Tom Cruise To Become First Actor to Film a Movie in Space

Working with Universal and Doug Liman on a new project.

Tom Cruise is all about taking his acting expertise to new heights. After the success of Top Gun: Maverick, Cruise has redefined taking his projects o new heights, but now, it appears that he will quite literally do so.


The 60-year-old Hollywood action veteran is set to become the first actor to shoot a film in space. When it comes to new heights, Cruise is quite literally going above and beyond for a project that is out of this world. Cruise is currently working alongside director Doug Liman, who worked on The Bourne Identity and have been in talks with Universal Filmed Entertainment Group (UFEG) to send the actor to the International Space Station for his next film. NY Post reports that UFEG Chairman Donna Langley confirms,

“I think Tom Cruise is taking us to space. He’s taking the world to space.

That’s the plan. We have a great project in development with Tom…Taking a rocket up to the Space Station and shooting.”

Langley added that the film in question will mostly be filmed on Earth but features “the character [going] up to space to save the day. She also said that she is quite hopeful that Cruise will become “the first civilian to do a spacewalk outside of the space station.”

It has not yet been revealed what the project is exactly, nor when it will go into production. If the project does happen, Cruise has a chance of becoming the first-ever actor to film a movie in outer space.
