He's renowned for taking risks as the star of the Mission: Impossible movies.
And now Tom Cruise is confirmed for what's probably his most daring mission yet.
It seems the Hollywood star, 58, will be on board the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule on its scheduled October 2021 trip to the International Space Station, according to Space Shuttle Almanac.
Aboard the first tourist trip, the schedule notes, will be Cruise and director Doug Liman, 55.
NASA and Space Shuttle veteran MichaelLopez-Alegria will be the pilot on the trip and there is one, as yet unfilled, tourist place available in the new four-person Crew Dragon.
It had been announced earlier this year that Cruise and Liman had teamed up with SpaceX founder Elon Musk and NASA to make a movie aboard the ISS.
Back in May, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine tweeted: 'NASA is excited to work with @TomCruise on a film aboard the @Space_Station!'
He explained: 'We need popular media to inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists to make @NASA's ambitious plans a reality.'
Little else is known about Cruise's plans to shoot in space except that it's believed Liman has penned a draft screenplay for the project.
The groundbreaking public-private partnership between NASA and Elon Musk's SpaceX took a giant leap forward on May 30 when the Crew Dragon spacecraft aboard a Falcon 9 rocket was launched from Florida's Kennedy Space Center.
On board were NASA astronauts Douglas Hurley and Robert Behnken marking the first crewed launch to the International Space Station from the United States since the final flight of NASA's Space Shuttle fleet in 2011.
The mission was a complete success with the astronauts returning safely to Earth on August 2.
