While not much else is being revealed, Deadline reported that the film could be an action-adventure. If anyone could pull off something that…intense, it’s Cruise. Plus, Bridenstine is right, NASA has ambitious plans. A film showcasing some of the incredible work happening right now truly could inspire children and young adults to be part of an amazing future.
We think the idea is fantastic, and we can’t wait to see what happens with it. What do you think about the first movie filmed in space? Are there any other names you’d love to see attached to the project? Let us know!Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
