The global superstar 'Tom Cruise' is set to take his daredevilry to the next level in a new movie which will be shot in space – and he’s teaming up with Elon Musk‘s SpaceX company to make it happen. The movie is said to be of an action/adventure genre. According to the Deadline, the new Tom Cruise space movie is not a Mission: Impossible project but a another 'action-adventure film'. Cruise and SpaceX are working on the action/adventure project with NASA, and if it actually happens, it will be the first narrative feature film to be shot in outer space. The movie is still in its early development stage and does not have any studio yet.
This is not the first time Cruise has toyed with the idea of leaving the Earth to make a movie. Twenty years ago, none other than James Cameron approached Cruise and asked if he’d be interested in heading to the great unknown to make a movie together. The 57-year-old global actor has certainly built a reputation for taking extreme risks to pull off breathtaking stunts for his movies, mainly the Mission: Impossible franchise. The actor was filming the seventh and eighth Mission Impossible films back-to-back before production was suspended because of the coronavirus pandemic. The release dates for both movies were subsequently being pushed.
The outer space film project is the latest daredevil display from Cruise, who has sustained injuries while doing his own stunts on the making of the 'Mission: Impossible' films. During the making of the last entry, 2018’s 'Miission: Impossible – Fallout' directed by Christopher McQuarrie, Cruise broke his ankle after colliding with another building during a rooftop jump. Cruise, when the movie opened, joked that the grisly injury was done on one of the easier stunts in the film. This year Cruise will also reprise his role as Pete Mitchell in the 'Top Gun' sequel 'Maverick,' which Paramount Pictures recently shifted to a December 23 stateside release.
