Tom Cruise to Film Aboard the International Space Station”

Deadline reports that Cruise is in early discussions with Elon Musk's SpaceX about the possibility of filming a feature film in space, with NASA also involved in the early chats.

"NASA is excited to work with Tom Cruise on a film aboard the space station!"

NASA administrator, Jim Bridenstine, confirmed the talks were involving the USA space agency with a tweet he posted on May 6th, pointing out that popular media would be useful to inspire the next generation of NASA engineers and scientists.

Deadline first reported the news about Cruise's space-themed movie, which will be the first narrative feature film to be shot in outer space. We need popular media to inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists to make @NASA's ambitious plans a reality. The evaluation process that includes medical tests, screenings, and extensive trainings usually takes two years to accomplish.

Dangling out of the side of various types of air vehicles and running forever is apparently no longer enough to rustle Tom Cruise's jimmies. Since then, films from around the world have replicated several different plots from Apollo 11 to Interstellar, both of which were impressive in their rights for an accurate and realistic depiction of outer space compared to the many photos that are available anywhere one may look. In addition, his films have grossed over $4 billion in North America and over $10.1 billion worldwide, making him one of the highest-grossing box office stars of all time.

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