Tom Cruise And Elon Musk To Shoot A Movie In Space!
Yes, we're going into outer space!
Space movies are one of the finest we can find in Hollywood. Films like 2001: A Space Odyssey, Gravity, Interstellar, The Martian, etc have defined generations of film making. But, it seems like we’re finally making the big leap into actual space! And who better to make that leap but Tom Cruise himself, with the help of Elon Musk? Here’s what we know!
Tom Cruise’s stunts go interstellar!
We all know how serious Cruise is about his stunts. The actor is particularly popular for doing his own stunts in his films. These include Mission Impossible: Fallout, Ghost Protocol, and Rogue Nation. But now, it looks like he is going interstellar in a collaboration with NASA and Elon Musk’s Space X. And no, it’s not going to be shot on a set, but in actual outer space! Moreover, it’s not going to be a part of the Mission Impossible franchise either.
With Tom Cruise’s track record, this sounds exactly like something he’d want to do. And he isn’t scared of some injury either. In fact, in Fallout, he broke his ankle, which halted the movie’s production for weeks. Cruise recalls:
I just (wanted to) keep going because I know I’m not doing this again. I had to go into full rehab.
Furthermore, Cruise explains how passionate he is about his stunts:
I spent years training for these things and I have been doing it for years. So we do everything we can possible to limit any kind of mistakes and we are very thorough about how we approach these things and calculate it. When you are going, there are times I’m not wearing a helmet and we are going high speed.
But, Tom Cruise isn’t the only one who could star in the film!
We might get Musk in the film too!
We’re all familiar with how crazy Elon Musk can go. And he is a big fan of sci-fi pop culture as well. He has starred before in Rick and Morty, Iron Man 2, and South Park, which is why it is entirely possible to think he might be a part of this film too. But, the only way to find out about that is to wait for more information from NASA and him. So, stay tuned and let us know what you think in the comments!
