Action star Tom Cruise is working on a movie that will be shot in space, according to NASA.

NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine took to social media today to confirm the rumour, saying filming would take place on the International Space Station (ISS), about 400 kilometres above Earth.

"We need popular media to inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists to make NASA's ambitious plans a reality," he said.

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 (US time).

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

CNN reported this as the movie being shot in outer space. Well, the ISS is inside our atmosphere, so it's not outer space.

The atmosphere is 9-17 km from the surface.
The ISS is about 400 km away.
No, you're thinking of the troposphere or stratosphere. Above that we have the mesosphere, the thermosphere, and the exosphere. The ISS is inside the thermosphere.

The ISS is beyond the Karman line and so is considered to be in outer space
