"We need popular media to inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists to make NASA 's ambitious plans a reality", Bridenstine emphasized, commenting on such a film's potential to contribute to the public good.

According to Deadline, Tom Cruise and Elon Musk's Space X are working with NASA to get the first narrative feature film shot in space made.

In response to Bridenstine's tweet, Musk wrote that the venture "should be a lot of fun!"

The International Space Station (ISS) is both a space station and an artificial satellite present in low Earth orbit and fully visible with the naked eye during night time.

Details about the upcoming movie are unknown, but fans can expect to see Cruise break new ground in the film industry by being the first actor to shoot a film in outer space.

Champions League And Europa Leage Set For Mini-Tournament In August
All ties will be played as single legs across two different stadiums in Lisbon - the Estadio da Luz and the Estadio Jose Alvalade. It is understood UEFA remains fully committed to the competition, which proved a big hit in its inaugural run in 2018-19.

According to Deadline, this project is not another Mission: Impossible instalment, nor does it have a studio attached.

SpaceX was one of three companies awarded nearly one billion dollars in contracts to build lunar landers, as part of efforts by the United States to return human beings to the moon.

But now, Tom Cruise is sick of acting and wants the real thing.

Cruise's roles in the past have exposed him to high amounts of risk; he has been known to never back away from physical danger and for doing many of his own stunts. The site said that it would be an action-adventure film, but not part of the "Mission: Impossible" film series that the actor has starred in since 1996.

He also performed risky stunts on high-rise buildings, such as jumping across rooftops and climbing skyscrapers.
