Tom Cruise has previously announced that he is shooting for an action film in space this year. He became the first star to do so, being beaten by a Russian film crew.
Tom Cruise’s plans to become the first actor to shoot a film in space ended on Tuesday, with the Russian film crew announcing that they were going to the International Space Station to begin shooting for an event called The Challenge.
NASA has revealed that the Soyuz MS-19 spacecraft crashed into the International Space Station on October 5 in Kazakhstan with Russian cosmonaut Anton Shakaplerov, actor Yulia Peresild and filmmaker Klim Shipenko.
According to a CNN report, Percillad said, “Today everything is new to us, bringing in something completely new every 30 seconds. It’s almost impossible to believe it all came true. I still feel like I’m still dreaming.” The team is expected to spend 12 days at the space center.
Peresild and Shipenko return to Earth on October 16 in another Soyuz spacecraft, landing in Kazakhstan just after midnight ET the next day. The project is “an expansion of commercial space opportunities to include feature filmmaking,” NASA said in a statement.
The challenge, which aired on Russian Channel One, became the first film to be shot in space. The development comes just months after Doug Lyman directed the $ 200 million space-based action film with NASA and Elon Musk’s SpaceX.

According to a tweet from space shuttle Almanac, Tom is due to be at the space station in October, but the exact date for his launch has not yet been revealed.
Tom, who is currently shooting for Mission: Impossible 8, has been in the news recently for reports that he is learning to fly an 80-year-old military plane for the film. It is the third film in the MI series directed by Christopher Macquarie and is set to release on 27 May 2022.
