Tom Cruise To Collaborate With NASA On First Film Shot In Space
According to NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine, NASA will be working closely with actor Tom Cruise on the first movie to be shot in space. While not much is known about the project, Bridenstine states that the film will be shot aboard the International Space Station.
A NASA spokesperson has informed CNN that Cruise will be launched into space and will stay aboard the ISS. While the actor is known for performing difficult stunts like clutching the side of an Airbus A400 while it takes off in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, this is sure to be a territory even he hasn’t breached.

“We will say more about the project at the appropriate time,” a NASA spokesperson told The Verge. “Anything else would be premature.” Earlier, it was reported that Cruise might be collaborating with SpaceX while shooting for the film.
