Elon Musk is shooting a feature film in space with Tom Cruise and NASA

One small step for man, one giant leap for Hollywood

While the idea of Elon Musk pairing up with Tom Cruise and NASA to shoot a film in outer space might sound like the premise of a bad joke (or a sitcom), it’s actually happening.

According to Deadline, Cruise and Musk are working with NASA to organise the feat, which will be assisted by Musk’s SpaceX programme. The project, which is allegedly in the early stages of development, will be an action adventure feature-length film, but that’s all we know so far. If the project’s successful, it will be the first narrative feature film to be shot in space.

Presumably, the project will require Musk to take time out of his burgeoning career as an EDM producer (what a shame). In the meantime, he’s got a new baby with Grimes to focus on.
