Tom Cruise is suiting up to be a space cadet, NASA has confirmed.
A NASA official announced on Twitter that the Mission: Impossible actor wants to film a movie above the clouds — specifically, onboard the International Space Station.
“NASA is excited to work with Tom Cruise on a film aboard the Space Station!” NASA’s Administrator Jim Bridenstine tweeted on Tuesday.
The confirmation follows reports that Cruise, 57, was looking to team up with billionaire Elon Musk’s SpaceX to create a movie in space.
“We need popular media to inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists to make @NASA’s ambitious plans a reality,” Bridenstine tweets.
No details have been released about the stunt-loving actor’s planned film, although Deadline reports that no studio is attached to the project and that it will not be an instalment in the Mission: Impossible franchise.
