Tom Cruise May Team Up With Elon Musk to Shoot an Action Movie in Space
Given current pandemic restrictions, might be the safest place to film
Quite a past few days for Elon Musk — new kid, mom’s mad, selling his houses and possibly all his possessions, lost billions in company money over a few self-sabotaging tweets and made a questionable suggestion about opening up America amid a pandemic (along with suggesting a questionable baby name).
Now, in his sanest moment, Musk might help Tom Cruise film a movie in space. As reported by Deadline, the actor may team up with Musk’s Space X endeavor (along with NASA) for an action/adventure film shot in outer space.
Few details are known, but apparently it’s not a Mission: Impossible film and there’s no confirmed studio as of yet.
Given that Cruise prefers to do his own, often dangerous stunts — he broke his ankle during a rooftop leap on Mission: Impossible Fallout and has scaled mountains, 123-floor skyscrapers and hung off of jet planes during takeoff during other M:I films— a trip to space might be a nice break for the actor, now 58 years old.
It’s not the first foray into space for Cruise, at least in film: He had a few spaceship moments during 2013’s underrated Oblivion.
