In Top-Gun: Maverick and Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning, Tom Cruise, one of Hollywood’s top adrenaline addicts, will find his next thrills by leaving Earth for a new adventure in space.
The action actor is going to space for his next film, and the climax will reportedly occur both inside and outside the International Space Station. Cruise will make history by doing the first spacewalk by a civilian if all goes according to plan.
Tom Cruise had a phenomenal year, with Top Gun: Maverick being the highest-grossing film of the year. Even though he has been shooting Mission: Impossible 7 and 8, which are said to be his last appearances as Ethan Hunt, the 60-year-old actor doesn’t seem to be ready to slow down and is instead going to challenge himself to new heights.
Universal Filmed Entertainment Group chairperson Donna Langley told the BBC that Cruise may be set to take his daredevil ways to new heights for a previously untapped role, despite already holding qualifications in skydiving, as a helicopter and plane pilot, and going further than most other actors would ever dream of going to create a film as tremendous and authentic as it can be.
“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, that does contemplate him doing just that. Taking a rocket up to the space station and shooting and hopefully being the first civilian to do a spacewalk outside of the space station,” Langley said.
Tom Cruise will make his first steps into space in the not-too-distant future, what with the project has received approval from former NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstein and the idea that this could be the first Hollywood movie to film in space, breaking new ground in the process. Now that Top Gun: Maverick is available on home video and on-demand, it’s getting a lot of attention, but all eyes will soon be on Cruise’s next big-screen trip, Mission: Impossible 7: Dead Reckoning Part 1, which opens in cinemas on July 7, 2023.
