Tom Cruise and Elon Musk’s ‘SpaceX’ Planning to Shoot a Movie in Space

Deadline are reporting that Tom Cruise, Elon Musk’s space company SpaceX, and NASA are teaming up for the first fictional movie to be shot in space.


It’s going to be an action adventure movie, which is unsurprising with Tom Cruise involved. No production companies are involved yet this early on in the process, so it’s just a case of waiting for more news.


While the story itself is surprising, the involvement of Cruise and Musk isn’t. Musk is known for his eccentricity and for pushing boundaries, like developing flamethrowers and launching cars into space. Cruise is also known as being very involved in his projects and doing his own stunts.


During filming for Mission: Impossible – Fallout, Cruise jumped a building and broke his ankle. The crazy thing is that he decided to finish the take! So the man is dedicated to realism, and what could get more real than filming in zero gravity?


As I said before, little more is known at this point, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated as the project develops.
