Tom Cruise To Shoot In Space With The Help of Elon Musk
Tom Cruise will be traveling to ISS in October 2021 to shoot for a film.
Yes, you read that right! Tom Cruise's latest project will be taking him to International Space Station. He has been known for doing his own daring stunts in the “Mission: Impossible” series, such as holding onto the outside of a plane during take-off, and piloting a helicopter during a mountainous chase scene and him scaling the Burj Khalifa but his latest film will take him about 250 miles above cruising altitude — to the International Space Station.
The Space Shuttle Almanac tweeted that actor Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman (“The Bourne Identity”) are headed to the ISS in October 2021, thanks to Elon Musk.

Both Tom Cruise and Doug Liam are pilots and their adventurous spirit can be seen in their filmmaking.

The pitched the film worth no script and the Universal Pictures came with a production commitment of $200 million. Apparently Doug Liman is still writing the script. It is also said that Elon Musk, SpaceX CEO will be a partner in the project will McQuarrie, writer-director of Mission Impossible films be on ground as advisor and producer.
The tweet clearly says “one more spot to be filled” which is rumoured to be given to the female lead in the film. The film has no yet and lift-off is still a year away.
