Tom Cruise to shoot in space with NASA

Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise is taking his love for action scenes to space now! As informed earlier, the actor is working on shooting in space with the help of Elon Musk’s company Space X. It was reported that Cruise bagged a whopping budget of $200 million from Universal Pictures for the film, which will be helmed by Doug Liman. Cruise is heading to space with NASA in October 2021.

NASA is working with Tom Cruise to film the first movie shot in space, according to NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine. The details of the project aren’t clear, but Bridenstine says the film will take place aboard the International Space Station.

Bridenstine didn’t say how Cruise will be participating in the adventure, but a NASA spokesperson confirmed to CNN that Cruise would launch to space and stay onboard the ISS. Cruise is well-known for performing increasingly impressive stunts in his recent films, including clutching the side of an Airbus A400 as it takes off in 2015’s Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation. It’s hard to think of a more difficult stunt to pull than making a feature film in space.

Deadline first reported news of a possible collaboration between Cruise and NASA. The report said that Cruise was working with SpaceX to shoot the film, though neither NASA nor SpaceX has confirmed that speculation. SpaceX did announce in February that it will launch four private citizens to orbit around Earth at the end of 2021 or in early 2022. The passengers are set to fly in SpaceX’s newly developed Crew Dragon spacecraft, which is slated to fly its first NASA astronauts to the International Space Station later this month.

When asked for comment, NASA declined to provide more details. “We will say more about the project at the appropriate time,” a NASA spokesperson told The Verge. “Anything else would be premature.” Hours later, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk tweeted at Bridenstine: “Should be a lot of fun!”
