According to deadline.com, Cruise and Musk’s aviation company Space X are working on a project with NASA that would be the “first narrative feature film” to be shot in outer space.

Being described as an action adventure, the film will be shot aboard a real SpaceX vessel. The report states that the project is in its “early stage”, and no studio is attached yet.

The Hollywood star, 57, has carved a reputation for taking extreme risks to pull off jaw dropping stunt sequences, mostly in the “Mission: Impossible” franchise.

During “Mission: Impossible Fallout”, he broke his ankle while jumping from one rooftop to another. He also hung from a helicopter in the film. He hung from the side of a jet plane during takeoff in “Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation”, and for “Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol”, he climbed up the Burj Khalifa.

Meanwhile, Cruise’s “Top Gun: Maverick”, the much-anticipated sequel of the 1986 hit “Top Gun”, has been delayed amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The film will now release on December 23 instead of original release date June 24.
