Tom Cruise is set to become the first actor to shoot a movie in space, Page Six reports.
According to the report, just when you thought Tom Cruise achieved his greatest possible cinematic triumph with the success of the Top Gun sequel, the blockbuster star comes up with an idea that is, quite literally, out of this world.
The 60-year-old Hollywood veteran has reportedly teamed up with The Bourne Identity director Doug Liman on a movie pitch that involves filming in space, which was first tabled in 2020 before the Covid-19 pandemic halted plans.
If the film gets off the ground, Cruise would be the first movie star to shoot in outer space on the International Space Station.
On Cruise’s 60th birthday in July, Mission: Impossible director Christopher McQuarrie shared a rare photo of the US actor performing a truly insane stunt.
In the image, Cruise can be seen dangling from an airborne red biplane with very little – if any – assistance.
He made headlines when he was injured on the set of Mission Impossible 6 in 2017, with leaked video footage showing his death-defying leap onto a rooftop go horribly wrong.
