The project is being called an “action-adventure film”. 

You have seen Tom Cruise doing all kinds of stunts in his films but this is quite something. The Hollywood star is now set to shoot a film in outer space after he has reportedly joined hands with Elon Musk. 

According to a report in Deadline, Tom Cruise and Elon Musk’s aviation company Space X are in talks with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) for filming a narrative movie aboard a real SpaceX vessel.

The project is being called an “action-adventure film”. 

There is, however, no Hollywood studio attached to the project at the moment.

Tom has built a career by doing his own stunts in action films. In ‘Mission Impossible- Ghost Protocol’, he scaled the Burj Khalifa. In ‘Mission Impossible - Rogue Nation, he had hung off the side of an airplane mid-flight. 

In 2018, he injured himself for ‘Mission Impossible - Fallout’ when he broke his ankle after colliding with another building during a rooftop jump.

Tom Cruise’s ‘Top Gun: Maverick’, the sequel to his 1986 hit ‘Top Gun’ awaits a release.. The film, which was scheduled to hit theatres worldwide in June, has been delayed till December due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The actor is also working on two back-to-back ‘Mission: Impossible’ films.
