Get ready for a film concept that’s out of this world. Actor Tom Cruise and Elon Musk’s SpaceX are working with NASA to shoot an action film in outer space. Representatives for Cruise and SpaceX didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment, but NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine confirmed the news Tuesday in a tweet.
NASA is excited to work with @TomCruise on a film aboard the @Space_Station! We need popular media to inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists to make @NASA’s ambitious plans a reality. pic.twitter.com/CaPwfXtfUv
