Tom Cruise and NASA
And the US Space Agency (NASA) announced in May 2020 that the famous actor Tom Cruise was cooperating with it to shoot a movie in space, without specifying a date for the start of filming.

“NASA is excited to work with Tom Cruise on a movie onboard the International Space Station,” NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said in a tweet on Twitter.

Bridenstine did not provide any further details, but the tweet was published after a report by the online entertainment website “Deadline”, stating that Cruz is working with Tesla and businessman Elon Musk, CEO of “Space X”, on a film project that will be the first feature film to be shot in the space.
