It will instead be an original action/adventure, and will mark the first time in cinematic history that a narrative film has been shot entirely in outer space.

Deadline reported earlier Tuesday that Cruise was teaming up with Elon Musk's Space X and NASA for the untitled action-adventure movie, which appears to be in the early stages of development.

Cruise recently broke his ankle filming Mission: Impossible Fallout - where in the same movie he is hanging from a helicopter.

That's because Hollywood megastar Tom Cruise and Elon Musk's SpaceX are working on an out-of-this-world project with NASA to shoot a movie on the International Space Station, a multibillion-dollar laboratory that orbits about 250 miles above Earth. Several well-heeled space tourists have visited the station over the years as well. His tweet said, "NASA is excited to work with @TomCruise on a film aboard the @Space_Station!". We need popular media to inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists to make @NASA's ambitious plans a reality. The evaluation process that includes medical tests, screenings, and extensive trainings usually takes two years to accomplish.

Media outlets and police suspect that the 28-year-old celebrity manager also killed himself. "It's such devastating news. Actor Sushant Singh Rajput was planning to get married in November this year, according to the late actor's cousin.

Cruise has physically distanced experience with the space station, as narrator of a 2002 IMAX documentary that was filmed on board the ISS.

Cruise famously filmed a scene for the latest Ethan Hunt movie while sky diving and in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation was strapped onto the side of an aeroplane as it took off. Knowing Cruise, he'll want to film inside and out of the confines of ISS.

The ISS was originally built as a partnership among dozens of countries, but the USA and Russian Federation are its primary operators.
