Tom Cruise is Preparing to Become the First Actor to Shoot a Film in Space!

Tom Cruise’s next aim appears to be setting a new standard. Yes, you read that correctly! It’s because he’s about to become the first actor to shoot in space. Hollywood films such as The Martian, Interstellar, and Gravity have already provided us with a genuine glimpse into the world of space flight.

However, no film crew has ever gone beyond space to film similar-themed films. Tom Cruise is heading into space for real, after ascending the world’s tallest building, hanging off the side of a plane, and flying a fighter jet in several of his films.

The one-of-a-kind project

Concerning the current idea, it was first proposed in 2020 when the actor and The Bourne Identity director Doug Liman teamed up to make the impossible happen. However, the COVID-19 epidemic seems to have thwarted their goals. The pair has now spoken with Universal Studios Hollywood about the project, which will see Tom Cruise pilot a rocket to the International Space Station.

Donna Langley, Universal’s president, reportedly told the BBC regarding the future plan, “I think Tom Cruise is bringing us into space.” He’s launching the entire planet into space. That is the strategy. We have a terrific project in the works with Tom that involves him doing just that, as well as taking a rocket to the space station and filming.”

Langley also announced that the majority of the film’s sequences would be shot on Earth. The team is hoping that Tom Cruise will be the first citizen to perform a spacewalk outside of the space station.

Furthermore, The Bourne Identity director Doug Liman was quizzed about the film, which is expected to cost around $200 million. She stressed, though, that the budget had not yet been finalized. There is no disputing that a trip to space will be extremely expensive!
