The film project with popular actress Joelia Peresild and director Klim Sjipenko appears to be part of a new kind of space race. US space agency NASA announced last year that it wanted to make a film with actor Tom Cruise at the International Space Station.
Russia now wants to be the first to implement such a unique project. There was no shortage of potential participants. Roskosmos received around 3000 registrations. The choice ultimately fell on the 36-year-old actress Peresild, best known for the 2010 film The Edge. She is now set to star in a ‘space drama’, co-produced by Roskosmos and a Russian state broadcaster. . . They have yet to announce the exact role of the actress or the kind of plot to be expected.
The film crew will be trained in a reconstructed part of the ISS in the coming months. These preparations are also filmed. The team will then fly to the ISS with a Soyuz capsule on October 5. “Wish us luck,” Peresild wrote on Instagram.
