Tom Cruise, talented actor and world-accomplished daredevil is set to boldly go where no film actor has gone before as he plans to shoot a movie in outer space.

Donna Langley, chairperson of Universal Filmed Entertainment Group, has stated that plans to launch Tom Cruise into outer space to film a movie are underway. According to her, the actor would film a segment of the film while suspended in weightlessness onboard the International Space Station.

Cruise is famously known for forgoing a stuntman or CGI alternatives and shooting high risk stunt action scenes himself. Some of his wildest stunts include strapping himself to the side of an ascending plane for a scene in Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, scaling down the side of the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa for Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and even riding fighter jets for Top Gun: Maverick, now Cruise, 60, has his sights set on conquering earth’s gravity.

Langley explained in a taped interview with BBC that the untitled space movie is set on Earth, but Cruise is needed on board the International Space Station for some last minute heroics. The concept was first pitched in 2020 by Cruise and Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman and two years alter, it appears to be gaining legs. Read Langley’s full comment below;

“Tom Cruise is taking us to space. He’s taking the world to space. That’s the plan. We have a great project in development with Tom, that does contemplate him doing just that. Taking a rocket up to the space station and shooting and hopefully being the first civilian to do a spacewalk outside of the space station.”

The space-bound project is reportedly in partnership with Elon Musk’s company, SpaceX, which has piloted several crewed missions to the International Space Station.
