NASA Is Helping Tom Cruise Shoot a Movie Aboard ISS

Cruise is reportedly teaming with Elon Musk's SpaceX and working with NASA to make the first narrative film ever shot in space - and an action movie, at that! "We need popular media to inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists to make @NASA's ambitious plans a reality".

Looking back at all the insane things Tom Cruise and Elon Musk have done, this will not come as a surprise, although I'm not sure how Tom's going to do his legendary run in zero gravity.

But Cruise could be the first actor to endure extraterrestrial travel.

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.

The report also said Cruise, is also working with Elon Musk's SpaceX, which will transport two United States astronauts to the International Space Station for Nasa later this month.

What do you think of Tom Cruise filming in space?

Russian Federation is now the only country able to send people to the ISS, however SpaceX and Boeing have been working for years to make the United States capable of the feat.

Unlike the human spaceflight programs of earlier decades, however, NASA will not own and operate SpaceX's or Boeing's vehicles.

SpaceX previously announced it would work with third-party companies to sell seats aboard Crew Dragon for about $50 million each. "I had a contract with the Russians in 2000 to go to the International Space Station and shoot a high-end 3D documentary there", Cameron told Empire. Food, air, and other provisions were priced at $22,500 per day.

USA outlet Deadline first reported the news.
