Russia announces actor, director for first-ever movie made in space

CNN – Russia is hurrying to be the first nation to film a movie in space after announcing plans to send an actress and a director to the International Space Station (ISS) in October.

State news agency Ria Novosti said on Thursday that 35-year-old Yulia Peresild would star in the new movie, which will be shot in space and directed by 37-year-old Klim Shipenko.

The movie will be called “Vyzov” (“The Challenge”) and center around the story of a surgeon who has to operate on a sick cosmonaut in space because his medical condition prevents him from returning to earth to be treated, CNN reported.

Peresild and Shipenko, who are well-known in Russia,  were picked after Roscosmos, the country’s space agency, held a competition for applicants in November.

Peresild has appeared in a number of Russian films and TV series, while Shipenko’s 2020 movie “Serf” was one of Russia’s highest-grossing films, CNN reported.

Both will need to undergo rigorous training before traveling to space.

Russia is neck-and-neck with US actor Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman who announced in 2020 that they were working on a movie that will be filmed in space.

The movie, which has no title or release date yet, is being developed in collaboration with Elon Musk’s SpaceX. Cruise will travel to space, where he will be based at the ISS, according to Deadline.

The post Russia announces actor, director for first-ever movie made in space appeared first on NBC2 News.
