Tom Cruise will officially be making his first voyage to outer space in October 2021, where he and Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman are set to shoot the first-ever feature film in orbit.

According to reports, Cruise and Liman’s names have been added to the 2020-2023 International Space Station (ISS) manifest. The duo will be riding aboard Elon Musk‘s SpaceX Crew Dragon rocket and capsule to the ISS, and Cruise is working together with both Musk and NASA to film an action-adventure title on the modular space station. The project is still untitled, but Universal Studios has committed $200 million USD to create the movie.

News of Cruise’s venture to outer space was first confirmed in May 2020 by NASA administrator, Jim Bridenstine. “NASA is excited to work with @TomCruise on a film aboard the @Space_Station!” he tweeted. “We need popular media to inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists to make @NASA’s ambitious plans a reality.”

In related news, reality TV show Space Hero wants to send its contestants to outer space.
