Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions are pairing up for yet another Tom Cruise star vehicle.

EW can confirm that Paramount has closed a deal, with Skydance as a partner, to acquire the script Our Name is Adam, written by T.S. Nowlin, with Cruise attached to play an astronaut who goes back in time to meet his younger self. Shades of Looper abound.

Skydance and Paramount produced Cruise’s upcoming action thriller Jack Reacher and last year’s Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol.
