The tweet was followed with a report from Deadline, the Hollywood trade outlet. It stated that the Oscar-winning actor was working with Elon Musk’s SpaceX for his upcoming feature film, which would be the first to be shot in space.
The Deadline also reported that the action adventure movie is in its early stages.
While no confirmation from Cruise or his representative has been given, the Mission Impossible actor will soon be seen in Top Gun: Maverick, the sequel to the 1986 blockbuster this year. The movie was initially slated to release on June 24th but owing to the global pandemic has been pushed back to premier in December.
Filming on Mission: Impossible 7 has also been put on hold as it was being shot in Italy and after the outbreak of COVID-19, a lockdown was imposed in the country halting all businesses.
