Russia’s space agency said they will send a director and an actress to the International Space Station (International Space Station) in October to shoot the country’s first “space movie.
The Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) said in a statement on May 13 that it will launch the Soyuz MS-20 spacecraft from the Kazakh Baikonur Cosmodrome on Oct. 5 to send a director and an actress to the International Space Station to make a movie.
The film, tentatively titled Challenge, is a “space drama” and will be the country’s first feature film to be shot in space.
After a selection process, the film was decided to be directed by 37-year-old director Klim Shipenko and starred 36-year-old actress Yulia Peresild.
For the space mission, Shipenko and Peresild will begin special training, including centrifuge training and gravity-free flight training, at the latest on June 1.
Peresid and Spencer will be filmed during their training by Russia’s Channel One, which will also be involved in the production of the film.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) confirmed last year that it would work with Hollywood actor Tom Cruise to shoot the film on the International Space Station.
Cruise and director Doug Liman are also scheduled to travel to the International Space Station in October, but the date of their departure has not been made public.
In a separate statement on May 13, Roscosmos said that Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa and his assistant Yozo Hirano will travel to the International Space Station aboard the United spacecraft on Dec. 8.
The Russian Federal Space Agency said the flight will last 12 days and will be led by Russian astronaut Alexander Misurkin. Tomosaku Maezawa will share the trip with people on his YouTube channel.
In addition to this trip, Tomosaku Maezawa, who aspires to live in space, also intends to participate in the U.S. Space Exploration Technology Corporation (SpaceX) in 2023 to depart on a trip around the moon.
