Tom Cruise aims higher with movie shot on space station

Cruise has become well known for performing all his own stunts, whether it's dangling from the side of a plane or helicopter or off the side of Dubai's skyscraper the Burj Khalifa. That said, Deadline did rule out the possibility that Cruise's big space odyssey would be another Mission: Impossible movie.

I'm hearing that Tom Cruise and Elon Musk's SpaceX are working on a project with NASA that would be the first narrative feature film - an action adventure - to be shot in outer space.

The potentially groundbreaking film will reportedly not be one of the two upcoming Mission: Impossible sequels, which are now on a production hiatus due to ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and will be an original adventure. "But this is real, albeit in the early stages of liftoff".

Filming on Mission: Impossible 7 was put on hold in February as the coronavirus epidemic took off in Italy.

The disease later led to a worldwide shutdown of Hollywood movie and TV production and the closure of movie theatres.

The delays have now prompted Paramount to set new release dates for both films.

His latest film "Top Gun: Maverick", which allows him to reprise his role as the pilot from the iconic '80s blockbuster, was meant to open in theaters this summer but was pushed to December 23, 2020.
