Tom Cruise will become the first actor to shoot a movie in outer space
Just when you thought Tom Cruise’s success with the second Top Gun movie was his biggest film triumph yet, he comes up with an idea that is literally out of this world.
The 60-year-old Hollywood veteran has reportedly teamed up with The Bourne Identity director Doug Liman to pitch a film that will be shot in space. The idea was first floated in 2020, but the Covid-19 pandemic put an end to the plans.
Cruise and Liman are said to have contacted Universal Filmed Entertainment Group (UFEG) about a plan for the actor to take a rocket to the International Space Station.
According to BBC News, UFEG chairman Donna Langley said: “I think Tom Cruise is taking us all into space.”
“Yeah, that’s the plan. We’re making great progress on a great project with Tom… Using a rocket to get to the International Space Station and shooting.” Langley said most of the film will be shot on Earth, but will end with “the hero going to space to save the day’. She also said she hopes Tom Cruise will be “the first civilian to do a spacewalk outside the space station.”
If the film is made, Cruise will be the first famous actor to film on the International Space Station in space. Although it’s never been done before, it’s no surprise that Cruise wants to go to space. The Jerry Maguire actor is known for his daring stunts, so it’s no surprise that he wants to go into space.
Christopher McQuarrie, the director of Mission Impossible, has shared a rare photo of Tom Cruise doing a crazy stunt on his 60th birthday in July.

In the photo, Cruise can be seen hanging from a red biplane in the air with little or no assistance.
In 2017, he made headlines when he was injured on the set of Mission: Impossible 6. A leaked video showed that he was injured when he attempted a roof jump that went horribly wrong. Tom Cruise was seen crashing into a building and hanging in the air by his harness before pulling himself onto the roof and stumbling towards his crew.
A few months later, he was back on set shooting stunts in London. Asked at the Cannes Film Festival why he didn’t use a stuntman, Cruise said: “Nobody asked Gene Kelly, ‘Why are you dancing?'”
