filmmaker Doug Liman to develop the director's long-in- the-works sci-fi movie "Luna Park".
The 53-year-old "Mission Impossible" is also eyeing to star in the film. Cruise and Liman, who collaborated on the futuristic action movie "Edge of Tomorrow" and the upcoming drug-runner tale "Mena", are looking to collaborate for the third time, reported Entertainment Weekly.
The film will tell the story of a renegade crew of former space workers, who travel to the moon to steal an energy source.
Liman was trying to get the space-heist movie off the ground for several years, first at DreamWorks and then at Paramount, where it is currently set up.
Actors including Jake Gyllenhaal, Chris Evans and Andrew Garfield had been linked to the project in the past when Paramount gave it a green-light in 2011, only to pull the plug when co-financier Skydance bailed over budget concerns. Cruise will soon start shooting "Jack Reacher 2".
