But one of his upcoming film may put his daredevil DNA to the test as he undertakes a zero-gravity spacewalk. It could cause his steadfast nerves to fray in unthinkable ways.

“We have a great project in development with Tom that does contemplate him taking a rocket to the Space Station”, Donna Langley explained to the BBC.
“And hopefully he will become the first civilian to do a space walk outside of the International Space Station,” she added.
Donna also revealed some information about Tom’s role in the top-secret blockbuster: “He will play a down-on-his-luck guy who finds himself in the position of being the only one who could save Earth.”
