The COVID-19 pandemic has completely affected film and television production, as studios try to discover how to create new content amid this “new normal”. Action star Tom Cruise inadvertently found a creative way to avoid this, with news emerging earlier this year that the actor was planning to shoot an entire movie in outer space. The movie will be a collaboration between Space X and Elon Musk’s NASA, and production will take place aboard the International Space Station – now we know when this could (literally) take off to Earth. According to a new report by TMZ, a statement lists the 2020-2023 cruise and director Doug Lehman among the passengers of the International Space Station. The duo are expected to embark on a trip with a SpaceX Crew Dragon missile and capsule to the International Space Station, which will launch in October 2021.
The action-adventure film, which remains untitled, is said to have a $ 200 million commitment from Universal Studios. Days after the initial rumors about the film first surfaced, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstein confirmed the news, arguing that projects like the movie “will inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists to make NASA’s ambitious plans a reality.”
While the project appears to be in its infancy, it feels lovely for Cruise’s trademark, especially considering its history with other stunts.

This latter film was forced to stop production for a short time, when Cruz broke his ankle as he jumped across rooftops.
“just me [wanted to] Cruz said of the trick in a 2018 interview, “Keep going because I know I’ll never do this again.” I had to go to full rehab. I had friends calling out, “Oh man, you want to come down to the south of France.” [I had to reply] I got 10 to 12 hours of rehab. “
“I’ve spent years training on these things and I’ve been doing it for years. So we’re doing everything we can to reduce any kind of errors and we’re very precise about how we handle and account for these things,” Cruz said. “When you go, there are times when I don’t wear a helmet and we are traveling at high speed.”
