Cruise, Liman, and others will travel to space to film the movie through a partnership with NASA, which contracts SpaceX for space travel.

There is no word yet on the plot of the space movie or its title, but Deadline reports that Liman and Cruise are optimistic that the movie will be made "in the very near future."

Cruise is known for performing his own stunts and taking things to the next level, and he's really going after it in a new way with this new space movie.

Cruise's next big movie is Top Gun: Maverick, which was delayed to December due to COVID-19. Cruise wanted to fly an actual F-18 fighter jet in the movie, but the Navy said no.
