Just when it seems Tom Cruise has conquered every feat in Hollywood, he has another trick up his sleeve.

While Cruise routinely engages in risky stunts for the “Mission: Impossible” franchise, Deadline reported that this film will not be associated with those movies and that Elon Musk’s SpaceX is also in the mix.
In past “Mission: Impossible” installments, Cruise performed daring stunts such as hanging off the side of a jet plane and scaling skyscrapers.

According to Deadline, which first reported the news, the film is “in the early stages of liftoff.” As of right now, no film studio is on board, per the outlet.
Reps for Cruise and SpaceX did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
