Tom Cruise gets the greenlight to shoot a movie in space

Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman will be shooting a movie where nobody has shot a movie before, it’s been confirmed.

It seems that Tom Cruise is set to face his most implacable foe yet: the cold, unforgiving vastness of space.

We’ve heard chatter for a little while now about the possibility of action star and thrill-seeker Cruise travelling beyond the reaches of the Earth’s atmosphere to shoot parts of his next movie, and now it seems that it’s happening.

Dark Horizons is reporting that Space Shuttle Almanac, the official Twitter account for all things space-related, is confirming that Cruise and director Doug Liman will be heading into space to shoot scenes for the as-yet unnamed movie in October of next year. The project is the result of a collaborative effort between  NASA, billionaire Space X founder Elon Musk, Cruise/Liman and their production team.

The space flight will be led by Commander Michael Lopez-Alegria who holds several space-walking records with NASA and will be aboard a Space X Crew Dragon Axiom Tourist Flight.

No words on plot details, or even a title for the project as of yet, but with talk of Cruise and Liman reuniting for a sequel to Edge Of Tomorrow (or Live  Die Repeat if you prefer its later and better) name), perhaps this could be related. Or it could be something entirely different.

More news on this one as we have it.
