US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Tom Cruise will be filming his next Hollywood blockbuster in live scenery – 400 km from the surface of the earth and revolving around it every 90 minutes.
The star “Top Gun” will fly through the stratosphere to shoot a still unknown film aboard the International Space Station (ISS), NASA reported on Tuesday.
Director of the American space agency Jim Bridenstine confirmed this news on Twitter, saying that he was excited that this step “will inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists” to work in outer space.
Cruz is 56 years old and he still coolly performs his stunts, hanging on the rocks.
He received a commercial pilot license after his role in the movie Top Gun as Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, a hot pilot of the US Navy who has a dangerous and reckless style of flying.
But if his last daring project is continued, Cruise will be the first Hollywood actor to appear on the screen outside the atmosphere of the planet.
The Deadline Hollywood entertainment site first reported the film was being shot over the weekend, adding that SpaceX’s tech tycoon Elon Musk joined the project.
It is planned that SpaceX for the first time in almost ten years this month will launch astronauts into space from American Earth aboard the Dragon capsule, which will be docked to the ISS.
Musk and SpaceX have not yet confirmed their involvement in the film, but Musk responded to Brydenstein’s tweet, saying that the project “must be very fun.”
His firm has established itself as a leader in the private space sector with billions of dollars of funding from NASA since the late 2000s, and its rockets have been delivering cargo to the ISS since 2012.
SpaceX has also become one of three companies to contract for nearly $ 1 billion worth of lunar spacecraft as part of a United States effort to bring people back to the moon.
Hollywood also reported that they know little of other details about the Cruise film project, but that will not be part of the franchise of the box-office movie Mission Impossible.
