He gave no details but the tweet followed a report in Hollywood trade outlet Deadline that Cruise was working with Tesla and SpaceX entrepreneur Elon Musk to make what would be the first feature film to be shot in space.

The proposed action-adventure is in its early stages, Deadline reported on Monday.

Representatives for Cruise did not immediately return a request for comment.

Mission: Impossible star Tom Cruise, 57, is renowned for his daredevil films and for doing his own stunts. He flew fighter jets for the upcoming Top Gun: Maverick, hung off the side of a plane as it took off in Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation in 2015 and climbed the Burj Khalifa skyscraper in Dubai – the tallest building in the world – for Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol.

Filming on Mission: Impossible 7 was put on hold in February as the coronavirus epidemic took off in Italy. The disease later led to a worldwide shutdown of Hollywood movie and TV production and the closure of movie theaters.
