NASA or the United States Space Agency (US) will work with actor Tom Cruise to make the first film located in space. Reporting from The Verge, Wednesday, NASA administrator, Jim Bridenstine said, this film will take pictures at the International Space Station.
However, it is unclear the details of this film project, including whether Cruise’s role in it. This 57-year-old man has been known for impressive actions when playing films, such as in ‘Mission: Impossible-Rogue Nation 2015’, he was able to hold the side of an Airbus A400 plane that was taking off.
Therefore, it is certain that the film Cruise is working on or starring him, will certainly be very interesting, especially with the concept for direct shooting in space which is the first time there. Reports from Deadline initially said that Katie Holmes’s ex-husband was collaborating with SpaceX to shoot the film, even though NASA and SpaceX had not yet confirmed the speculation.
SpaceX announced in February that it would launch four people to orbit around Earth at the end of 2021 or at the beginning of 2022. Passengers were set to fly on the newly developed Space Dragon Crew SpaceX and were scheduled to fly their first NASA astronauts to the International Space Station at the end of this month.
However, when asked for comment, NASA refused to provide further details. In a statement, a spokesman for the space agency said it would say more about the film project in a timely manner.
