Actor Tom Cruise, Elon Musk's SpaceX and NASA are in the early stages of developing a feature-length action adventure film set and shot in outer space, according to Deadline.
Making sure to clarify the film would not be a "Mission: Impossible" sequel, Deadline reports the project is not attached to a studio at this early stage.
Citing Cruise's affinity for pushing the envelope of action stunt work by a leading man, Deadline's brief report suggests if the actor pulls off first narrative Hollywood film shot in space he'd "be alone in the Hollywood record books."
