Doug Liman is set to be directing another movie during the coronavirus pandemic, starring Anne Hathaway.

The director, Liman, has currently been working on a movie in outer space starring Tom Cruise. It involves Elon Musk’s Space X as well as NASA.

Both Liman and Cruise came up with the idea and have been in the process of developing it. NASA is working with the duo to plan the details of filming the movie in space.

This is a territory that no director has gone through in the history of film making. It’s exciting to see where this journey will take the two of them and see their vision pan out and come to life. As you can tell, Liman thinks outside of the box. We expect nothing less of him in his new project, Lockdown.

According to Deadline, Anne Hathaway is in talks to star in the new movie called Lockdown. The film is supposed to be a combination of a rom-com and an action-packed adventure. With Liman directing, Steven Knight writing the script, and Hathaway starring, this movie is sure to be a hit.

That was easily my favorite week ever on Instagram. Thank you again, Miss Lang (@aarynnlang), for giving me another chance to get it right, and for blessing us with your truth, wit, frankness, and flat out brilliance. Looking forward to making this space worthy of it. Since so many of you asked “Where’s Anne?” during the past week, here’s where I’m at: I wear a face mask because I care about others. #BlackLivesMatter. The vision of Black Trans people is critical to the liberation of this world. Love is love. Neither the human body nor the human experience come standard. None of those statements are controversial, so if you felt uncomfortable, challenged, offended, queasy-hot, tense or shut down while reading them, then this probably isn’t the right place for you. Or actually, it’s probably exactly the right place for you, but it’s your life. Anyway, back to Miss Lang and what she taught us: what moved you/surprised you the most during the past week? -AH

P.J. van Sandwijk and Alison Winter will be producing the film, with the filming being expected to start near the end of September. The budget is said to be under $10 million, making it a fairly low-budget project.

Hopefully this new movie will be exactly what everyone needs to get through the pandemic.
