The action star will travel in a SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft to the International Space Station next year.
Tom Cruise has been given a release date for his trip to space.
The man of action will become the first star to film in space while aboard a SpaceX Crew Dragon trip to the International Space Station, and he now has a countdown to prepare.
It will take off with astronauts and other aspiring astronauts in October 2021, according to the official ISS 2020-2023 manifesto, obtained by TMZ.
The Mission: Impossible star will be joined in space by his Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman.
Tom will also work with SpaceX chief Elon Musk and NASA experts on the ambitious film, the title of which has yet to be announced.
