Cruise hoping to shoot first action movie in space

Cruise is known for his all-action approach to acting

The report also said Cruise, is also working with Elon Musk's SpaceX, which will transport two U.S. astronauts to the International Space Station for Nasa later this month. At one point, pop starLance Bass, of 'NSYNC boyband fame, planned a visit in the early 2000s, though that trip did not pan out.

News of the picture broke in May, as NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstein confirmed the extraterrestrial enterprise in a subsequent tweet.

Although SpaceX's involvement has yet to be officially confirmed, it seems very likely a Dragon capsule will end up being used to transport Cruise and his film crew to the International Space Station to capture footage.

"No sooner was (Fallout) in the can and out the door that Tom turned to me and said, 'Here's what I want to do next.' In fact, at the premiere in Paris that was the first time Tom and I sat down to watch the film together". Whatever it ends up being, Cruise will be going where no other Hollywood actor has been before.


Deadline previously reported that Cruise's next ridiculous stunt is not for another Mission: Impossible movie - a franchise that has seen him hanging from helicopters, jet planes, scaling the Burj Khalifa, and leaping from rooftops. Both companies will be permitted to sell seats aboard their spacecraft to tourists or others willing to pay the multimillion price tag.

NASA also issued a directive previous year that laid out plans to allow non-government space travelers to pay the space agency for use of the International Space Station's facilities.

The International Space Station was built as a partnership among dozens of countries, but the United States and Russian Federation are its primary operators.

U.S. outlet Deadline first reported the news.
