Universal Sets Tom Cruise-Doug Liman ‘Mena’ Flight Plan For January 2017

Mena, the team-up between Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman that Deadline broke back in January, now has a full flight plan and a January 6, 2017, release date. Universal Pictures has confirmed that Cruise is reteaming with his Edge Of Tomorrow helmer (a most underrated film) for the true and truly outrageous exploits of Barry Seal, a hustler and pilot unexpectedly recruited by the CIA to run one of the biggest covert operations in U.S. history. Given Cruise’s penchant for doing his own Mission: Impossible stunts and his prowess as a pilot, this one ought to be an adventure, and it likely will be impossible to get him out of the cockpit. Joining Cruise is Ex Machina‘s Domhnall Gleeson, Sarah Wright, Friday Night Lights‘ Jesse Plemons, Caleb Landry Jones, Jayma Mays, Benito Martinez, E. Roger Mitchell, Lola Kirke and Alejandro Edda.

Strange release date for a Tom Cruise film. Maybe it will have a limited release first near Christmas in hopes of being an awards contender?

I'm looking forward to his MI: Rogue Nation flight plan of hanging from a freaking plane a whole lot more.
